While Val went for a haircut by Heather, I took a few boxes to our storage then cleaned up the yard some. After lunch I was organizing the basement when George stopped by and we worked on my electrical problem. Well, FINALLY, we found the problem...my shore power plug was actually near extinction. What I mean is that after checking a few things, George took the shore power outlet apart and found the plug had been short-circuited and was near burned out. We took that apart and replace it with one he had. That SOLVED our problem. We now have full power without any interruption. While we were working Paulette and Val were chatting so we joined them inside and had a couple glasses of wine. After they left, Donna and Marcel came over and had a tour of our new home and we had a couple glasses of wine. We had dinner after they left then watched a movie in the evening.
We went to Salmon Arm for an appointment at Cdn Tire to render our Beaver an officially and legal Canadian motorhome! The inspection was a bit of a joke as the guy never checked anything except making sure the numbers matched. We went to pick up our mail, had lunch, dropped off some clothes at Sally Ann then picked up the MH and drove to Tri-Crown to check on a satellite for the roof. The price was reasonable and what I thought it would be. We then drove to Sorrento where we got the MH licensed, insured then came home. The process was not too painful but lengthy and we ended paying over $5,000 for BC Tax. What a rip-off!!!! OF course, we don’t get refund for the tax paid on the truck!!!
We came home and had a glass of wine, dinner then watched a movie in the evening.
I got a call yesterday that our batteries had arrived so back to Kamloops we go and we picked up the car too with a new alternator. On the way in, we stopped at HORTON for a light breakfast. We picked up the batteries at “Freightways”, stopped for gas for both vehicles then came home. I went to Chase and bottled and brought our wine home; we have another batch there already made so we won’t run out for a while. Once home, I worked on finances and blog; Val worked in her garden. We had HH at Donna and Marcel’s place then we came home and cooked dinner and watched a movie in the evening.
