All RV'ers know that an RV rubber roof should be cleaned every three months. But I've stood on Sherman's roof in an RV park and it's pretty easy to tell that most rubber roofs hardly ever get cleaned.
One of the reasons for regular cleaning is to be able to inspect the seams and caulking. Very important to do this because when a roof starts to leak it can mean the end of the RV. Or at least some very expensive repairs.
And sure enough, I noticed one or two spots that need to be re-caulked.
Sherman is going to be 18 years old this year. Hard to believe. We think he's got a few good years left in him though!
We were originally thinking of driving him up to Saskatchewan for our summer job. But when we accepted the new campground manager offer from Cabri Regional Park and found out that it came with a mobile home for our use as part of the deal, we decided to leave Sherman in Mexico one more summer.
Speaking of which, I had an email from them yesterday with our contract enclosed. It says that the mobile home is a three bedroom. Holy cow, what will we do with all of that space?? Well, part of it will be used up when our daughter and grandchildren come and stay with us for a while in June. And, we're hoping to be able to accept some couchsurfers while we're there. We had tried to do this at the last park we were at, but it was so out of the way that we never had any requests. Cabri Regional Park is further south and closer to the trans Canada highway, so hopefully we'll have some couchsurfers come and visit us!
Our location from May 1-Sept 30.
Also, I downloaded the trial version of the campground manager software that the park uses. That way, we'll be familiar with the system for when we start accepting reservations on May 5th! Our job responsibilities are a little different at this park compared to the one we were at last year, and we think (hope) that it's going to mean for a better experience for both us and the park we're managing.
We didn't do much else yesterday. Ruth did some reading, and I had an afternoon nap!
We're going for a hike this morning, not sure where we'll end up, or how far. We can see a dirt road leading up into the mountains, so I guess we'll head that way. Oh, and we're off to a show this evening!
Tickets were only 30 pesos ($2.65) each and it's reserved seating. Should be fun!
