    Default Nice and unscheduled RV cost

    I *knew* that the auxiliary batteries needed to be changed soon, but I didn't think about the main battery for the motorhome would need to be changed as well, but when dh went to get the auxiliary batteries out to buy new ones the motorhome was dead. So we are now the proud owners of 3 new batteries.

    The oil and filter change was done this morning and that was less than $40 so thank God for small favors

    So now we just have a few tweaks and improvements to do before our first big trip of the season. I'm ready to go!

    I have to get a new coach battery myself! My RV is still in storage, I think I'll be getting it out in a few weeks. I'm going to get it all ready to take on some trips, I didn't use it at all last year! Have fun! I love my RV!

    We didn't use ours last year, either.

    RV ownership is not for the faint of heart when it comes to bills, and not for those who aren't very good at tinkering.

    We're just happy the snow is mostly gone off the roof of ours.

    Yes, that is so true. I bought mine when I was married and my ex used to take care of all of the little things. Even though I love it, I'm going to put it up for sale this spring and see if I can sell it, all of these extra bills are killing my budget and I just don't use it enough.

    My dh fixed all the problems this weekend! Yeah! We found a blown fuse and a reset button. Now the new batteries are fully charged and the generator that hasn't turned on in months purrs like a kitten



    Now it's time to get everything ready to rock-n-roll!
