Separation Anxiety

I've been slacking on the blog front, but there's a good reason, I promise! Since last Wednesday, our trailer's been in the shop for its defective central air. When Steve called up the technicians to report our troubles from the last trip, he was met with skepticism. They asked questions like: "Were you plugged in?" and "Are you sure you were plugged in?" Wow. Really? It's like the first time they've ever heard of a new RV having some problems.

In any case, Steve drove the trailer over last Wednesday morning before work. Luckily, he didn't have to remove the hitch, which we were worried about (and God knows we're never re-installing that thing again). We thought we'd be back to pick it up in the next day or two, but the techs called Thursday to report the central air was indeed broken and they'd need to order a new one. Hate to say I told ya so, but....

So now it's been a week and we have yet to hear back about whether the new unit's been installed. I'm assuming it can't be ready yet, because I'm sure they'd be anxious for us to pick it up if it was. Unfortunately, we'd been planning to take a mini trip this weekend, but we're going to have to stick around here for family stuff -- and with the trailer in the shop until who knows when, it probably wouldn't have worked out anyway.

Hopefully, we'll be hearing from them soon. I don't like being away from the trailer this long!


  1. You've got it BAD - the Hitch-Itch that is!! Happens to the best of us. Hopefully you will be reunited soon and can go off on another adventure.
