Went out to look it over with Gale. Nosing around inside I saw a strange looking monitor on a swing-arm. No computer I could see anywhere. Turned to the guy selling it:
“What’s that thing”
“A television and DVD player.” He pushed a button and the screen lit up, another button and a DVD popped out. “It works.”
“THAT’S a television?”
The guy looks at me like I’m crazy. Gale intervenes.
“Televisions have changed a lot since you saw one, Jack.”
Spang Rip Van Winkled again.
Paid an RV repair sales place to go over it with a fine toothed comb. Everything wrong with it at least I know. Looks better than I’d dared hope. The RV guy who checked it also thought it was impressive.
Fridge, heater, shower, sinks, water heater, generator, AC all work. Roof is steel, more akin to a school bus than an RV, coach structure is aluminum, not wood.
Got transport again and ready to rock and roll.
It was last registered in Arizona, so today it’s off to get insurance on it, then get tags. It already has a valid TX inspection sticker.
Life begins again.
