Most of you already know that Miss Terry can do darned near anything she sets her mind to, from driving the motorhome to building the cabinets in our old MCI bus conversion, so it was only natural for her to be the one to help Phil Botnick with installing our inverter the other day. But even Terry reserves the right to call “Girl” from time to time.
She proved that when Phil was preparing our battery compartment prior to installing our new Lifeline AGM batteries. It is exposed to road grime and I have not been very good about getting under there and cleaning it, so it needed a good wash down. That’s when Terry used the Girl option and stood back and watched him. I must really be in touch with my feminine side, because that’s what I did, too!
Phil’s pretty wife Ann is a tiny thing, but she sure didn’t call Girl when it was time to drag the big old heavy batteries to the back of the Explorer so I could return them for the core charge. By the time I had the first one in one of the cardboard boxes the new batteries came in and then loaded it into the SUV, Annie had dragged the other two across our concrete pad to me!
When we took the old batteries back to RV Renovators I spotted this beautiful classic Airstream 350LE motorhome. Somebody said it was a 1990 model but I’m not sure. Somebody obviously spent a lot of time polishing it to a mirror finish.
