Tonight I’m parked at a Cracker Barrel in Sioux Falls, SD, waiting to go back into the repair shop tomorrow morning to address a new concern the shop created when they fixed the original problem.
I can tell you all the whole story in a future post once it’s over, but really it won’t be anything you haven’t read about on this (or other) RVing blogs before. RVs are complicated and they need fixing. A lot. Fortunately this time the issue was just one pin on my 7-pin connector on the Casita – relatively cheap and easy in the grand scheme of things. I wasn’t stranded, this will be a relatively minor delay, all is well.
But no, what I really want to address about all this is what I feel is the number one trait that a full-timer needs to be happy and successful on the road:
If you can be flexible; any mechanical problem, human error, change of plan, construction snarl, bad weather snap, cell phone coverage gap, etc. can be gotten around. This one thing has saved me so much stress and pain in my five years of traveling full-time.
And tonight, being flexible means overnighting at a lot with easy access to the repair shop…which also happens to be right next door to a movie theater. I’ll take it!

I arrive at the Fiberglass RV Rally in Quartzsite, AZ on Wednesday the 10th.

For those not in the know, most molded fiberglass RVs are made with a top and a bottom half,…Read More
