WELL, HERE'S A DRAFT I STARTED SOME TIME AGO. NOW IT APPEARS THE ADMIN HAS SOLVED ALL MY HACKER PROBLEMS. THANKS!
I'm making progress. For every step backward, I'm taking one and a half forward. (smile) At the end of October, I picked up the travel trailer and towed it to the place near home where a good neighbor is allowing me to park it. That was the forward movement. Then, the backward step came when one of the tires blew itself to smithereens coming back from a trip to Camping World to get a few things up and running.
During all these steps forward and backward, I've had Nina with me sometimes or Douglas at other times. Don't know what I'd have done without them. They've given freely of their time, and I'll be eternally grateful. Douglas took all the tires home with him and, two days later brought the new ones, already installed on the wheels. He put the tires on and accompanied me back to the meadow. He has researched all kinds of information and is mentoring me in all the things I need to know and remember about caring for and traveling with my trailer.
One thing I've discovered is that those years traveling with Tony, pulling our 40' fifth-wheel, didn't make me all that knowledgeable about this trailer. Tony did most of the work that would have meant a lot to my new situation. I knew about many tasks, but I didn't assimilate the experience by doing things myself. So, I'm in learning mode.
As more progress comes to pass, I'll be back to update. Also, I guess I have to come every day to delete the hacker's posts.
