Going back to a search for a mobile RV repair company, he finally found one with good reviews who said they had a camera. Happy Hals Mobile RV Repair would be able to come out tomorrow afternoon between noon and 3....yay! finally!
With that taken care of, time to carry on with the rest of the day...mainly shopping! We started off by heading to the nearest Verizon dealer which happened to be just over 2 miles away at Go Wireless on Flamingo Road. Although we were there quite awhile, I must give a "shout out" to Eric for all the work he did for us. I had closed my account down last spring when we returned to Canada. We were no longer able to suspend our account for the 6 months we wouldn't be using it...or should I say, you can suspend it but you still had to pay your monthly bills. That wasn't going to happen, so I closed it but I had a $125 credit. After a lot of on-line "chats" with Verizon, they were unable to mail a cheque to Canada but our credit would be available once we returned to the US and could provide them with an address to mail the cheque to. Well, I wanted to have that credit applied to a new account and after spending a lot of time on the phone with Verizon, Eric was successful in taking care of my request. I don't know how long we were there...at least an hour...but we left with a new account opened, the $125 credit applied to it and our Verizon Jetpak activated. Thank you so much, Eric! Such a great experience when you get excellent customer service!
Next stop was Costco...where we started with lunch. After stocking up there, we had one final stop at Walmart, across the street from Sam's Town.
Once home and with the groceries all put away, it was time to relax outside in the shade with an adult beverage! Ahhhh....love the warmth...
By 3:00 when we had had no phone call and no Jim, our patience was wearing thin. Steve called and only to get voicemail...that said for faster response, leave a text. So he did. No response, no phone call.
Jim finally arrived at 4:00...with no camera. Steve went over everything that has been done. Jim decided to have another look at the taps, taking them off. Nope...no leaks there. About a half hour later, he left to go back to the shop and pick up the camera..."it's not far, I'll be right back", were his last words.
As time marched on and he didn't return, we started getting madder and madder. We sat outside having a "not so happy" happy hour, watching hopefully each time a truck came into the park. We had totally given up hope and gone inside to get dinner going when Jim returned...it was after 6:30!
He said he and the owner had discussed our situation and they came to the conclusion that there had to be a hairline crack in the shower pan. And guess what, he immediately took a look at the shower floor and said "there it is". Neither Steve nor I could "see" it ...but it did make sense that there must be one there somewhere. Of course, it was now Friday night and a weekend...he said he would start checking around on Monday for a new shower pan.
Saturday morning I worked on a blog while Steve decided to take a magnifying glass and flashlight into the shower and see if he could find a hairline crack. There was no crack where Jim said he found one, but after much searching, Steve found it. Now that we know where it is, it's amazing we and three RV techs never noticed it before...it looks so obvious! However when you stand back it's not that noticeable.
Apparently there is a show here...we didn't think we would still be here at the next showtime (6pm) but we got chatting to a fellow (also staying at the RV park) and next thing we knew, Jim from South Carolina had joined us at our table. After getting to know one another he said that he had property plenty big enough to park our rig if we were ever in his area. Sweet!
And then the show started.
The Owl, Cougar, Eagle, Wolf and Bear were all animated...
After eating too much (as usual at a buffet), it was time waddle home.
On the way out, I thought I'd try my luck out at a slot, throwing in $5. Well, I won enough to pay for our drinks and dinner...nice!
The Eastside Cannery Casino is next door to the KOA and is lit up at night time...the lights are constantly changing colour...
Great end to the day!
