Tuesday, January 10, 2012 (Travel to Usery Mountain Regional Park, Mesa, AZ)

I was up just before 6:00 this morning...to make sure I had a little "coffee time" before having to get to work.  It was one of the chillier mornings of late...only 34F...but the sky was clear and it was going to be another beautiful day.

We left our campsite at 9:00 and after stopping at the sani-dump on the way out, we were on our way to Mesa.  Once we arrived at RV Traders, we disconnected and they quickly whisked away our fifth-wheel taking it to the work area.

For the next few hours, I sat in the truck reading...I also managed to catch a Wi-Fi signal on my iPod so was texting with our son, Chris in Vancouver.  Steve spent most of his time with the techs at the trailer. The techs had not come across our noisy tank situation before, so before replacing parts on a trial and error basis they contacted tech support at Suburban...the manufacturer. They recommended checking the element for sediment deposits. The problem ended up being a thick white corrosion on the element which they replaced under our extended warranty. We double filter our water so Steve was amazed at how bad it was.

Almost 3 hours later we were all finished at RV Traders and our way to Usery Mountain Regional Park.  Site #10 proved to be a bit of a challenge to back into due to a small bush on the right-hand side but Steve managed and we were soon levelled off and unhitched.  I gave the carpets a quick vacuum and then got the inside all set up while Steve took care of the outside stuff.

After we were all set up...including the satellite dish...we decided to go for a walk around the campground.  It is a nice campground but we both feel that McDowell Mountain Regional Park is much nicer.  The sites are closer together here and being closer to town, you can hear highway noise.  There is also a shooting range close by and of course you can hear that...it sounds like constant fireworks.  At McDowell Mountain, it was so quiet!

We had a beautiful sunset this evening...
