Hey everyone . . . I am just a little bit excited. OK, a WHOLE LOT excited! This morning was my appointment at Bumgarner Camping Center to get my junky, broken LP box removed and a brand, spanking new one installed.
I shared a Story with you last week about having to MacGyver my LP box in order to go camping at the SC DOG. Lots of cinches, straps, and duct tape were needed to keep that old lime green box where it was supposed to be so that it wouldn't go flying off into the road.
It only took Mr. Robert an hour to remove my old box and install the new one. Since Momma Sharon wasn't allowed in the service area, a tech named Tommy offered to take some photos for her. Can you believe that?! Look at the mess down in the bottom of the box . . . yikes!! The frame was broken on both sides and the screws that should have attached everything to the frame were AWOL!! Holy moly, how scary is this?
Mr. Robert removed all our red straps, took out the 5-gallon bucket that carries my chocks and power cord, removed the case holding my battery, and then walked that old box to the dumpster. Before putting everything back in its place, he even gave me a good washing where Momma Sharon has never been able to reach in all these years of giving me a bath. Oh yeh, that felt good!
And boy howdy, look at me now!! New Interstate Battery 24 and a new Little Guy, perfectly matched lime green LP box!! There's a rubber gasket, real screws, black powder-coated frame that's snuggly (and properly) attached to my AL-KO frame, and a locking mechanism that WORKS!
That old LP box served us faithfully for nine camping seasons and the guys at Bumgarner Camping Center said that this one should do the trick for another nine years!!
I have a few more Stories coming up for you in the next few days, but this one is definitely the biggest Story I've had to tell in a long time. Thanks for dropping by and until it's Story Time again, always remember . . .
"Peace, Love & Much Excitement"
