Day 187 - Another Repair - Done

Back in Nevada, I heard something banging on the front of the RV. The left front turn signal lens was hanging by a thread after coming loose. You can see the drips of glue used by someone in a poor attempt to hold the lens in place. I put it back and used some Gorilla tape to hold the lens in place and promptly forgot about it. The lens eventually fell off. I looked on EBay and was surprised to find a brand new replacement for $20 with free shipping from Ontario, CA. I went ahead and took the buy-it-now option and it was at my mom’s house in a couple of days.

The replacement was pretty straightforward. Open the generator drawer, remove the bulb and a couple of screws. An oddity is that the upper retainer was a zip-tie. Anyway, it looks like new.

Right now, I’m sitting in the sun in front of the office using the free WiFi. Verizon doesn’t seem to work very well. Even with three bars of LTE, no Internet. SMS and voice works but no data...

That is serendipity if I've ever seen it! $20, what a deal!

Nope. But I seem to be spending an inordinate amount of time on turn signals...

It was just a hunch to look on EBay. I was a little surprised to find it.
