We started the day with another fabulous breakfast buffet.

Today’s seminars are on finding good boondocking spots and then on the use of a water bladder.  Miss Peggy and I have a water bladder that hold 45 gallons.  We put it into the back of our pickup truck or the bed of the trailer behind our ATV.  We go somewhere and fill it up from a spigot, and bring it back to the fifthwheel and pump it into the fifthwheel’s tank when we have run out of fresh water.

I then went and helped out a solo lady with problems with her water system and hot water heater on her motor home.

We had such a big breakfast that lunch was very light.  I spent most of the afternoon repacking the garage of our fifthwheel.

Greg from RV Solar Solutions came over to our fifthwheel and gave us a free checkup and some suggestions on how we can properly install more batteries when we install our new inverter/charger.  The inverter/charger does two things we need while bookdocking. The inverter part takes 12 volt DC power from our batteries and inverts it to 120 volt AC so we can run things like TV, DVD players, sewing machines, the printer etc without being hooked up to electricity.  The charger part takes 120 volt AC from either a plug in or one of our generators and properly charges our 12 volt DC battery bank.

Our new inverter/charger is somewhere on the UPS truck trying to find us.  It is from a company called Xantrex.

We were back in our fifthwheel by 6:30 due to the cold.

Tomorrow is our last active day of the RV-Dreams Boondocking Rally with open house on a number of the rigs at 11 AM (our’s included – so we are cleaning up tonight), a final        Q & A session and Valentines Day dinner in the evening.

 

“And one of them, a lawyer, asked Him a question, testing Him, ‘Teacher, which is the greatest commandment in the Law?’ And He said to him, “’You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, and with all your soul, and with all your mind. This is the great and first commandment. The second is like it, ‘You shall love your neighbor as yourself.’ Matthew 22:35-39
