Getting ready for Key West!

We made reservations for a month in Key West several weeks ago.  We will be staying at Trumbo Point Family Camp on the USCG/Navy base, this will be our third winter season there.    We prefer Trumbo over Sigsbee on Dredgers Key because it is a shorter walk to Old Town which makes it nice for us.  We usually ride our bikes to get around, Key West is very bike friendly and it's much easier to park a bike than a car.

Our RV has been in the shop having some issues taken care of, seems to be very common for many RV'ers sadly.  This last shop visit we finally had the Dometic 3 way refrigerator replaced, the propane regulator replaced and the sofa/bed worked on.

I picked up our RV Thursday and visited the Mercedes dealer Friday to have the engine oil changed.  After that was completed I drove home so I can prepare the RV for leaving the following Friday.  I changed to oil in the propane generator and filled the freshwater system with a bleach/water ratio to sanitize the freshwater system.  I have a 30 gallon freshwater tank, so that is 1/2 cup of bleach in a full tank.

Now we will be giving the RV a complete cleaning inside and out prior to loading it up for our trip.

Friday will be here soon!
