October 26 – We must be excited for warmer weather, since we got an early start this morning from Idaho Falls, by early I am talking 8 AM!
We have another long day of driving, as Mesquite, NV is our overnight stop!
Every year driving through Salt Lake City is a challenge. It is always interesting to see what obstacle course they have come up on the I15 as they seem to always be doing construction. This year they did swerve lanes……… multiple swerve lanes!
If you look up ahead you will see these swerve lanes, yes it’s exactly as if you had to swerve to miss something on the road.
Now I’m talking 5 lanes of traffic, all doing 100 +km/hr or 62 mph and there were several of these along the way! Congratulations Salt Lake City, you always make the trip through exciting for us!
We have a video we will upload later with our drive through the mountains from St. George to Mesquite, NV. (Once I figure out how to do it 😉)

This past summer we had an unexpected visitor move into our Rv! We got the surprise one morning when we open up our cutlery drawer and surprise, something left us a turd!!
Yes, you guessed it, a fricken mouse!!
Grrr, now everything has to be completely cleaned and sanitized. These things creep me right out! Ok truth be told, I am scared shitless of them. Yes I know they are smaller than me, but nope not happening. I will scream like a little school girl, and I am not afraid to admit it.
Any plans Myron had that day were now put on the hold, as he now was on a search and destroy mission!
Aha, a section of our underbelly had come lose and allowed for a perfect entry point for the mouse to get in.
With traps set, it didn’t take long and snap…….. we caught the bugger!!!
We always knew it wasn’t a matter of if we would get a mouse, but a matter of when! We thought we had mouse proof our rig, but sometimes they just get in!
Not wanting them to ever get near our cutlery again. Myron came up with these sweet drawer covers.
He already had this clear heavy plastic material similiar to Lexan in his mobile shop, so he figured it would work perfect for the job.
Strong enough to hold my glass of wine!!
He used Velcro to temporarily hold them securely in place until we find the right fasteners.
The Charge Wizard constantly monitors battery voltage and battery usage then selects one of the following four operating modes to properly charge and maintain the batteries. Since we mostly boondock (Dry Camping), we are able to charge our batteries up faster with the generator on those cloudy days.
to access the converter we had to removed the electrical panel,
then remove the kitchen drawers on the other side of the cabinet.
Not the easiest spot to get to in the Cougar 337FLS, this took team work.
Out with the old, and in with the new!
It also comes with a remote pendant that we can manually control the charger.
