We have power!!!!

We are currently parked in an RV park somewhere in Missouri and are so happy to be plugged into shore power!!! It's amazing how much power you use when you're not hooked up and you soon realize how power needy we really are (water too!!) In an effort to conserve we purchased a dandy little invention called the "wonder wash". You fill it up with 6 Liters of water, toss in some clothing and a little detergent, close the lid and presto!, after hand cranking for about 2 minutes you have clean clothes. Isn't it cute!!!


Josh and I are still learning all the in's and out's of the RV and for some reason have lost power to certain outlets and lighting. We were hoping that this would change once we were hooked up to shore but alas we were wrong. Tomorrow we will try and find a camping world to see if there's an easy fix to our dilemma. I'm sure it's a fuse or something simple but we just can't figure it out at the moment.

Congrats on the power! Glad y'all are ok. Karma will get those motor home wreckers! :)

Glad to hear you reached you power destination. It's exciting to read all your road experiences and can see on in your pictures, you two are having a great time! The next time another RV passes you by, look closely, it just might be us in OUR RV!!! LOL

Hi Kelly and Josh! My boyfriend and I are on a similar journey. We left New York City in September and have been traveling the US in a TT ever since -- we are in our early thirties. Anyway, I love your wonder wash! Where did you get it??? I have to have one! Happy travels and maybe we can meet up on the road sometime...
