More time to explore! BUT--it's going to be in the mid 90's this weekend...phooey! I would say that would be pool time, but when the pool feels like bath water, it's not very refreshing! I used to be a competitive swimmer, so I prefer cooler water to swim in...maybe we'll go find a lake somewhere, or head to the mountains, you never know! Canyon Lake, anyone?
This morning we tried to install our Tire Traker tire pressure monitoring system. What the heck is that and why the heck do we need it, you ask? Well, have you ever seen photos of motor home tires that blew up on the highway or a tow car tire that blew or got punctured? The amount of damage that would be incurred before you'd have a clue there was a problem is HUGE! I've been really worried about our Honda CRV having a tire go flat or run over something..you could go MILES before you might know there was problem, by then the damage to the wheel rim and undercarriage of the car or motorhome would be thousands of dollars for repairs. By having a tire pressure monitoring system, you have a baseline tire pressure on a monitor right on the dash. An alarm goes off if the tire pressure drops below a certain point...There are a couple of them out there, the most well known is probably the Pressure Pro tire system...but it does not have replaceable batteries. When the battery for the sensor dies for that particular system, you have to buy new sensors at fifty bucks a pop. When the battery dies on the Tire Traker system, you can replace just the watch style batteries. At any rate, we researched both of them and decided to go with the Tire Traker system.
