Don’t Underestimate Repair Times for your Travel Trailer

On the way back from the coast, the bottom panel of the trailer twisted out from the side of the trailer like a leg broken in 10 places from the hip down.  When we got home, my husband ripped it off, and towed the damaged trailer into the repair shop.  They know us on a first name basis there now.

When you have a trailer, you sometimes forget what’s in the trailer, and what’s in your cabinet in the house.  It’s not a problem if the trailer is right outside in the door.  

See, there it is across the lawn.  It stores lots of goodies I forget about.

When I discovered that my hair dryer wasn’t in my bathroom drawer, I knew it was in the trailer, and the trailer was gone.  I didn’t panic because I figured it would be a simple in and out, and I’d have the dryer back in a couple of days.  It seems I underestimated by about six weeks.  My loss was an opportunity to enjoy going natural in the beautiful sunny mornings.  I go outside with my wet golden locks, and start brushing.

As I sit and brush, I have plenty of time to look around.  Sunlight sparkles illuminating a vast number of spider webs in the eves, under the chairs and table, and in the garage door windows.  They keep calling me until I quit brushing, and pick up my web-buster.

The moral of this story.  Don’t leave your hair dryer in your trailer if you hate dusting cobwebs.

  1. Great post MVBFM. The sun is good for drying, frizzling and bleaching your hair……and it’s free ! Throw the drier ! 😉 Ralph xox ❤

  2. Sorry about those cobwebs, but it sounds like you were reasonably okay with your hair. When I don’t do my hair prep ritual I can look like a deranged, homeless old hippie inviting wrens to nest.

    • That’s why I always use my curling iron. I used to have straight limp hair, which was bad enough. I had to curl it just to give it some body. Now my hair wants to curl, almost in ringlets if I don’t STRAIGHTEN it! Go figure. Either way, It needs work! 🙂

  3. I wish I’d known. I’ve had to give away three hairdriers this past week. Now I only have one here, and two in Florida, although my daughter has just told me she has a brand new one she brought back from Canada, which doesn’t work here, so I’m also getting that. With my glut of hairdriers, I’ll never need a web buster, so the spiders can relax. 🙂

    • Whew! I don’t want my spiders to relax. I let them spin for a while to gather their share of nasty little flying insects, then I wipe them away. I’d rather have spiders than mosquitos. 🙂

  4. Ah, the solution , I think is to get one for the trailer and keep one in the house! But then you wouldn’t have had the chance to sweep the cobwebs.

    • haha They would probably find some other way of talking to me. Maybe a big daddy longlegs would swing like Tarzan into my face as I come out the front door or something! 🙂
