Okay so if you have read my other posts you know what a chaos my personal life is, but I wanted this blog to be more than just the sad stories of everyday life. We live in a travel trailer and we started to do something call workamping. I have posted maybe twice about this and while I rant I have mentioned it. But I really wanted to blog about that because it is awesome! Like things suck, but if this goes well it’s gonna be amazing you know?
We have a Jayco, Jayflight 23RB in case you were wondering. It is 23 feet of living space, so like maybe 200sq feet? I don’t know many measurements. Anyway, it is falling apart!
Cam tore the awning because he spent like two hours dragging the trailer all through downtown Seattle, because he was looking for you know what, and then he finally found some and couldn’t wait 30 more seconds to park somewhere safe so he decided to just pull of on the side of this road. And once he was doing done his business, he pulled away and we heard a crack. He hit some tree and caught the branches in the awning and completely tore it. I mean the canvas was torn, the arm things where bent, the cables where cut. We had been in Washington for like two days when that happened. I should have known that was a bad omen.
Okay so that’s how it started. Kinda. Then once we where at our work camp spot, we noticed our hitch was bent. And then we noticed there was a hole under the trailer. So as time went by we kept getting mice inside our trailer. But it’s so wet we can’t really patch it up. Then we started to get mold everywhere. Then our bed broke, so we sleep all slanted. Then something in our bathroom is leaking. We don’t know if it’s the shower head or the faucet or the tub. But then we noticed it does it when it rains a lot too, so we don’t know what it could be but we have all kinds of water damage from that. Then our stove was leaking too?? And the kitchen outlet doesn’t work, and neither does the outlet in our bathroom. And the light in our bedroom is broken too, and the fan over the kitchen doesn’t work either. And then just recently the diverter from the faucet in our shower is being finicky so sometimes we can shower but sometimes we can’t. And our door lock doesn’t work either, it’s like stuck and we have tried to fix it but I think overtime we have made it worse. Oh and we broke our towel rack too. And we lost the cover to our propane tanks.
So that’s whats wrong with our trailer. I may have forgotten some things, but in a nut shell that’s it. I hope once we drive back home, we can get it into the shop and have it looked at or something. We don’t have much time between jobs and I really don’t want to risk loosing the next job!
