Holding My Breath
Long story short, while setting up Sunday a downpour hit. Finished blocking but hadn't set down stablizers, fortunately. Went inside and an hour later the soft ground moved a tad and the jack slipped off the block. Nose down she went. Somehow with the help of my trusty floor jack I got the coupler up out of the mud and eventually had her level again. But with stack of wood, the jack and the electric jack I felt the need for assistance.
A call to Coach Net Sunday night requesting help Monday was handled so well I thought I was talking to Mom. Sunday I got a call, as promised, at 7:30 a.m., was put on the phone with the tow truck driver and 45 minutes later he arrived, from a town 26 miles away. As always, having the proper tools made it a five minute job.
I'm now stable but crossing my fingers that there is no hidden damage to frame or slides. It may have been no worse to the trailer than hitting a bad chuck hole. We have no deadline, so I'll complete this leg of our trip before breaking down camp. But bringing in the slides will be one of the first things we do rather than the last before disconnecting shore power. :fingerscross:
