Actually they’re called document storage tubes, but what’s in a name.
Necessity drove me to discover these adjustable wonders.
I needed a safe place to store some unwieldy satellite dish parts. Mmmmmm . . . what to do?
A Google search of “plastic storage tube” yielded several different sizes — both length & diameter — of adjustable tubes.
And my large tube (7-inch diameter) fit the bill for unwieldy satellite parts storage . . .
If you’ve been following along, then you know we were having issues with one of our air conditioners (see Hot Springs, Hot RV from June 6).
Our AC was cycling on an off like clockwork — 6 minutes on, 6 minutes off, over and over. However, it recently became worse, cooling for 3 minutes, but then blowing warm air for 3. Temperatures in June have been in the low 100s or high 90s. Our single AC unit couldn’t keep up.
So enough was enough. We had a local shop order a new AC and install it. A few hours after the installation, we were in coolness again.
We moved to a new campsite just a few doors (make that “driveways”) away from us.
I don’t know why we didn’t move earlier. Our new home is heaven — particularly dog heaven as it has a lawn so Flirt can roll on her back to her heart’s content.
As you can see, we’re right under a couple of trees. It took some fine driving (kudos, Jan) to wedge our way between the two trees . . .
When we look out our windows now, we see lawn and trees, but I think the best view is from our shower’s skylight . . .
