Mike, the RV Repair Man

Aloha Everyone,

We had problem with the under-carriage of Honu. J.J. had cleverly devised a substitution until we could have it professionally repaired. (More on J.J.'s repair technique later).

Mike, the RV Repairman came over to work on Honu this morning.

After assessing the condition, Mike went away to have the replacement bracket re-fabricated at a welding shop and skillfully completed the job.

Mike's work place was the cement floor where Honu is parked. J.J. let Mike use the rubberized rug which we use for our kitchen area.

Mike's tools he needed to work on Honu fit within this tool box he brought out from his truck, of course the size is deceiving. When I tried to move it to take a better photo, its weight prevented me from even pushing it a little.  Mike laughed and said it probably weighs 20 pounds.

Here is what J.J. had used to temporarily mitigate the problem -- his shoe string. Mike voiced his surprise and told us that we are lucky that our water tank did not break.

We count our blessings and thankful for Mike's help.

Aloha -- Cathi
