Monday, January 2 – The Verizon installation man arrived as scheduled this afternoon to install a satellite dish on our covered RV pad. Due to the fact that we are parked under a roof for the first time, our automatic roof satellite dish will not connect to the signal, so we have to get a dish mounted on the shelter.

Let me tell you, if you are ever in a similar situation, don't try to explain to your satellite provider that you live full-time in an RV and you need a “temporary” dish installed. They just can't fathom that situation....LOL.  We must have been passed between a half dozen different operators before we gave up. On advice of our new landlord, we finally called back and just told them we moved and need a dish installed on our new place.

They were so happy to have us as a customer in our new location, they easily set an appointment for an installer to attach the new dish at no charge. Our landlord wanted to keep the old Dish Network satellite for future renters, so he now has two dishes on the RV shelter, a Dish Network and a DirectTV Network dish. Future renters just need to connect the TV wire to which ever satellite service they need.


It was then time to sit back and watch the BCS Bowl games for the remainder of the day. We did pry ourselves out of our chairs for an evening walk around the park. We are enjoying nice weather with highs in the upper 70's and lows in the 50's. The orange, lime, lemon and grapefruit trees are doing awesome. They taste as good as they look!


Thanks for stopping by. Hope to see ya'll back real soon. Have a great day!
