About 2pm Jan and I drove to the Buffalo Wild Wings down south on Sunset. We’ve eaten here a couple time before and it’s always been good.

Buffalo Wild Wings Remains

Didn’t get any pics of the ‘Before’, but this is the ‘After’, the remains of 20 wings, (10 each), mine with Mango Habanero Sauce (Their 3rd Hottest) and a side of ‘Blazin’ (Their Hottest). and Jan got hers with Bourbon Honey Mustard and a side of Hot (The 4th Hottest).

Even better than the great wings, it was 1/2 price Wing Day.

On the way home we made a stop at an O’Reilly Auto Parts to get an air filter for our Dodge Dakota truck and then it was back to the rig.

We left the windows open and our Fantastic Vent Fans running when we headed out for lunch at BBW,  but when we got back around 4pm the kitchen fan was no longer running. The lid was still open and would close when I hit the button so I knew it had power.

My first thought was the plunger switch that keeps the fan from running until the lid is open, but normally it acts up by sticking close and not letting the fan start up went you open the lid, not while the fan is running.

I did try using a stick to hit the switch from inside, a ploy that’s worked in the past, but no luck this time.So it looks like tomorrow I’m up on the roof, again,

The last time we were in Las Vegas, in 2015, we discover an abandoned RV park just south of the Vegas Thousand Trails. You can check out our visit at the link above.

It looked like it had been a real nice park in its prime, but the only thing it housed now was a bunch of vagrants living in lean-to and piles of boards.

Blog reader Reg commented this:

We tried to stay at that park about 10 years ago but they only accepted class A less than 10 years old. It soon closed after that. The cost was too high for TTN at that time and the bull dozers leveled it. The car wash next door also went with it, and it had a bay to wash motor homes.

Looks like they got too uppity and too picky.

Now it looks like it’s going to be either high-end apartments or houses. I’ll try to get some photos tomorrow.

I was finally able to park across the road this afternoon when we got back from BWW.

The dolly just to the left of  red trailer was gone so I fit in there. The guy in the rig next to us was hoping we could move tomorrow, in the morning at least, since he has a crew coming in to wash his rig.

So it all worked out.

    I was at TT LV a few months back and the person next to us said they were building housing for the under privileged. Not sure if this is true.

    We had the Fantastic Fan in our 2006 Winnebago Tour to fail in the same way as you describe your fan failure. Our problem turned out to be the fan control board. We had the board replaced to return the fan to working order, using our extended warranty plan that we purchased with the motorhome. Good luck at keeping the cost down. That fan sure does a fantastic job in RV’s.

    All I can say is my head is singing that old song–Up on the Roof.

    We were at Arizona Charlie’s on the other side of the construction and the office girls said the apartments are low income housing. They have already built an elementary school in the rear that is open.

    This not related to todays post, but in the past you have mentioned some sort of tool to fix the closer valve? on the toilet.

    We are having an issue with ours starting to close real slow and not always sealing properly, we don’t need to have a flood.

    our local RV place gave us a bottle to condition the gasket, but it worked for a few days but is not doing so good now.
