[The river is |frustratedtired & frustrated]

I've finally found a company that looks like it can anchor the trailer correctly. The guy will call me back with an estimate.

I also found a store that has the right equipment to recharge the deep-cycle battery. Unfortunately I also learned that deep-cycle batteries need to be kept charged and that leaving them discharged for as little as 24 hours can damage them. The charge will only cost $5.00, so I'm going to get it done and see how it goes. It takes a while, so I won't get the battery back until tomorrow. Keep your fingers crossed that it works.

Fingers crossed for you. Cross your fingers for me that I bought the right kind of fish for my Italian friend who's staying this weekend, will be cooking for us, and finally trusted me to do the shopping...

Look ahead to when the wrinkles will ironed out and everything will be nice. Because everything WILL be nice. Just keep focused and move forward. It's going to be so nice. If you need help packing or anything, let me know at least 21 days ahead so I can get a cheaper fare. I want to come back!

Thanks. The fishing expedition went well, but ye gods fresh quality fish is expensive!

OTOH, what Karen did to it was AMAZING.

We ate too much, and we aren't used to that much rich food...it was butter, butter, all the way.

Good luck with the trailer anchoring. Are you going with over the roof straps? That's considered the best for potential high wind areas as I recall. At least for regular trailer houses.

Yes, keep those batteries within certain discharge limits or trouble may follow. Also with lead-acids you may need occasional "equalizing" charges. If you can get information from the battery company on how best to maintain their batteries, I'd think that would be the best advice to follow.
