Updates from AZ, and storing the RV.
If you have been following along with our travels, you know we have been staying at Bens folk’s house near Phoenix Arizona. I am currently 26 weeks pregnant, and we have been getting the RV ready for storage while we are in Utah for the next few months.
As an update, it really has been nice to stay at a house. The Beck’s have a lot of room so we can bring stuff in to organize and sort so we know what to leave, and what to bring up to Utah. It’s been awesome having such a large fridge and counter space to cook! It’s also been nice to have so many stores close by like Target, or for food like Rudy’s. We missed BBQ real bad!
We super lucked out and made a connection that will let us park our RV on their gated property. There really are some super nice and generous people here in AZ!
As we researched how to store the RV, we decided it would be best to take it to an actual RV park overnight so we could use the 50 amp electricity, as well as their water and not worry about flipping any breakers or using someone else’s water supply. You would think we would be over RV parks by now! However, it just made sense.
So on Friday, we drove the RV to a run-down park and started working!
We first went through all the drawers and “dejunked” whatever we didn’t want to bring back to Texas with us, then vacuumed and wiped everything down. After a deep clean with the kitchen and bathroom, we sterilized anything fabric, then swept and mopped the floors. It was a disaster zone for a while but we made it work.
If you look close, you can see our list of “to-dos” on the mirror.
We came back on Saturday morning to complete some finishing touches and clean the tanks for storage. This place has never felt so clean!
It was actually fun to be back in the RV with Benjamin and work the day away. We made some good memories with this beast and will miss it. It took care of us for 16 months and was our first home.
After everything was checked off our list, we pulled in the slide-out and headed back to store for the Arizona winter.
This was a major project to tackle before heading up to Utah and I am glad we got it done. See you in April Allegro Bae!
