I got Ramona settled but I do have a problem I noticed when I stopped for gas a plastic tubing was hanging underneath the door step..I tied it up and stopped at a service place where a mechanic looked at it got underneath and told me it was just the plastic covering for the wire for the electric door step and he got a couple of those ties and strapped them all together and off I went.  I thought everything was OK till I got to the RV park and filled up my water tank like I always do and as soon as I turned on the water pump water came spewing out of the nozzle outside where I fill up the tank…I have no idea if the two problems are connected but will have to try and find someone in town to help me out…..anyway…


Took Bonita off and went into town and here we go!!!!!!!

It is hard to guess anything about the water problem... It sounds like the tank is being pressurized somehow. Is there still a problem after you put the cap back on where you fill the tank? I can't imagine there being a connection with the stair wires but the general rule when something goes wrong is to look at what you did last.

If you have not already, try a can of Bush's beans from the USA. I love beans and think Bush's has the edge on Heinz.
