Some of you know we are/were waiting for the wheels to get here to replace the ones on the 5er.

They arrived today as planned.  The time shown says 12:25AM but in fact it was 12:25PM when Big O received them.

The decision was made to stay here another day and roll to Big O in the morning in order to get an early start and get to a boondock long before dark tomorrow.image
Wheels have been received.

The real story is about where I got them.  You can read about the search and locating them on a few posts back.  I was familiar with the supplier from past sales efforts but had yet to actually do any business with them as a customer.  They were not top of mind but after a few Google searches on my phone they popped up.  The company is ETrailer.


ETrailer is a family owned business based in St. Charles County, MO.  They are a fairly large distributor of all kinds of Trailer and Towing parts as well as camping/RV equipment offering tow bars, hitches, brake controllers to Maxx Air vent covers, propane grills, shower curtains & rods, back packs and vehicle tents.  Just about anything you need for your RVing lifestyle.image

So check ‘em out, not only will you find a wide assortment of stuff, you will be dealing with a great company that actually cares about every order and making sure you are happy with your purchase.  Oh, I almost forgot, there a lot of videos on hitches and other parts on You Tube from ETrailer too.  In lots of cases you can actually see it in action or learn important details of a product before you buy.

Like I say, check ‘em out, you’ll be glad you did.

Also, I’m glad to say we are finally clearing the air!

I bet there are more than a few folks out there that can relate to this:  I wake in the morning a little congested.  Actually a little bit more than a little.  Here in the southwest there is a lot of dust and at certain times of the year pollen adds to the problem.

I mentioned the flea market we went to the other day.  An item there caught our eye but it sounded like SNAKE OIL.  I believe everyone my age should remember the term snake oil.

For those that may not be familiar with the term: Snake oil is an expression that originally referred to fraudulent health products or unproven medicine but has come to refer to any product with questionable or unverifiable quality or benefit.  It is interesting that we found this item way out here in Yuma since there was a rich  history of Snake Oil Salesmen here in the old wild west.

I have never quickly bought into the far out claims made by purveyors of home remedies or VODOO medicine.  Buuuut,, we went back and bought one.image

I’m sure if those guys from the old west were around today hawking their stuff most of us would have a somewhat direct question for them regarding many of  their claims.  The language would likely not include anything about SNAKE OIL.  It probably would be more along the lines of something like this:image

But in this case, there does seem to be something to the claims.  Essentially it is purported that based on Positive and Negative charges the salt lamp cleans the air!!!  Sounds like a battle between good and evil to me but I transgress.

I also know the WIKI says there is no evidence of health benefits, bla, bla, bla.  What motivated us is that we heard first hand from some folks who have them and said they work!!  There are a huge number of reviews that also are positive.

So the cost was only $25.oo and it uses such a small lamp (15 watt) that we can even use it while boondocking if it really works and we want to.  Amazon has one with a dimmer switch so the wattage can be dialed down even further.

For what it is worth, it does seem to be working.  I wake much less congested in the last couple of days.  It’s refreshing.

If you are the least bit interested, here are some Amazon links.
