CJ’s RV Repair

Last time we dumped and returned to our spot out here in the desert, we rolled out the slides and I found a piece of shredded wood on a paper backing.  What the heck??? A look under the slide showed that the bottom of the slide was being eaten up by the center slide roller.

Our friend, Marty, suggested we make an appointment with CJ’s RV Repair.  It is an independent repair shop that is recommend by many here in Yuma. So an appointment was made and we packed up early Monday, amidst strong, cold winds, and took the rig to town.

After the owner and a couple of techs inspected the slide and inside beneath the kitchen drawers, a solution was determined.  Happily, it wasn’t anything serious.  Just the weight of the slide and it being carried mostly by the center roller.  They fashioned a metal plate for the roller to move across and we were good to go. 

We went ahead back to the desert and set up the rig and then returned to Yuma to do some shopping.  But first, lunch was in order.  We previously ate at Hometown Buffet and was pretty disappointed.  Last week we tried Golden Corral and found it pretty good, but the food is so predictable…I do love their crab salad a lot though.  So this week we took the advise of Karen Bennett and went to Eats Chinese Buffet.  Oh, my goodness, was it good….very, very good!!! The second best we’ve ever been to (the first is the Chinese Buffet in Brooksville, FL). 

At Eats the hot food was hot and the cold food was really cold…which you don’t always find.  They also had a separate sushi bar with a sushi chef making the sushi right there.  There wasn’t any raw fish sushi though. What they had were imitation crab with avocado and the sticky rice, some with avocado and salmon, etc. Very appetizing and delicious.  I’m staying away from meat but I found a lot of choices like shrimp, mussels, steamed salmon and tons of veggies….I was happy.  Jim said what he had was very, very good.  We’ll definitely be going back.

Marty came back from The Slabs today and will be staying around for a while.  We kind of do our own thing during the day but get together for happy hour each day, then retreat to our rigs for the evening.  It’s really nice because we have our own time, but have company if we want it during the day.  We do take road trips together and enjoy each other’s companionship.


It’s been unusually cold the last few days.   Suppose to be in the 70s with lows in the 40s. What we’re getting is highs in mid-60s and lows in low 30s.  And the wind, oh my goodness, have we been getting the wind!!!  Suppose to be the same till next week. UGH!!!!

Oops, time to get the oatmeal cookies out of the oven.  Remember, you are loved.


  1. OOOH! Hot Oatmeal cookies, just makes my mouth water thinking about them!!!!

  2. So proud of you for sticking with your veggie choices...we need to get back to more of that. We love seafood salad as quick lunch choice. Will gladly trade you temps...high of 47 yesterday and lows in 20's at night. Not liking it !!
