About three years ago while on vacation, I wrote about the wind farm we spotted in Iowa.
We have a new plant in Little Rock (a short distance from the dairy) that makes the blades for windmills. How cool is that!

Lucky Me

Some times my good fortune even surprises me.

We still own our motorhome and it is sitting in the driveway until the time I am willing to sell it. The a/c plastic cover has become brittle over the years and is missing chunks that have broken and blown away. Not a very pretty site. A new cover costs about $125. A new cover would only help the a/c and motorhome cosmetically and I have had a hard time justifying purchasing one.

As you can see in the picture, the cover is held on by 4 studs that protrude through the top and 4 cap nuts and washers secure it.

I found a used one in great shape. No, not "I found one" used that I could buy at a reasonable price but "I found one", period!

It was sitting on the concrete retaining wall that separates our frontage road from the interstate. One had lost it.

I can only guess that the rv had been to the rv dealership (about a mile up the frontage road) and after working on the a/c, they failed to replace the retaining nuts. Someone must have found it after it had blown off and placed it on the retaining wall.

A lot of things had to fall into place for this to happen because these covers are very fragile and just falling from the top of the rv (10ft-13ft) should have destroyed it. Not counting another vehicle could have ran over it.
