Jim and Mary's RV Park, Missoula Montana

September 1, 2011. Jim and Mary's RV Park, Missoula MT.

Well, again I've fallen behind on the blog. We haven't really done anything exciting this past week. We've taken advantage of the shopping opportunities afforded by our proximity to the City of Missoula. They have just about every major retail outlet and box store as well as a nice historic area of the city down by the Clark Fork River.
As promised, I'm posting some pictures of Jim and Mary's RV Park. It was a cloudy day when I took the pictures. We really like this park as it very well maintained and the flower gardens are just beautiful.

Our site, A-1 across from the office.
The trees around our site were so thick that we weren't able to get a signal from both satellites (110 and 119) for our Dish. However, it wasn't a problem as the park provides cable T.V.

Aside from doing some shopping, Paul and I visited the Smoke Jumpers Center here in Missoula. We took the free tour which was very interesting. 

The last few weeks we've been experiencing erratic temperature shifts in our Norcold refrigerator. Some mornings it would read in the upper 20's in the fridge box. The next morning or the next time I checked the remote thermometer, it could be reading as much as the mid to upper 40's. I contacted a local mobile RV repair service recommended by the campground on Monday. However, they weren't available to look at it till late Thursday. So, I did a little research and discovered that the problem was consistent with a bad Thermistor. I picked one up for $25 and installed it. So far, so good, temps are staying in the mid to upper 30's.
Paul continued to have problems with his Ford's turbo hose blowing off but after his second trip to the local Ford dealer we hope the problem is resolved. 
Tomorrow we plan to move closer to Glacier National Park.
