Back at the Monacoers Gathering, there were several door prize drawings throughout the week. We’re not the lucky ones, usually, but we happened to be sitting next to the guy who won a gift certificate for re-chroming of a set of mirror arms and bases. He couldn’t use, it, since his motorhome has black mirrors, so he passed the prize on to us!
We were really grateful, since that was one thing on our motorhome that looked pretty bad – the chrome on the bases was pitting and bubbling quite a bit.
Space Coast Plating, owned by one of the Monacoers, is located in Melbourne, Fla., on the Atlantic coast. We made arrangements to bring the mirrors to them on Feb. 29th, and made reservations at a nearby RV Resort in Malabar. If they had a completed set of bases and arms that matched ours, it would be a quick swap, but if they had to re-chrome ours, it could take up to 10 days, so we went ahead and booked our site for 10 days.
It was an easy drive across the state on Highway 70, through Arcadia and Okeechobee, and then we picked up I-95 in Fort Pierce and travelled north to Malabar. We were parked and set up by 2pm!
