Hi Lindsay, hope today finds you feeling more cheerful and positive. I can't offer anything practical but suggest you get yourself to a meet as soon as you can. You'll be offered so much support and help there. Good luck.
Good thinking Lindsay, the Hereford meet is well attended and you will definitely get swamped with offers of help from the rest of the reprobates present.
This forum is something special when it comes to assistance. Two members, couple of years ago, even made the trip to Greece to assist in the recovery of a van and successfully nursed it home. Carol has had help after an accident in France and the instances of the WC ''Pony Express'' getting things moved around the country, and in the case of some refillable Gas bottle I sold, across the Irish Sea.
Get it watertight and try to make your way to Hereford and you will receive help with your problems. Oh and a crash course in liver destruction.
There are some good videos on you tube showing how to use them and what they can be used for,
In fact when you have finished watching, you will wonder how you have got this far in life without one and spend the next fortnight prodding things to see how they work,
Lindsay, when people have lost a dog and someone says "are you going to get another one" I usually want to slap them hard and say it wasn't a **** washing machine that packed in. But in your circumstances, since your plans were made with your dog as such an integral part, do you think maybe it would help? Only you will know if you are ready, some people feel sooner; others later but having another being to focus on might help. Sorry if I just became "that person".
It's really frustrating when one thing after another goes wrong: you are playing whack-a-rat with the problems and it feels you will never win. But if you fix things properly, there really will come a time when you realise that nothing went wrong for ages!
Fix the leak ASAP. Find out where the leak actually is (may not be where you thought) and sort it - NOT with silicone sealant: that never works in the long run.
After that, try to prioritise the other issues and if you can, sort each one out properly rather than patching and bodging - unless you like fixing things over and over again!
By the time you have everything working right, you will have developed expertise in so many areas that future issues won't really be problems.
