Trip meter- gathering dust
Last Monday the weather broke and we got an opportunity to get out and visit the USS Lexington, an aircraft carrier tied up in Corpus Christi bay about 27 miles south of here.
After 3 hours of touring we felt we had seen enough, and as we were heading back we wanted to take a look at the working harbor, the entrance to which begins here at the high graceful arch of the Corpus Christi Harbor Bridge.
We had a pretty good storm pass through yesterday evening and this morning, dropping around 3" of rain here in the park, and sparking some lightning and thunder. We've had partly cloudy skies this afternoon and it's 62 degrees- not too bad by comparison with the rest of the country!
We woke up this morning to find that our refrigerator had lost power sometime in the night. The breakers and fuses all checked out so I opened up the access panel on the outside and right away I noticed that the safety shut-off module that we had installed under the latest recall was displaying a red LED light I hadn't noticed before. A web search informed me that the red light has three modes- off= normal operation, flashing= over-temp (shuts off refer), and steady on= module failure (shuts off refer). In desperation I re-routed the power around the module and over to the circuit board- and Voila! the refrigerator started back up.
While I'm out talking to the manager about local repair shops, he mentions that my neighbor in the Safari motorhome just had a repair service out to fix the same problem on his motorhome. They did for him what I had done- and said wait for it to dry out- try plugging it in again.
Now Joan and I are out for a walk and see three acquaintances huddled around yet another motorhome refer access- this coach is a Holiday Rambler about 20 spaces away from ours. We share our experiences with them and show them how to bypass, and their refer starts working.
Hmmm- think Norcold has a problem with their fix?
This really is the Life!
