Thursday, April 26 - Oswego, NY

The good news is the cooling unit for my refrigerator has arrived at Camping World. The bad news is is is going to be a bit longer before I can head out - the first available time block long enough to pull the refrigerator, install the cooling unit & put things back together is Wednesday morning. They now estimate it as a 4 hour job.

Had an interesting thing happen over the rain storm the other day. Looked out at the trailer & the lighting strip I added under the awning was on. Now I know I didn't turn it on so I went out & checked. The switch was in the off position, but filled with water. Enough got inside the switch to short out the contacts.

So, yesterday's project was to pull the upper refrigerator cover (where the switch is mounted) and change it to one that has a waterproof cover. Hope that will do the trick. Unfortunately, with the current weather forecast, I'm going to get the chance to find out - rain is predicted for the next couple of days. On top of that, the overnight temperature is predicted to go down 27°F Friday night. I guess I'll need to plug in the trailer & run my electric heater...
