Good idea - the bag, rice and circuit board are sitting in the warm sunshine as I write.
But...the saga continues ...
So, with the slide controller issue on hold, I continued with my winterization plans (another topic...)
I turned on the water pump and ran water through the kitchen faucet to make sure that the water lines were purged of air. Having done that, I shut off the faucet...but the water pump kept pumping...slowly. So, I thought, maybe the tank is empty. Checked the gauge and, sure enough, it looked empty. So I filled it.
But the pump just kept on running! No open faucets, no water running inside, no water coming from the low point drains (a previous problem). So I go to look at the pump...and there's water dripping from one of the screw holes which had been used to hold the black panel in place. Not sure what they screwed into - something above the forward back corner of that compartment.
And then I noticed a slow leak coming from the "winterize" valve. When installing the valve, they'd missed the convenient mounting hole and screwed right into the body of the valve.
So...I put a screw back into the valve body...so it's not leaking at the moment. I tried putting a screw up into the ceiling, but that didn't seem to be enough. So I put some sealer on the screw and tried again...but I don't hold out much hope.
I'm supposed to be leaving town with the Solera on Monday, but I'm beginning to think that's not gonna happen!
