Three strikes..... and out?

Recently purchased a 2612WS, took the delivery end of May and have three show stopper issues.
1. Four AM alarm from the CO/Propane sensor, yea that was a eye opening event. The DW bumped the oven burner knob, have installed child proof covers or should I say DW proof covers.
2. Water pump trying to pump air instead of water. Found the water bypass valve in the shower set in a partiall bypass position, yup DW again didn't fully close it.
3. Replaced the GFIC outlets. Packing up to go camping this weekend, found all the 110 volt outlets in the camper are dead. Would appear that DW use of her hair dryer and flat iron have burned out the two GFIC outlets. Off to big box hardware store purchase new GFIC outlets.

So, three strikes and out?

Possibly need new DW??


Just kidding. If we were all OUT after 3 strikes, none of us would be camping ever.

Besides, those aren't strikes.

They're just simple foul balls.

Wow... the only recommendation I can give is make sure you have good insurance.

Fill the "box" up with propane and one spark,... you'll "warm-up" real fast.

Yeah, for me, camping is life amp'd up a bit. More problems but also more joy.

Things will go wrong. Hopefully nothing catastrophic. If not catastrophic hopefully it can be dealt with both swiftly and with a sense of humor.

Thanks for sharing the issues and solutions.

Yeah, I remembered your propane thread last month. I tried to give your DH some cover before you read this...but it was probably to no avail.


Now, truth be told...how many strikes does he have from things like this?

Haha! Well, real truth is he didn't list all the other things he has fixed for me outside of the camper! The list is long

Yes she finds new and creative ways to challenge my ability to fix stuff, but she is a good cook.

Another learning lesson and another adventure... Now you'll have more stories to tell and laugh about in camp sessions to come, especially when you hear what others have done.

I'm for getting everyone on the same page, doing it the same way, check listing yourself the same way so that you don't forget and do these things again... and DW will make sure you don't make that mistake again and Will have useful input because she is a part of the leadership team! see where I'm going?
