The DW and I counted our blessings this weekend while camping. It was our 3rd day out and we were well set into our routine. We got up, ate breakfast and took the FurKids out for a walk on the beach. When we returned as she did the dishes I went fishing on the pier about 300 yards away. About 30 mins later my phone rings, when I answer I get "Baby, there is smoke coming from under the sink, something is on fire" I immediately start running and tell her to get out and shut the power off at the pole". Thankfully she said "already done". She has the fuzzheads leashed up and away from the camper by the time I get there. I grab the extinguisher and open the cabinet and get the "oh so recognizable" smell of electrical insulation burning. Luckily no fire because she secured power as quickly as she did. As you can tell there isn't any damage to the camper itself and I already have an apt with Rex & Son's next Friday to replace the switch.
We are just glad it happened while one of us was there, otherwise I'm sure the pictures would be quite different. Luckily the wife and I discuss various emergency situations and actions required.
So I guess the moral of this story is that we all need to ensure EVERYONE that we take camping knows exactly what to do in case of any emergency!!
