Small Discoveries

We’re currently sitting at the Dam West campground at Carlyle Lake in site 20. The high temperature yesterday was 89 degrees so I decided to turn both A/C units on. Wow, having a 2nd A/C sure does make a difference. I really like the fact that the A/C’s are on separate thermostats.

Our previous Wildcat had a 12v ceiling fan, I discovered yesterday that our ceiling fan is a 120v appliance. I guess I should have read the manual. Not a big deal since we rarely boondock anymore. Our previous Wildcat had a 40 gallon fresh water tank, I discovered yesterday that it takes a lot longer to fill the 66 gallon water tank on our Silverback. I was getting a bit worried about where all the water was going and then finally water began to come out of the overflow.

I did some tree trimming for the COE yesterday. Backing into our site there were some small tree branches that would rub on the roof. NOPE! No way I’m letting anything touch the roof on my brand spanking new fifth wheel. I climbed up on the top of the Silverback and trimmed the offending branches…no charge COE.

I would think the 12v ceiling fan would be a plus vs. the 120v fan.

The Fantastic fan is 12V and will move more air that the 120V ceiling fan. Just don't forget to crack open a window when using the fantastic fan in exhaust mode.
