1st trip accomplished
We went to Sandbanks Provincial Park Lake Ontario, which is the closest to the ocean we have around here, beautiful place, great beaches and clear water (thanks to some pesky zebra mussels).
When we first arrived to the our campsite, we looked at it in dread ,we had one spot to setup the trailer at, trees all around it, our first mission was to back the sucker up between 6 tall trees. TV is a Dodge ram megacab so huge long with trailer behind, and we had to do this with spectators, hubby got all snappy again but i find this funny. After some manuvering it was backed in place but then the awning was not able to fully extend, whatever leveled it and we are parked.
Went to the beach and relaxed watching the kids play in the sand, biked, did some fishing and exploring.
Second nite into trip we noticed sound coming from back of fridge outside (a ticking noise) removed panel and looked to see for anything, no sparking, checked fuse panel, turned the fridge on and off, noise still came back and found that the bathroom GFI was tripped, reset it and still the noise was there, stopped a while later, went to bed, woke up and fou nd the fridge had crapped out. Looked in the daytime and saw that the circuit board panel was off and saw two fuses we had one of the same 3 amp so switched it to new tried the fridge, still nothing, went to town and got the second fuse the 5 amp, tried that still no fridge called dealer and he said the ticking noise we heard was the pilot trying to light when the GFI tripped, b/c it tried to lite so many times it finally kicked the bucket. He suggested plugging it directly with extension to park electric, did that still not working. Gave up and bought ice.
When we picked it up I asked if the Dometic recall was done (when i went to the website and entered the sin # it is affected, they never did give me proof, they said they assumed it had been done, i am going to have them look at it and hopefully this is covered under the recall.
One important thing we did forget to bring was gloves for the dump station, again i laughed at hubby trying desperately not to get dirty, i did help too and handed over hoses, gotta laugh or i might have puked. Two pairs of gloves would be very handy. We had rented the movie RV (robin williams) which is hilarious, if you haven't seen it get it, you rvers will appreciate it.
All in all it was a super trip, great weather, and a wonderful way to end out summer holidays.
