Same here...we just got 2 feet of snow but, thankfully, the camper is parked about 5 miles away so I don't have to see it!!

Hang in there, Rocky, spring will come soon!!!

Gave her a bath! Bought the Kobalt rail system like Vizjedi. I liked that it is adjustable & the hangers can be easily changed.

Finally got the okay from insurance to fix TT. Dealer said it will take another 3 to 4 weeks for parts.

Took my AC cover off and cleaned it and looked at how I'm going to install the hard start capacitor and fan time delay. UPS will deliver tomorrow. If it doesn't rain, I'll see install and post some test results.

I think I might know what a hard start capacitor does but could you explain it a little further? I do a lot of dry camping with a generator so is that something I should consider installing?

The hard start capacitor such as the Supco SPP6 is a $10 + - mod that installs in parallel with the current running capacitor. It helps the generator and shore power start the compressor by releasing the stored power in the capacitor when the compressor starts. It's popular with those of us that have smaller generators that need all the help they can get. It's a plug in that very easy to install.

The time delay provide a few seconds delay on the fan until the generator starts the compressor. It just gives you the best shot at getting the AC running with a smaller generator.

I love hearing people on my roof. It means my house is being washed.
