I called Disney and they walked to the site and said it was not there. The new people in that site said they did not see it when they pulled in.

I hope whoever has it now and decided not to turn in into lost and found really needed it more that I do.

I think I might replace it with the internal hard wired unit.
That was an expensive lesson to learn.

Oh man, that stinks. Let us know if you need help with the install on the new hard wired version.

WoW!! That sux. I know I'd do the same so my routine is to shut the breaker off and pull the EMS. I carry it and drag the anaconda to the past through and then unhook the cord from the 5er as that end goes on the reel 1st. As we change units so often, I prefer the portable.

Left a campfire grill at Lake of the Arbuckles a couple of weeks ago. Kind of torqued me off that I did that.

Son and I traveling to Montana, stopped at Bozeman for breakfast then hit the road. 6hrs later we were camping at Rock Creek and son realized he'd left his Diabetic kit on the table at the VI in Bozeman. Drove back to interstate...(only place to get cell service) found the number, called the restaurant and spoke with manager. A server cleaning the table after we left saw the kit, looked inside, realized it was important and locked in the managers office. Luckily I had the foresight to pack his extra kit and Insulin, so the manager said he'd keep it locked up until we came back that way. We stopped in 4 days later and the manager on duty knew immediately what we came for and ran and got it for us. I sent a very lengthy letter to the corporate HQ praising the employees at that particular establishment.

Your unfortunate experience is why I started with a hard wire - I knew I would leave it somewhere... It was a bit of a pita to install - you need to be a bit of a contortionist!

Sorry to hear that, I've done stuff like that before. I'm currently working on a checklist so it won't happen again.

Last year while hooking up I tied my dog to the picnic table so she wouldn't get run over. Yep, I forgot Her! She was waiting patiently when I returned. At least I did leave her some water.

Sadie was a Lasha Apso mix, a rescue that someone tied to a post in New Orleans after Hurricane Katrina. She passed on this spring, a valued (and forgiving!) family member. We were fortunate to have her in our life. She will forever be missed.

Thank god you didn't tie her to the bumper. "Poor thing, probably kept up for a mile or two." ( Cop to Chevy Chase...NL Vacation.)

I could understand leaving your wife or kid but not your dog. Mercy Man
