Day 13, 14 - Corvallis, OR

Day 13 - Thursday was a very relaxing day. I replaced most of the incandescent running/clearance  lights with amber LEDs (pictured on the left). I still have the two clearance lights on the top front to replace. Probably tomorrow morning. The five lights across the back are red so I picked up some red LEDs as well. I also ordered a backup camera to mount on the back of the trailer. Power for the camera is coming from the middle running light so I’ll change them after the camera arrives. Amazon claims tomorrow afternoon.

Day 14 - This morning, Troubadour stopped by the RV park to visit. We had lunch at a Vietnamese sandwich shop and later, we had dinner with Troubadour and Trobairitz in Salem after getting a tour of their new home. Visiting with them is always wonderful.

  1. Good to see you and Bridget again, always fun seeing you two.

    Downloaded Chrome to comment on your blog, got the wifi working on the computer in the back room and hooked up the light in the garage to the wall switch. Now to download Mojave.

    1. So busy…

      Chrome seems to resolve the authentication problem. Though Safari seems to work fine on the iPad which is what I’m using right now.

  2. The most frequent problem I have had with clearance lights is corrosion. The best solution I've found was replacing the fixture with a good quality sealed LED unit.

    1. I've had several of the sealed units fail. I did use RTV between the lens and the base but, yes, most of the contacts were pretty corroded.
