Day 12 - Almost But Not Quite

Just about everything on the list was addressed. The water tank was filled and license plates installed. The refrigerator doors closed tightly. A new air mattresses pump was sitting on the couch. The awning switch was replaced resolving the issue of the awning not staying in place. The door awning arms were cleaned and lubed. I had even hauled my stuff and set up the RV gps and phone holder/charger in the cockpit. But when I checked the temperature of the refrigerator and freezer, it was obvious that it wasn’t working. The propane flame was lit but it wasn’t getting cold enough. The freezer was around 50°F and the refrigerator was around 80°F.

A new cooling unit is being ordered which is basically most of the refrigerator. Around $1600 so we will essentially getting a new refrigerator. They found the part in Amish country and are arranging for expedited shipping. I asked them to please test the washer/dryer and the convection microwave since they have the time. And here is another drone video courtesy of Lori.

Glad you got enough time and patience to wait it out, Richard.

A huge thanks to Chris & Lori for their hospitality. I had made jokes about taking my time on the way back to OR but this delay was unplanned for...

I think you now know how I felt when I had to sponge off you guys in Anchorage while awaiting parts..... :)

New fridge for a few days of waiting, might be worth it?

An almost new fridge is a good thing. I thought that it would be the most likely thing to fail.
