RV Tasks at the SKP Park - SKP

Thursday - Today was a productive day. I helped Dom replace his awning fabric and install a window awning on his RV. It didn't take too long to get it done considering we were following directions from YouTube. At least for the awning fabric.

Friday - The project of the day was getting an additional house battery installed. Eventually, I want to upgrade our inverter as the one we currently have is an older modified sine wave model. The square wave output is hard on electronics and appliances. The model I want to replace it with requires up to 300amps DC and two batteries we had are unable to provide that much current.

Saturday - I attended the local ham radio club meeting this morning. I got a ride from one of the other members who lives here in the park. After the meeting, we stopped at Dziuk's meat market in Castroville. I picked up a maple-blueberry pork sausage at the recommendation of another customer. This evening, I cooked it up on the Blackstone along with cabbage. I used a mild sweet-sour sauce and served it over broken-up linguine. It was delicious. The sausage definitely had a "breakfast" feel to it. 

I returned from Castroville in time to participate in the late morning test session. After the session, I charged up the laptop. This is the only time I plugged it in this week. I'm still amazed at how long the battery lasts on this laptop.

Sunday - Todays project was reinstalling the shore power cord reel. I had cleaned up the contacts a while back and it should be good to go for now. I removed the temporary twist-lock outlet for now and will re-install it later if needed. I may work on a way to have both options. 

Here, I’m sitting in the cell phone parking lot at the San Antonio airport. Bridget is flying back from a short visit to winter…
