Would Ja Believe???????

I still have no cable. This morning, opening our eyes after a picture-perfect evening and some needed sleep after the 488 mile Wednesday, we had a fine breakfast, did some walking about the Fancy Gap KOA & then began to load up. For us that involves hitting the button to retract our slide (kitchen and living room), disconnecting water and electric (usually do not connect sewer unless staying more than a night, or after three days when tanks are filling up), and then lowering the leveling jacks. All went well.

Then I jumped inside and found we had no 12 volt house system. Lights, refer, etc. were dark. We have three systems....."Shore" power when we are plugged in at a camp site; our generator, used for mostly the AC; and, down-the-road power from a deep-cycle battery system which keeps things humming without the generator or shore power. Today it was a no go.

A quick look showed no fuses blown in the three fuse boxes on board.

Generator quickly brought back power (it was a cool morning so all we were doing is trying to keep the refrigerator going! has already dropped its gas option leaving 12 volt and 110v....that will all be addressed in our next visit to Lazydays RV using our warranty!)

Tomorrow morning a local repair guy is due in to get the problem with the 12 volt fixed. it is almost assuredly a major fuse close by the deep-cycle battery system.

Thus we spent the day finding local places to get this repaired, but they all failed us.

Now, following two Coronas w/lime and salt, and a dip in the cold pool at our current location, Natural Bridge, VA KOA, I am refreshed and relaxed.

BUT...No cable for my camera!

Oh well, there is tomorrow after the repairman leaves. Then we are doing the N. 100 or so miles of the Blue Ridge Parkway in "Sideroad Suzie", our "Toad"....a little tag along vehicle.

By tomorrow night I'll have lots of pics and stories to tell.

Stay Tuned folks!
