Thanks for asking Ted...yes and then no LOL

The first go round seemed to have been a blown .25 miliamp fuse in the Inverter (Freedom 458)...got back to our campground and things still were not running up to par...batteries were not recharging (on shore power) so a lengthy call with Xantrex support was very helpful to determine we were having issues with the charger side of things. Then a surge spiked us and poof...the 300amp main battery fuse let loose. Fortunately I had a Monster surge protector connected to my computers and satellite (HughesNet) dish...because it fried a hole right in the surge protector...but it saved the equipment. So, got the main battery fuse replaced, but a closer look at the transfer switch must have taken a hit too so that is now ordered and will be installed next week. Once in, we will see if the inverter is OK...but can't really know for sure till the new transfer switch is in. So the very helpful repair guy (Dave) at Rec Tech in Holden, ME un-wired both the transfer switch and the inverter till we can get the new switch installed. So for now all is OK running on shorepower. A heck of a last week or so...but we laugh a little because if you're going to be inconvienced....sitting in your rig on the shores of Bar Harbor overlooking the water...walking across the street where they cook you up some fresh lobster 3 lb'ers hasn't been too bad. I had to ride my motorcycle about an hour each way to retrieve some fuse parts etc...and again as I rode looking at all the beautiful trees changing their colors...it isn't that bad after-all! ;-) So next week we'll have all the parts in and hopefully everything (including inverter) will be working as we begin our trek back west for the winter...before we do it all again next year.

A friend of mine said once you go full time in your RV...you're never really going to be the same again. He was right...we love the lifestyle and although we are not retired (we still run our search engine optimization services www.metatagmd.com we say we are retirees in training!

Anyway, thanks again Ted for checking on us and hope you too have miles of smiles!
