LOL, ohhhhh, now I see!

Dadgumed Dometic went blank yesterday about 2-hours into our 3-day camping trip. I figure it's the blasted magic card again.

BTW, dry-ice works really well. I have frozen tea, cokes and sandwich meat!

Never a dull moment!

Something about the fumes are absorbed by the food. I don't recall the reasoning, just the warning, so none of use did it. Maybe it's no big deal, just thought you should know.

A good warning note.

Dry-ice is essentially frozen carbon-dioxide, which is what we exhale, so it's something that isn't 'toxic' per se but nonetheless isn't breathable.
We were in W-Mart awhile back and I spotted a dry-ice display/cooler and went over to check prices, etc. It had a large foam pad under the top lid and over the dry-ice itself so I lifted it up to see the chunks. When I flopped it back down, the movement disturbed the layer of CO2 gas that was laying in there, and it wafted up just as I was taking a breath.... Weird feeling to be breathing but not getting any effect from it.

Thanks for the tips on the dry ice. Don't think we suffered any damage other than frozen food.

On a good note, I found and repaired the fault. TOWMBO kept saying "It must be a fuse", but I kept dreading using small tools to access the magic electronics board. I finally started unplugging wires, removing screws and poking and prodding the ice-maker valve aside. A 3-amp fuse was the problem. I figured I'd save myself some trouble and replaced it with a 30 amp fuse. That should stop it from blowing!
