Hmm, the voice of experience here? Except you'd be called a letcherous old (I can’t say that here).

Always like to drive the MH but not through highway construction and or rain!



Come on through here Dave, the pollens only an inch deep! Rain should help some!We haven't had any visitors through here in a while, Richards probably getting weak from not eating.


You are sounding like Poor Richards Almanac!

So the story goes:
We were notified that the RV park would be without power from 8 a.m. to about 1 p.m. so we were sitting around waiting for that to happen. Earlier, Earlene got up and preened to be looking good, not that she needs to, (I like to eat) and used the facilities, blow dried her hair and so on. We had our coffee, watched tv and then she plugs in her curling iron and it is not working. I cannot reset the GFI plug.

I break out the manuals and start trouble shooting. All the circuit breakers are on. Still cannot reset. TV, lights, microwave, refrigerator, everything working. More searching. Last evening she washed clothes and dried them. Everything working fine. More manual searching didn't help. Washer and drier on same GFCI circuit so we unplugged them. Still a dead plug receptacle. Time to call Winnebago support,

Walking by the EMS (Electrical Management System) I opened the panel and checked what systems were drawing what.

Hey! The inverter is on!! Darn, we have been without electricity for a couple hours now. Inverter will not run circuit the washer and drier are connected to. Everything else works off the inverter.

Life is good!

I really wish our time was flexible on this journey, Wayne and Earlene!
