By golly, Ed and Jackie, I’d call it “one of those OH NO moments” that ended well.
Yikes, comes to mind.
Glad all is well, and in short order (big sigh).

That 11:11 thing, me thinks it happens on digital clocks. Since there's no 00:00 when the batteries die they fail to the other binary 11:11. What else could it be????

I use to not bother adjusting my car & truck clocks when daylights saving changed in the fall. Just subtracted one hour until spring when all was good again. It drove DW crazy, she adjusts the car clocks now. Now I'm off for half a year. But happy wife.

I think by definition, a digital clock knows 0 and 1. What they display is a different story but many "digital" clocks that support military display most definitely show 00:00:00. So all I'm saying is even though they may display 11:11, internally it could still be 00:00.

I leave my motorcycle clock like you (did) and just adjust. It's too much a pain to reset twice a year.

One of the induction cookers died Saturday. It was cooking when I plugged in the other induction cooker into the same GFCI outlet. Outlet went POP and everything died. Tried to reset the outlet, no good. Plugged induction cooker into another outlet on a different circuit. No lights, no nothing. Second cooker still worked fine. Can't find a reset button or circuit breaker on the dead one.
Picked up a new GFCI outlet yesterday as we left town and installed it that evening. Manufacturer's website only has BOGO offer (I don't need 3) but no information on troubleshooting or tech support. Right now we're traveling too much to order and get it shipped to us anyway.
Anyone else have one just die like that?

Or if you are in Arizona, no change needed. Oh, and the temperature was in the mid 90's today.
Be safe out there.

Well, if Florida gets its way, it'll be the same here!!! They voted to be like AZ last year, need US gob't approval to validate it

Oh, and the temperature was in the mid 80's yesterday, rain storm coming through later today and back to low humidity (ok, low for Florida, less than 45%) for the rest of the week, like last week!!!

We are going to move from Starke to Lakeland today. But the rain is a consistent downpour! Hoping for a break.

Yep! I would have spent as much time on the phone as Ed did hooking up, towing, analyzing, replacing filters just waiting for road side assistance to answer the phone.

Happy to hear it was something easy (for you)

BTW, did we say how much fun it was when we were in Gulfport and able to be with you two? Thanks.

Getting pretty close to where I'm at

No rain yet, they said it'd be further north and eventually make its way down here, maybe not till later this evening.

If you saw the weather map, it doesn't look like a break until it's over later on.
