How did you get the wire through the computer?

I gave up AT&T 5 years ago and got a Magic Jack. Saved $70 a month by dropping AT&T. Magic Jack was/is about $19 a year. I have it plugged into the router so I can turn the computer off. Or, there is a power failure the router comes back on but the computer may not.

The girls and I picked up our new refrigerator today from a marine supply in Seattle.

Nova Kool RFU9000 9.1 CU FT DC Only Two Door Refrigerator & Freezer

It works like a residential unit but runs on 12 volt DC current. It fits the same space as my 6 cu ft Dometic but holds 9.1 cubic ft. I can’t wait to get it installed. Any of you he men want to volunteer to help? I better get that extra solar panel connected first.

So much to do, so little energy. <sigh>

Left, In with the "new"

Right, Out with the "old"

She did us pretty darn good and I hope the next owner (whom ever that is) enjoys their time with it. We are looking forward to the new features and the open floor plan.

Lots of new toys to learn. We have moved a fair amount of stuff over today but there is a lot more to do and figuring out where to put it. Sandee is doing a great job organizing things. We had a lot of help from one of the employee's kids to do a lot of the lifting since I'm still a cripple.

Rain shortened things today so tomorrow we hope it clears out as we start round 2. It's still quite the adventure!

That sounds fantastic, Barb! I couldn't get the link to work (yet) but will take your word. You'll think you've got a Tardis there!

Cheers! Here's to cold beer & salami!

Ah, I got it this time. It does look good, complete w/ low power protection. Good choice! And I see you bought them out, too!

Wowee! You'll be running w/ the biiig boyz now! You have the low clearance warning app, I presume?

What a beauty she is and how much fun you're going to have getting used to her & her ways. Be careful you don't get lost in there. Maybe an intercom system would be helpful.

Congratulations!

Hey, are we going to see you at D&W soon? Martin has requested the 50 cent tour.

THANKS! You and Martin are welcome for the $.50 tour and we won't charge you more than a dime.

We will be back by Monday. We are spending a tonight and tomorrow night in the dealer's lot and then a couple nights in a local CG. We are giving us an option to come back Monday if we find something else needs fixing but they have done a great job prepping the coach.

I'll be interested in your review of this, Barb. So it has a single mode (12VDC)? You'll enjoy the additional space for sure.

ETA--I just noticed that the vents are on the front of the unit. So will you be covering the vents in your RV when installing?

Looks great, Don and Sandee. Congrats! And we are going to need inside pics when you get moved in.

Tardis?

Actually they only stock the AC/DC model, but I didnít see the point of paying more for having dual power. If I am plugged in then the converter provides plenty of DC power. We boondock most of the time and the solar panels keep the batteries charged. I had the 5 weeks to wait so why not save $?

I got more good news today! The medial nerve block trial for my back pain has been approved. I have to successfully complete 2 trials a week apart and then they'll use radio frequency ablation to nuke the nerves in the facets that are causing my pain. My first appointment is July 5th. Hopefully by August I'll be less grumpy.

I plan to cover and seal the outside access door, but I might keep the roof vent if there is a way to redirect some of the heat that exits at the front. I really havenít gotten that figured out yet. I'm trading emails with a guy who has installed one in his RV. I will insulate the cabinet as well as possible, for sure!

(You aren't a Dr. Who fan, then?) Tardis: bigger on the inside than on the outside. So much more space than you are used to; what ... half again as much? I predict you will love it.

Oh joy fer jumpin joy, progress toward a pain solution! Come on 5 July! I hope it proves effective for you.

Grumpy? Who said anything about grumpy? You hide it well, m'dear!

Cheers & ommms!

I was wondering if there would be a lot of heat exhausted into the RV or if it will be similar to a regular residential fridge. Hope it works well for you.

Also glad to hear about the treatment for your back pain; I hope that will help you to feel better.
