Another repair Fred can handle...

For those compiling a list of really easy tasks (that even Fred can do), here is another.

I replaced the light bulbs behind my control panel. I never knew that there was a pump light, AC light, and Control Panel light! WOW! The panel is black is it's real hard to see the window for the indicator light.

I slowly pulled the panel out (clamps at 12, 3, 6, and 9 o'clock) and took out the bad bulbs (GE 1445), hit DAP, and put in new ones. Now on to replacing the Hot-1 hot water dispenser. I disconnetec the water supply to and capped the line with a 1/4 cap.

Fred,

Anything can be done if you take the time to do it carefully and document what you disconnect so you can hook it back up the way you found it. It is amazing all of the info you have when the lights all work!

Of course my "AC Power" light stays on all the time. My understanding was that light comes on when I am plugged into shore power. I also thought it might come on when the gen set is producing AC power. It ends up staying on all the time. My 11 years old got a good laugh out of it. I didn't see the humor. Maybe I'll get take the tent for him for the next outing!

Good job Fred, I did this myself awhile back. It was pretty dusty back there.
