Hello all!

Guess who just surfaced?
Had a nice visit from dougandmaggie a week or so ago and I am getting ready to live in my Airstream full time pretty soon now.
No new bear stories..........

Carol

Glad to see you're back, Carol! I've really enjoyed your posts, and was just wondering the other day where you'd gotten to. Good luck with your transition to full timing!

Well the latest news is I have decided to let my house go and am moving my Airstream to a small RV park here in Ojai. I lucked out and went by there the other day just as their best site opened up. Had to make up my mind on the spot and plan to move it over there tomorrow. I am in the back, in the corner with a grass yard and flowers to boot. The good part is that my two black labs are allowed there and Lake Casitas is only a mile away where I take them to walk everyday.
The bad part is that I just found out my Dometic frig quit on me and my oven still burns with too much soot on the inside. At least I'll have the house for a few months so I can iron those problems out.

Good to hear you found a site for your Airstream--sounds like the perfect place for you and your pups.

Take care and stay in touch,

That's wonderful news, Carol. I hope that you will find happiness there.

Don't forget our hunger for photos. When you get a chance be sure to send us a few of your trailer in it's new home!

I promise to take some pictures soon... I spent all day there getting set up, at least I am doing this slowly. I still have the house for a few more months. I am so miffed the refrigerator quit. It is the original frig from 1966. Any chance it might be just a fuse? It was all plugged in to the house current and running fine, then one day poof, it quit.

Carol

Carol,
I wouldn't be too upset at the refer, it gave its all, don't you think? Forty-four years for a refrigerator is a long time in my book.

You could get it upgraded/rebuilt, but I'm willing to bet that doing it that way could well cost more than a new one, and the new ones are sooo fresh inside...

Great to hear from you again Carol! Fulltiming, hey? You are making alot of people jealous. I have the same idea, eventually, but I have two adult children I'm trying to launch first. That's another story though. How's Ojai? How's the Airstream? How's the bear & dogs getting along? Why did you want a bear when you already had two dogs? More questions later, let's get onto the refer! or, on, to the refer...
The refer runs on 110 when you are plugged into shore power and have the shore power switch on, but if it's been working you already have that figured out. It may be a tripped breaker in you trailer. It might be that the old heating element has finally given up the ghost, or your plug may have come loose and lost its connection. The plug should be accessed from the lower, outside refer hatch, but you may not be able to actually SEE it. It will probably be on the wall above the hatch. Just follow the cord up to the plug and make sure it's plugged in well. If the heating element has burned out it may be hard to find a replacement for, but any electrician can check it for you to see if it's burned out or not. First check the obvious, the 110 volt power supply to the refer outlet can be tested by you with an inexpensive electrical outlet tester that just plugs into the outlet where the refer is now plugged in. check at Ace or Lowes or whatever is closest to you. You just plug it into the outlet and it lights up if there is power. In the meantime, if it runs on propane, and you have had it checked out, just switch it over for the time being and run on propane. If you are unsure of the gas operation of the refer you should have it checked out and the operation shown to you by a technician, so you will be able to deal with it easier if you have problems and need to switch it over yourself. Most are easy to deal with once you are familiar with them. Switching out the tanks then becomes your biggest issue with keeping food fresh.
If you didn't get a bad smell of ammonia out of it, then it will probably be fixable pretty inexpensively.
If you have money to throw at it, a new one would be nice, no doubt, but my 46 year old refer works pretty damn good and doesn't require a constant 12 volt power source like some new ones do, and I can run on propane even if I don't have battery power. With the new ones if you have a full tank of propane, but no battery power, you are out of luck.
Happy landings at your new pad. It sounds fantastic!

Rich the Viking
