A little mystery story

We were at our annual Octoberfest and Pie-Fest extended family and friends camping trip at Heise Park near Julian, CA, last weekend. We were so glad our daughter and her husband brought our two granddaughters, Jill (3) and Camille (1 1/2) for a day visit. It was time for Jill's nap, and her mom was settling her into the bed in "Gumpa's twayler." I heard her call me in some distress - "Dad, the water won't come on!"

I hustled inside and sure enough, everything was dead! No lights would work, no fans, no water pressure because the pump wouldn't run. "Jill was playing with the switches in the bathroom." Hmm... water heater and overhead lights. Shouldn't matter.

I checked the converter circuit breakers and fuses - all ok. Hmmm, again.

(OK, it's been about a minute, and many of you are already shouting the answer. But let me finish the story.)

I scurried out to the battery compartment - all normal. I checked the little light on the front jack - it worked! HMMM!

The phrase "Jill was playing with the switches" lingered in the back of my mind.

Battery disconnect! That confusing button that is at child-height with a little red light right inside the door! Perfect for Jill's curious little index finger.

Sure enough, the light was off, and a push of the button restored life to the trailer. I think I'll child-proof it.
John and Lynn,
