I had the air conditioner on my SOB freeze up when staying at Top Sail years ago. The unit was still under warranty and I was lucky that the local RV repair company was passing through the park (they ride through once a week) so there was no trip charge. After checking pressures out and finding no problems, they noted that I was running the fan on low speed. They said that it is a mistake to run at low in high humidity locations since the moisture laden air will freeze on the inside coils when airflow is low. Once defrosted we ran on high fan speed and had no further freeze up issues.

Always seems to work!

PharmGeek: Wasn't being critical. Or as my family might say, no more than usual. Unfortunately, whatever stupid thing anyone's done? I probably already did it, at least twice.

I am just curious about these pulled out cabinet screws.

Would it be possible to convert to a a flathead screw (or whatever head would match the existing hardware) and drill all the way through the cabinet edge and put a small washer with a lock nut on the other side?

Is the "filler" between the outer and inner formica on the cabinet rails solid wood or a press wood product? That makes a big difference in a wood screw remaining in place for long time.

Switz - I'll double check - I'm inclined to think it is some sort of press wood....I see what you are saying - just not sure a

Zigzag - hahahaha - well - can I say I've crossed out that item and skip it here going.forward?

Funny story. Last year when getting ready to pull out of crested butte, co, I managed to get locked out of the truck with the engine running, trailer hitched up and transmission in neutral! And then it started raining.

Yes an easier fix than the year before when I lost my wallet on the second day of a three and half week outing with my 4 and 8 year old kids without the wife.

Great write up on your adventure to Topsail Hill- thanks for sharing!

Last summer DH dropped his keys, wallet, glasses, etc. on the boardwalk to the beach. Luckily a park ranger was changing the flag and picked them up and returned them to us

We wear those highly fashionable shoes called Crocs to deal with sand. If I loudly remind everyone in the family to kick them off before entering the trailer, it helps keep sand out. Usually takes a couple days to train them though, lol! A DustBuster and stick vac are a big help too.

Sometimes minor mishaps add to the adventure and memories when you look back on it We like to think of what we would do the same or different for the next trip on our way home. Have a great trip to GA!
