Yep, the company was 100% terrific! Wonderful people to visit and laugh with!
And the learning we did!!!!!
1. After getting the air conditioner in the window---it began to trip the power off more and more often. At bedtime, the stars were shining, but it was hot and humid---so we needed the a/c. But the power started tripping off every 20 mins. or so. Deely would go out, push the reset button on the main electrical
box, and it would get cool inside, only to blow again! We finally had to give up and turn the fan of our non-working evaporative cooler on, which did help.
BUT then the rain moved in---and we found our leaks! Rain coming in from the evaporative cooler, filling up above the paneling strip on the ceiling, traveling down the strip and dripping into the bed! So we had a bucket on the floor under the e. cooler, and I had a towel in the bed. Then rain started to trickle from corner of the back window.
The next day, Deely got a second extension cord, hooked up the a/c directly to the camp power box---no more problems! Evidently, there's something in the camper wiring that prevented it from working going thru the camper. Everything else worked fine! We also covered the top of camper with a tarp---no more rain inside! Just mud from when we went in and out LOL!
2. On our way home, about 50 miles from Omaha, we blew a camper tire! Lesson learned---keep jack where you can get it easily. After unloading the back of Element and obtaining jack, I, too, stood at the side of the road to direct traffic away from Deely, (dang that's scary!), and we got that taken care of. UNFORTUNATELY, the blown tire caused damage to the camper! We lost the covering to a side light
, the "door" to the electical opening for cord, a repaired crack was re-opened and a piece of fiberglass from underneath behind the tire was torn away---exposing wires and the inside of the storage area under the dinette booth.
So now the poor thing is parked at the storage place, all duct taped with a tarp on top!!!!
ROBIN: Thank the good Lord, you didn't drive all this way for the Kansas tropical rain season!!!
