It's hot down here! This evening after supper, I began to notice that the AC fan in the house was constantly running, but the temperature in the house seemed a bit on the warm side... checked a register and the air coming out was not cool... checked the condensing unit outside and it wasn't running... noticed an unusual smell from the unit like a blown capacitor... yep, the cap is toast! Am I happy that I wired up a 30 amp breaker and socket for the Casita! Looks like I'm camping in the driveway tonight.

Hey Randy! You found the coolest place in Leland, no doubt. And I even know where Leland is...I used to live in Meridian and my Folks used to live around Union and Neshoba.
Sorry about the blown cap, you ain't workin' on it tonite, so enjoy the cool in yer Casita.

Isn't it great to have optional living quarters when something like that happens? I have a friend who has a horse trailer with living quarters. We had an ice storm & his power was knocked out for a week. It wasn't until after his power was restored that he realized he could have stayed in the trailer & been warm instead of freezing in the house with only a fireplace for heating & cooking! I bet he'll remember next time.

I have done this several times.. in both winter and summer.

My rig is in a campground now for the summer, so I don't have the cooling option this year.
