We were asking questions on another thread (Battery not charging while towing), which addressed our 7 hour tow home.
I thought I'd share what happened on the 7 hour tow OUT.
One of us (not really important WHICH one of us, right)? Unhooked the charger but forgot to hook up the battery
. Result: things cooled off in fridge
AND one fuse kept blowing.
We couldn't understand WHY, since no previous tows had caused this problem. Poor hubby replaced about 4 fuses down in the valley heat.
Later on, when we set up, we realized we hadn't had the battery
hooked up to charge on the way down. Then we wondered -- did the loose leads cause the fuse to blow?
All I can say is, we properly hooked up the leads to battery
on the way home and no fuses blew. This may be kindergarten stuff for some of you, but lots of us are learning as we go. Hope this helps someone else.
(This points up what I decided when learning to sail with the hubby -- I need a spreadsheet with detailed launch procedure IN SEQUENCE. Do one item out of sequence and it can mean sitting at the dock taking everything apart and re-doing. We haven't put one together yet for the trailer, but it's coming.)
