Right inverter, wrong outlet
Believe it or not we woke up at 8:30 am to give Camping World all day to work on Bella. Still half asleep we waddled our way to the customer lounge with our laptops and books and our morning coffee.
Mar spent the day working online. Bernie spent most of the day on the phone, taking care of stuff that she needed to get done. Throughout the day we met several people and had some great conversations about RVing. Someone we met today may even want to hire Bernie for a small job. Later, Tom, the manager, showed up with coffee and donuts for us. We were surprised and very thankful.
By late afternoon Bobby came to tell us it was all done. Bernie went out to look it over and Bobby showed her how everything works while they tested the system and wall outlets. Bobby also showed Bernie how to work the new lightning rod we had installed in the water heater so that we can save on propane, and then Bobby helped Bernie put a ninety degree elbow on the waste pipe. This will make things much easier when it’s time to dump.
As we were getting ready to go, we plugged in the laptops and noticed nothing happened. Turns out this is the only outlet Bobby and Bernie didn’t test. We got Bobby back out to look at it and he thought he figured it out but we would have to wait till tomorrow to take care of it because it was quitting time. So it looks like we will be getting another breaker tomorrow.
We went back to the CW parking lot, hooked up the electric, and got ready to spend the night … again.
