Wow, we have five new blog followers in the last day or two, its been a while since somebody new showed up but welcome aboard guys. Fossilfreamer, CJCozygirl, and Willam McKibbin,these three have not included a link to their blogs so we cannot follow them, welcome aboard and thanks for the commenting on our posts. The next two have added their blog links so stop by and vist with them if you wish. Ruth and Papoojacks.
If you read yesterday's posting you will remember, we picked up new house batteries for our coach (old ones seven years old so they were due to be replaced anyway). But this morning it is pouring rain and notice that the batteries are pretty low and not charging.
So research and research then research some more. Then I took all this information and tested and tested and tested all there was to test. Appears that our converter is pooched. Not charging the batteries at all. Yes we can start the coach engine and charge the batteries, no charge when plugged into power or when the generator is running. They do charge from the solar panel (if the sun is shinning, not today thou!) So even thou our batteries were almost done looks like we need to purchase a new converter as well. Oh well thats the cost of living in a house.
Then more research for the best deal on one and found a pretty good deal at Sicards in Smithville Ontario. They have one is stock at a fair price so looks like I will be making a trip there to pick it up soon. Will be a pretty simple install so just need to find the time.
By the time this was done its time to fire up our Weber for supper and tonight a couple chicken breasts and some taters in foil with onions.
|add some broccoli and cheese, and a tomato slice all is good|
|after supper, it stopped raining so made a nice campfire|
We are having friends Randy and Gail come here this weekend to the resort and will be nice to visit with them again, its been a couple years since we last saw them. They have an very nice class "A" coach and brought their dog "Holly" along with them.
|Randy, Gail and Holly|
A great evening and visit, chin wagging and catching up by the fire, but the evenings get cool so not out too late, they had to work today too, so kinda tired.
|another nice campfire|
This time of year the campfires are becoming few and far between so we enjoy every single one that we can.
Glad you could stop in and enjoy it too, stop by anytime.
