Just three things I needed to complete today. Defrost the fridge, make a run to Wal-Mart for some items and gas, and stop at Punta Gorda Water Plant to get some free water.
So here is a question to those RV’ers. How do you defrost your RV Fridge? Leave me a comment if you would. Me? I use a hair dryer on low heat and direct it away from the temperature sensor. My sensor is on the 4th. fin from the right. A close look at the photo above and you can see the clip holding the sensor. I do not want any heat hitting directly on this sensor.
The “blue box with battery” is my Fridge Fan. It’s supposed to make the fridge a little more efficient. Just sitting it next to the fins doesn’t seem to do anything, so I’m trying to angle it toward the Fridge Evaporator Fins. Time will tell I guess how well this little fan actually does.
After that little job was completed, I was off to Wal-Mart. Gas is $3.43 per gallon. It has been that price since we arrived here Jan. 1st. The Wal-Mart we always head for is located in Port Charlotte, FL. Our RV Park has an Arcadia mailing address but we are much closer to Port Charlotte. From Wal-Mart I headed over to I-75 for a quick 8 mile ride over Charlotte Harbor into Punta Gorda where the water plant is located. I filled up my containers and now have 12 gallons of fresh water. We feel much more confortable drinking that water over the well water from the RV Park. Even running the RV Parks well water through a carbon filter, we can still taste the “well water taste”. Most of the RV’ers here at the park do exactly what I did today for drinking water.
Tomorrow the weather man calls for afternoon temperatures to hit 82F. I might start to apply the wax to the motorhome tomorrow. We will see…..maybe just spend a lazy day lounging around the pool!
Did you see the moon this evening? Wow…just beautiful.
Until next time, be safe and God Bless.
