Last evening, we went to a very nice wedding of the elder daughter of Jim’s best friend. Intended to be an outdoor wedding, instead one hundred revelers were in a 4,000 sf tent. The wedding went perfectly. We were glad to see friends again from as much as a decade ago. And the buffet was so good — Charles, Jim’s son, said it best — “I love food at southern weddings.” We had cornbread, bbq, collards, beans, and potato salad. Some dancing, a lot of visiting, a little roasting and toasting the bride and groom. A great wedding.This morning Jim hitched up our trailer, dumped tanks, put away cords, and was thoroughly rained through. He changed into dry clothes and we drove from Asheville to the Camping World in Statesville, 100 miles east. We had ordered a spare gas jet for our trailer’s refrigerator. It’s handy to have a spare for when the fridge won’t run on gas.
We don’t know for sure whether the jet is the problem. But every time we take it out, soak it overnight, blow it dry, and re-install it, the fridge switches to gas perfectly. Now we’ll have a spare gas jet to replace immediately and can take our time cleaning the dirty one. Odd thing, though, is we didn’t have this problem for the first four years. Recently we have this problem every couple of weeks. We’re wondering if we have dirty gas piping between the bottles and the fridge.
Camping World’s parts department ordered the jet in for us and called us a few days ago to confirm it arrived. They held it ready for our pickup today, and picking it up was a breeze. Of course, we always find something we didn’t plan on when shopping at Camping World. Today was no exception, but that’s a story for another day.
