Football Play-offs - Day 2

 It was around 9 when Yuma and I headed out.  It was warm and the sun was shining.  So much better on the psyche when the sun shines.  Maybe that's why I like winters out here so much!  Dolly sent me a picture of Nick's Dad Steve after his before work 10 mile run.

Now that's cold! 😱
After breakfast, I decided to fix another "Nancy" problem.  My awning always worked until this trip and for some reason it stopped working.  I tested voltage in the switch a number of times over the last weeks and it always came up dead.  

I decided today I would read the RV manual 😌  I went to the section on awning and read it.  Right in black and white it said there is a safety switch in the fourth cabinet from the door.  

Checked and sure enough there is one.  When I loaded the cabinets I must have pushed something up against it and turned off the electricity to the awning.  What do you know?  The awning miraculously started working again 😵  Another stupid but easy problem solved 😀

Then it was game time.  We have three games today so it is hard to work on problem solving while watching football.  I spent most of my day while watching the games trying to determine why my spare 100 watt solar panel is not charging my two extra batteries.  Never figured it out before the sun went down making it a tomorrow problem.

Not going to say much now but just a hint.  My fridge is acting up again so I'm going to have to do surgery on the fridge very soon.  Just got to find the time.  I'm not sure if I'm relaxing or not so far on this trip 😠

Late in the afternoons each day a neighbor, JR walks by with his dog named Bard.  Bard is kind of old and cranky, but Yuma enjoys trying to play with him.  Well today, Bard brought a friend named Dakota and he was more Yuma's age and those two had a ball!

Had a steak again tonight and Nick had a cheeseburger.  Only one steak left is why 😁  The games have gone well today.  All my favorite teams won and with that I'm calling it a night.

Thanks for stopping by.

  1. That's good you got your awning working with an easy fix. Yuma made some new friends. All your teams won today. That's good. Just one more game tomorrow to root on. Hope the fridge is keeping things okay for now.

  2. Oh my .... I'm sorry all those Nancy problems are bothering you. I know exactly what you mean, and why do they always involve electricity??? Those were some fun football games. Don't worry about the food ... just get the TV working for more games to come!!!

    1. Steve runs many marathons so he must stay tuned and ready. That fridge is a pain in the neck. But it is big.

  5. Glad the awning was a easy fix. I'm guessing the fridge may not be as easy. Yuma meets a lot of friends out there. NFL games went good but two of the three were not very competitive.

    1. The awning was easy once I read the RV manual 😄 lots of lopsided games so far. Will change next weekend. Hoping fridge isn't too hard.

  6. Dang - hiding the cutoff switch in a cabinet is cruel!
    Hope you can find the fridge problem soon, sure seems to be elusive.

    1. I was surprised it was there. A simple toggle switch easy to hit when putting something in the cabinet. Got a plan on the fridge.
