I stayed at home today so I could supervise (:)) the young guys working on my rig. The new fridge was delivered late this morning, so Cory, the tech I’ve been working with and son of the owner, started getting things ready for the switch.
If you are at all familiar with how motorhomes are constructed, you might wonder how that switch was going to be accomplished. Neither the old or the new fridge was going to fit through the door. Cory felt they would have to take out a set of windows in order to get things done. I can tell you that I was not crazy about that idea.
They just pushed it in through the open window!
They were happy with how slick it went, and so was I! :)
Then Cory put the doors back on, plugged it in, and it started cooling down in the middle of my living area. While we waited for it to cool some, Cory began the process of getting the old fridge ready to be removed. It only took about an hour before we could transfer the food from the old to the new. :) Notice that this model has the bottom freezer. Wahoo!
By this time, it was nearing closing time, so they put the outside vent back on and headed out the door. This also happened to be the time that a strong cold front with rain and whistling northerly winds moved through. That wind was howling through the outside vent into the rig, so I taped some plastic wrap over the vent and then covered that with a heavy towel. Duck tape to the rescue once again! It’s supposed to get down to 30* tonight, so I didn’t want that kind of breeze chilling me out.
Tomorrow, the new fridge will go into place. I’m already loving this new appliance even if it is hording my living room space for a night. :) And I’ll sleep better knowing my rig won’t catch on fire.
Thanks for stopping by…. talk to you later, Judy
