Antifreeze? What Antifreeze????

So we parked at a nearby state park the other day and set up camp. As soon as I hooked up the water, I hear a waterfall. Several waterfalls. Knowing there's no waterfall nearby, I shut off the water and found 4 leaks in the Windy.

When we got back home the next day, I inquired about frozen pipes on and found out that I am supposed to put RV antifreeze in them pipes after draining 'em out. Oh. Never had to do that in Southeast Tejas, but it obviously got a lot colder here in the Front Range than down theah.

Time to run the Windy over to the butt-crack man!

Winter is almost over.

Got a big relief yesterday. You may remember me mentioning that I "blew" the electrical system on Windy back in December by running waaay too many power stuffs. Well, yesterday I fired up the Windy and wondered if there was a circuit breaker somewhere I've missed and sure enuf I turned on the genny and popped the cover and there was a big ol' 30 amp breaker in the off position. I turned it on and voila! Powah restored! TV, Heet, A/C etc. operational.

Only thing left on the fairly immediate list is to replace the switch for the bedroom slide. It's getting a little touchy. Later I can figure out about the rear running lite problem, but I don't plan on any nite driving for a while since there's lots of camping close to the home 20.
