Today we discovered that our fridge has died. The cooling unit on it has given up the ghost and died. Naturally we have it stuffed with food. Had a mobile RV guy look it over today and he verified that it is dead. Norcold has certain procedures that must be followed and it goes in for a 1/2 day appointment tomorrow to have that done. Then, assuming it is the cooling unit, we will have to wait up to 3 weeks for the part. Yuk!
The good news is that it appears it will be covered under warranty. The part alone is $2,100 so that is good. Meanwhile we bought some dry ice this morning and put that in and around and it got things under control. However it would take $20 worth of dry ice per day to keep us going.
So we bought a small electric 3.6cuft fridge and it is outside plugged in and cooling down now. Tomorrow we will cram it full with all that we can. We also bought more dry ice and will try to keep what remains as cool as we can until we can use it all up. When we get home, I’ll put the small fridge out in my shop and use it there.
During all this hassle, we did get in a 7 mile bike ride around Shell Beach and also back here at the campground.
