As Carol reported on her blog tonight, we did find a residential refrigerator to go into our RV. Yesterday we went searching (Lowes, Home Depot, Fry’s) and found a good one at Lowes, but they could not deliver until after Jan 1 which is too late.
Interestingly enough, many folks who do this conversion have to wait 6-8 weeks to get the exact model to fit their space requirements. Our requirements are tighter than most yet we want to do this all in a week’s time with a two day holiday included!!!
The one unit we found last night at Home Depot could be delivered in time but was not really what we wanted. Plus we both realized this morning that we would only be able to open it when the slide was out! Yuk!
So today we went shopping for other options. We went to Sears and found a model that was almost the exact replica of the good one at Lowes except Sears can deliver in 2 days! Works for us!
A quick call to the Apache RV folks to make sure the unit will work from their viewpoint. They got online, downloaded all the specs, and called back about 10 minutes later with the go-ahead. So we ordered it to be delivered on Wednesday with installation scheduled for Thursday.
If all goes well, it will only take one day. So we will bring the unit to them at 8am and hopefully bring it back at 5pm. I will be there while it is being worked on as I want to know how it is installed in case I ever have to take it out to be worked on. I plan to take pictures and will post some on the blog.
Here is a picture of the unit and we did order it in black. This one includes an in-door dispenser for water and ice and to top it off, it is frost free! No more defrosting after our trips!!! yippee!!!
On another note, I got a new cell phone today and now am going through the process of loading all my applications and accounts and settings. The last phone lasted 2 years and it seems like it will take me that long to get the new one configured. Fortunately, it is a larger version of the one Carol got a few months back so the look and feel of both phones is pretty much the same.
The version of the android operating system, code named “Jelly Bean,” is the same version I wrote about putting on my nook tablet a month or two ago. So that will make it easy to go back and forth between devices.
We had great weather again today but now it is getting cold outside so we are bundling up.
I’ll close with this….regarding all the hype about the Mayan calendar predicting the end of the world tomorrow, it is nice to have a calendar that is edible!!!
