The second night of sleep was very comfortable. The Vornado electric heater ran the entire night and kept the camper in the mid-50s, even with an outside temp in the high 20s. When getting up I did turn on the Atwood furnace that quickly brought the temp into the upper 60s. I turned off the propane heater at that time letting the Vernado keep the camper comfortable.
The Dometic fridge had been running in 110V mode since yesterday afternoon. The fridge temp was still low – just above freezing. With more time in the camper I am sure I’ll have a better feeling for how to set the thermostat based on the outside temp.
After using the KOA’s bathroom I had a good breakfast and did some reading.
Around 11AM I broke camp and headed for the place I work, Sage Marine, to conduct the repair to the door’s deadbolt.
I couldn’t get the screws holding the strike plate in place to back out so I drilled off the heads. With the strike plate removed I could see that the assembler had already tried to correct the problem, twice, with no success.
I set the strike plate into the correct position and re-insalled the plate with some sheet metal screws. The prior install attempts left visible holes above the strike plate that I covered/filled with some Sikaflex 291.
Overall the weekend was a success. All critical systems are working and one issue, the door’s deadbolt, was easily fixed.
As I write this I am a few days away from departing on a trip that will keep me on the road for most of February, traveling at least 6,000 miles, and going to the east coast, back across the country to the west coast, and then back home to Denver. This trip will be taken with the Toyota Tundra and Outfitter. Look for updates as I report on the trip & the Outfitter.
