My RV Fridge Died, How your RV Fridge operates.

Retro-Winnie-3, a Leaking Ice Maker Problem

Well, there I was, on my next fix or possible upgrade to my RETRO-WINNIE. While we were camping in lynchburg last month, a little problem developed after about three days in our campsite.

Our First Day in our Campsite in Lynchburg, Virginia.

We finally moved from our daughters driveway and moved into our campsite at the Moose Club (#1727). As you can see, we had just leveled the camper, hooked up to my sites power and turned on the AC.

Well, we arrived yesterday at our daughters house. We backed into their driveway, just like I describe in my article on HubPages. In the spot first try! We hooked up to their utilities and sat back with a glass of Chardonnay, just to take that hyped up "we are on the road" attitude and crank …

Autumn in Virginia – a Camping Trip – Day-5

It aint always pretty when you are Camping! OK, all Campers know it, but they don't like to admit it, especially to non-Campers. Often, they don't even like to admit it to themselves. It rains in Campgrounds just like everywhere else. And, sometimes it rains for days, just like everywhere else. We have actually been watching …
