Latest trip in the mobile rig

leave a comment »

Three weeks ago I took the mobile rig minus the ranger up to Albuqurque for a couple of Doctor appointments.  Trip up was ok.  Got there unloaded the smart car from the trailer hit the va. It was so hot and I had to wait over an hour I was getting nauseous.  Not sure if it was from the heat or altitude but the first couple days it felt it in the heat of the afternoon.  

Seven minutes into my first use of the new microwave it dies for good.  The as I was disconnecting from shore power and getting the car loaded on the trailer I got hot went inside tried to start the genset but the voltage was only 10 volts so I had to turn on the ignition to get it started so the AC worked while I’ll cooled down plus power to put the slides in.

It took me four hours to make it home after being stuck up there over the weekend because the wind started blowing Friday night so bad I was unable to sleep plus it tore the bedroom slide topper awning.sunday afternoon the wind started to die down finally.  The wind Saturday morning felt like a jet was parked behind me with the engines blowing right at me, sounded like also.  When I arrived home I started the genset after checking the voltage it was at 11 volts then after several hour of running the genset the voltage was down to 8 volts.  That conformed my thoughts the inverter was bad which suspossobily was repaired prior to my purchasing the Motorhome.  Guess it wasn’t.  Took it to camping world the following Friday.  Checked with them this week and the inverter was indeed bad.  So the inverter took out two microwaves, two Rv house batteries.  So In my opinion cw should cover all the costs of replacing the microwaves, both batteries and the inverter since the problems have been there all along. 

I hope to pick up the rig next week fully repaired.  That should give me time to verify repairs are complete befor I head back up to ABQ next month for a week and then up the pass to Edgewood for SASSs world championship dry campingfor another week then back to ABQ for several days before returning home.  Come back and I’ll post some photos of everything when it returns and at the ranch for the compitition.
