Well, it started off nice . . .
And then this happened Saturday afternoon (the day before we leave) . . .
We lost power to the RV. Unbeknownst to us we were running on just our batteries for a few hours, and the batteries dropped to 38% capacity – VERY bad.
Long story short . . . our Surge Guard unit gave up the ghost. The Surge Guard is what protects the RV against electrical faults from campground power. You betcha. The unit was less that 1 year old. When we arrived at our next campground, we tried plugging it in again to a new power source, but nada. The Surge Guard is toast.
Luckily, we were able to “re-wire” (actually reroute) our power cables so that we could connect to shore power without going through the now dead Surge Guard.
But wait, there’s more . . . at 1:25 am . . .
So, after opening all the RV windows, the detector still beeped, so I clipped its power wires and we went to sleep.
We were alive in the morning.
