Atascosa RV Park - Pleasanton, TX - rest & reading Dec 4

Atascosa RV Park - Pleasanton, TX - Thursday, December 4, 2014
Morning 60 Degrees, wind 4 mph E, humidity 97%, cloudy - thick fog and gray sky’s at noon.

Taking it easy today reading blog’s and writing some inquires to others. One blog with detailed posts (four) replacing the RV refrigerator. Removing the RV Norcold 1200 gas absorption type and installing a residential refrigerator used in homes operate by means of a compressor. This blog is also installing a Samsung same model as we are going to use in Buster. This conversion was done in 2012 and as of today over two years of operation in the motorhome. A later post on the blog has them installing a clip to the refrigerator cooling coil inside as there was a freezing blockage of the water drain. Great information from other RV’ers blogging their experiences. The new models of this refrigerator should have the clip installed, something for me to check on in January.

Another blog they replaced the Norcold 1200 with a Whirlpool Model ED2GVEXVD from Lowe's. Pictures of the empty area with RV refrigerator removed showed evidence of burning at the top of the compartment from propane gas refrigerator operation. There could have been a real coach fire with more gas operation in the future. The picture is at the area of the roof vent opening of the coach, the black area is burnt. Some of these blog stories are two or four years old, i wish i knew of these in 2012 when I replaced the cooling unit on our Norcold 1200.
Afternoon 72 Degrees, wind Variable, humidity 71%, partly cloudy. Bonnie and I took a trip into Pleasanton looking for storage bins to replace the current two being used to store canned goods under in Buster, also known as “the bodega”, we were successful.
