The arctic vortex that brought sub zero temps to the northern US reached the south on Monday (1/6/2014). In comparison to what the news was showing up north, the weather was downright balmy – highs Monday and Tuesday were in the low 20s. Nevertheless, the little bit of heating in the wet bay couldn’t keep up with 50 hours straight below freezing and early Wednesday morning water leaks showed the way to burst pipes and fittings. It was way too cold, and wet, for me to work on, and of course I don’t have a pressure tester, so it was back to Camping World. Parts $16, labor $320.
The buyer for my Kendon trailer will be picking it up on Friday and then I’ll be heading to Grayton Beach in Florida (between Panama City and Destin on the panhandle coast).
