On Thursday we had to leave the Caboose Lake Campground in Remington to head north to Shipshewana. Once again we were having some issues with the refrigerator! The freezer was working just fine but the control panel for the lower part was showing some codes that indicated there was a problem. Greg spoke to Leon at National RV Refrigeration who walked him through some diagnosing of the problem. We finally decided that since we were already in northern Indiana we would feel better if Leon looked at the fridge in person. Since he was already booked up for the next couple of weeks we took a chance on going up and sitting in his parking lot to see if he could work us in. I don’t think we will ever let anyone else look at this fridge again, Leon is so knowledgeable and his prices are extremely reasonable.
As it turns out we got lucky, he was able to get to us on Friday afternoon and found that one of the defrost fans wasn’t working properly. This caused water to go into someplace it wasn’t supposed to go and that affected something else – reminded me of that “knee bone’s connected to the….”song. Something very minor just snowballed into a bigger issue. Leon was able to fix the problem and we were on our way back home on Saturday morning.While we were in Shipshewana the weather was mild in the evening so we slept with the windows open. There was no traffic noise except an occasional horse and carriage. Since we didn’t have electricity there in the parking lot and we didn’t want to run the generator all night, there was absolutely nothing running in the coach, no little red, green or blue lights indicating electrical appliances are plugged in. Outside there were no street lights or porch lights. It was so quiet and dark, I had trouble falling asleep. You don’t realize how much background noise is in your life until it all goes away – scary.
This was the view across the road.
