Friday, February 3
Reggie and I are at Valley Palms RV Supplies and Service for our second appointment.
Jared checks the line from the propane tanks to the refrigerator and the Wave 3 heater for leaks and tightens a connection. The bottom part of the heater needs reattachment and Jared completes that task, too.
As for the refrigerator, it cools very well, better than the old one was cooling.
I had noticed, however, that the refrigerator ventilator fan does not come on. Jared takes care of a simple connection and now the fan does come on.
Later I”ll report on the total cost — parts and labor — for the two appointments. As I type this I need clarification on one part of the bill before posting the figures. (See figures inserted at end of post.)
I’m happy with the service I received at Valley Palms. It’s such a pleasure to have refrigeration again!
Saturday, February 4
My plan, when Reggie and I went to bed last night, was to stay at Midland LTVA for one more day and then leave for a new camp on Sunday, because Sundays are better than Saturdays for camp moves.
Funny how one small item changes a plan.
A library book! How does a library book change my plan, you ask? Well, here’s how.
At present the Perfect Tow Vehicle and the Best Little Trailer are hitched. Before leaving Blythe I need to return this book to the library in town. I don’t want to unhitch, deliver the book, come back, and then hitch up again.
I also don’t want to tow the BLT to town and back to Midland LTVA (10 miles one way) for the sake of one book return.
That means . . .
I might as well drop off the book on the way through town and then continue onward to our next camp! The library is closed on Sundays and I didn’t see a drop-box the last time I looked for one. And I don’t want to hang around until the library opens on Monday.
Therefore, Reggie and I leave Midland LTVA today.
I’ll drop off the book while the library is open for Saturday hours. As the saying goes, “The devil is in the details.”
Plus, I admit I’m restless for the open road again!
Bill for new refrigerator, propane line check, heater repair, and floor receptacle:
I neglected to mention the replacement of the floor receptacle for the table post. Remember when I redecorated? When I attempted to remove the post to exchange the factory table with the one that I purchased, the post was stuck in the receptacle. Removing the post resulted in damage to the receptacle.
The bill, labor plus parts: $1,600.73.
Here are the details:
- 3-way Dometic refrigerator: $1,118 plus $89.44 tax
- floor receptacle: $9.99 plus $.80 tax
- 4.25 hours labor: $382.50

Reggie’s face when he knows he’s going to get a kiss on the cheek.
