Shortly before 10:00, Steve received a call from Larry...he had just arrived at La Posa South. So Steve hopped on his quad and went out to meet him and direct him in. After checking out which blinds needed to be fixed, Larry got started. He was working at it while Steve looked on...when the phone rang again. Garrett, the mobile RV Wash fellow, was here...so Steve again rode his quad out to direct him in.
So it was busy at our place...with our blinds being fixed and the fifth-wheel and truck being washed.
Steve went out to check it and found the compartment full of water...while washing that side of the trailer, Garrett had sprayed a lot of water through the vents (which he denied...but it was kind of obvious). Steve told him this was going to cost him. No payment for his services until this was resolved. This is a photo of our old high limit module replaced at the end of November...
As Steve was doing some online research on troubleshooting, he found out from a forum that to reset it, you run a strong magnet underneath it near the red light. He tried that a couple of times...and it still beeped when fired back up. He decided to call RV Lifestyles here in Q to see if they had the module but they didn't stock it...it has to be ordered in. Sheesh! As he was talking on the phone, Earl happened to come over...and he went to work on seeing if he could fix the problem. Being an electronics issue, this was right up his ally!
They took the module out, opened it and, as suspected, found water in it. After letting it dry out, he ran the magnet by it a couple of times, put it back together and wired it up.
And it worked! Thanks for your help Earl! The fridge was on again...whew! Thank goodness! Lesson learned...be careful to ensure that water is not sprayed directly into the vents!
We all met over at Bob and Sue's at 10:00 Friday morning...time to go for our first ride out on the desert! There would be six four-wheelers heading out today...four quads (Earl/Allison, Bob, Steve and me) and two side-by-sides (Jim/Barb and Sue). It was a beautiful sunny day...but chilly, with highs only to around 55F/13C. It was quite windy, though, making if feel much cooler.
Our first stop was at one of the entrances to the Kofa National Wildlife Refuge.

Sue, Earl and Allison searching on the hillside and I'm down in the wash with Bandit...
Crystal Hill, located in the northwest corner of Kofa National Wildlife Refuge in the Livingston Hills, is the only area within the refuge where recreational rock or mineral collecting is permitted. Quartz crystals are hidden in the washes and on the rocky slopes of Crystal Hill, making this an ideal location for rockhounding or collecting. While searching for quartz crystals at the top of the hill, visitors can also enjoy the 360 degree view of the surrounding area.
We got cleaned up and managed to sit outside in the sunshine against the trailer (out of the wind) for a bit before heading in to get ready to go to a gathering of RVillagers. New to RVing, Cindi and Roger were hosting it for all of the early arrivers to Q. They have a beautiful...and unique...Momentum fifth-wheel. It is a toy hauler but the living room is up front with the bedroom at the rear with a smaller garage spot at the rear under the bedroom for their side-by-side. It's always interesting to see what new designs the manufacturers come out with each year. This is the nicest Toy-hauler we've seen to date.
