Turkey Lasagna & Cheesecake Tarts…

Today we slept in until about 11 am (well, I slept in until 11. Jan got up about 9).

About 1pm we headed over to our friend’s house to meet them.  Jan and Charlee headed out to shop and get pedicures while Bill and I watched the ‘Deadliest Catch’ marathon on Discovery Channel.

After the girls got home, we had a delicious turkey lasagna and salad. For dessert Charlee had also made Oreo Chocolate Pie and Cheesecake Tarts.

Great Eats!

But on a down note, when we got back to the coach about 10 pm, we found the 30 amp circuit breaker tripped outside on the pedestal that we plug into.  The temperature inside was 81 degrees.  Not good for our cats, but luckily, they were OK.

This park only has 30 amp power so we can only run 1 AC at a time, which is normally not a problem. But apparently in this park the power is a little flakey.

The other problem was that because the inverter was on, the coach batteries were drained down. This meant that with the converter/charger trying to recharge the batteries when I reset the breaker, there wasn’t enough power left over to run the AC to cool the coach down.

However we did all right by running the roof ventilation fans and opening a couple of windows.  Because it was fairly cool outside due to the recent rains, the coach cooled down pretty quickly.

Finally about 1 am the batteries were charged up enough for me to start the AC for the rest of the night.

We’ll see how this goes tomorrow…
