Refrigerator report

Cars of beauty and art:
1967 Pontiac GTO 

I was waiting for a completed ice cycle before I updated the refrig, but here I am tonight awaiting the new ice maker to function.

The liner of the icemaker bed was breaking down and pieces of the liner were breaking off so I thought since we have the refrig empty, why not replace it? So yesterday I did replace it. Now it is wait 48-72 hours for it to produce. I am assuming it will make ice, and we are now using the refrigerator. It is about 40 degrees in the box and varying from 14 down to 0 in the freezer. It must be below 14 to make ice.

Smell? Ehhh, well a little smell holding on inside one door but it is negligible. Opening the other three doors my girls nose doesn’t wrinkle. LOL The RV refrigerators are noted for odd behavior and effected by outside temps. In the scheme of things most RV’s are used from a week to 6 weeks a year where we use this one 52 weeks a year.

One reason for a change in Motor homes was to locate one with a residential refrig.  I defrost this one bi-weekly, it is not a major task, but each time it is defrosted you must wait 48-72 hours to make ice. Now that might not mean much to you but my girl loves to ‘eat’ ice and she is constantly refilling a glass.  I have to admit, eating ice is better than potato chips. LOL.

But all in all, we think the refrigerator will pass the smell test.  Now to replace the chicken and beef.  We already have the fish.

I just tucked my girl in for the night, one of my favorite times of a day. She is still the most beautiful woman in the world. Who would have thunk it? At 80 she is just as wonderful and gorgeous as when I dated her and she was 17. My heart sang that song of the day, “Seventeen, Seventeen, prettiest girl I ever seen, etc”  Boyd Bennett in 1955!

Here's hoping it works! We did replace the fridge in one of our campers with a residential fridge. It was permanently parked at a campground and we didn't travel with it. The downside was that it didn't work if the electricity went off. The camper type fridge we had worked on both electricity and propane so if we didn't have electric, it would switch over to the propane and everything would stay frozen. They do say love will find a way and you two will do it, I'm sure!

Opps not sure I said that right maybe it switched over to operating on the batter...not sure as it's been awhile.

There you go! Thank goodness you thought to switch out that part. I'm totally in awe of the likes of you n' my Tom. (And, I suppose, that's how repairmen often become rich?)

'Gotta say it again, I LOVE your and Sherry's love story!

Envy here! Having adventures is our goal now that my beloved has retired.

Isn't it amazing when a refrig fails and we realize how wonderful they are?

Happy Trails.

Just wandered over from Respice.

I'm glad it all working for ya. Yep me and Nick look to have a camper with a regular fridge and a regular toilet. That would put us in a park model, "I think".
It is so sweet how you adore that girl of yours. You are blessed to have each other.

Was talking to my Honey about your Frig, she said we have for years put a bowl of Baking Soda in the refrigerator and Freezer to control Odors, I often wondered what the bowl was in there but she manages the Frig ! She changes the Baking Soda every 3 or 4 months and puts in new !!! Hope your Ice Maker works so your Honey has Ice to chew on ! Gary

It took a while but it appears you've licked another problem...master of all trades. I'm happy for ya, cuz, nuthin' worse than the smell of rotting meat...peewwwwwwwwww! Love like yours is such a blessing. I'm feeling pretty blessed myself.

I love my ice too - crushed ice. Chick Fil A sells a bag of it for $1.65 and lasts me a couple of days and it is wonderful!
