After checking all the breakers I learned that the outside plug in is on the gfi circuit.

Spent most of the day with it.. Finished installing the replacement fridge vent fan which included actually wiring it into the 12v system. The previous one just used a 12v accessory plug. Added a small switch to the accessory wall plate for on/off in addition to the thermal sensor installed by the fan. Also installed 2 Heng's Vortex powered fans - a single speed one in the bathroom and a multi-speed with forward/reverse settings above the dinette.

Did full-on winterization. Normally I just blow the lines, but this time I decided to go ahead and pump in some anti-freeze. It'll be a long time before we get the trailer out again, and temps are dipping quite low around here lately. It took 3 gallons, but I probably could've gotten by with a little less...

Those carbon monoxide/propane detectors draw power. I put a switch on mine so when we are not camping, I can switch it off.

Today, since we are getting WARMER weather for the next couple days, I am going to check the battery fluid and top it off if necessary.

Re caulking the shower base. The caulk is having a hard time curing even with a small heater in there. It's close to freezing outside.

Replaced Scare Light Bulbs

The original 1156 bulbs burned out a long time ago and I just haven't been motivated to replace them since I used those fixtures so little prior to the burn out. A few days ago I ordered a couple of these https://www.cabinbright.com/product/...-pendant-bulb/.

Wow is all I can say. I ordered the 4100K color which works great outside and with the snow on the ground a couple of days ago "really WOW".

I used one of them last night when company was coming over. I should have done this a long time ago.

Had a few minutes this morning so swapped out the Atwood analog thermostat for a digital Honeywell Pro 1000-series heat-only unit. I've seen several posts about this mod so thanks to all who posted about their switch Less than 10 minutes from start to finish....
