Hauled the trailer down to Peterborough yesterday to have a technician look at the fridge and water heater.

One gadget I use and appreciate when pulling the trailer is my backup camera. I connected it to the running lights so whenever I want to check on the hitch or what's behind me I simply turn on the running lights and get this picture. Saves a lot of frustration when hooking up as well.

They worked for almost two hours checking the fridge and water heater and tracking down a propane leak. The water heater was fixed by replacing two temperature sensors. The fridge needs a new electrical board. Unfortunately it is located on the bottom of the fridge which means the fridge must come out first. The replacement part isn't cheap so not sure what we will do. As this is the end of the camping season here we can wait until the spring to decide.

The weather here has turned warm going up to 28*C but feeling like 36*C tomorrow.

Thanks for stopping by and safe travels everyone.
