Saturday Ronda dropped me off at the rig to check for mouse kills and to run the genny. We know they visited us because of the trail of poop all over the rig. So I bought the enclosed mouse traps and used the 100% sure mouse trap food which is peanut butter and we put 4 of them where I know the little bastards go.
When I got there today there was no sign that they were still around, all traps were still loaded and ready to go. So I fired up the genny and was going to vacuum when I realized we had no power. I checked the panel and it was showing 3/4 on the house batteries which means the genny wasn’t charging them. When the genny is running the charge shows 100% so I knew something was up.
I went into the bedroom and checked the circuit breakers and all looked good. Uh oh…. what the heck could it be? I sat there a few minutes, the genny was running smooth but perhaps there is a breaker outside as well? Outside I go and sure enough, on the right side there is a 30 and a 20 amp breaker. The 20 was tripped so I reset it and went inside, still no power. Hmmmm wtf?
I go out again and from the genny itself I turned it off then waited a minute and then turned it on again. The system waited about a minute and then suddenly I had power inside again. WHEW! I was able to vacuum everything so if the mice come back I’ll know it.
Last, I may or may not have left the roof vent open a few inches and it’s raining. The rig is facing straight west so I should be fine until I go back up today to verify, I think I remember closing it but we can’t take a chance.
That’s all, have a great weekend everybody!
