Thursday, August 31, 2017 - Wheeler County RV Park, Fossil, OR, Day 5, 0 Miles, 448.2 Towing Miles For the Trip

A long day, most of which was spent inside the trailer. I now have lights in all the overhead cabinets. I had Escape pre wire the cabinets (although they or I missed the front one) so it was much easier than when I did the 17. On the other hand, there are more cabinets, and at only a few days from my 73rd birthday, I don't bend as well as I did when I wired the 17. In any case, the job is done, even the front cabinet. I still have work there - the wiring for the XM Radio needs to be routed through holes on the cabinet corners rather than out the corner of the door as it is now. I can't believe that adding lights to 7 pre wired cabinets is a full day's work, but it was.

If you look at the photo, you will notice 2 different color temperatures for the lights. I used long strips left over from adding awning lights to the 17 for the longer cabinets, and a pre made 22" strip for the rest. All are on switches; while many use contact or other automatic switches, I like to be able to leave the cabinets open with the lights off to help control temperatures in them.

New Cabinet Lights

While all that was going on, my slow cooker made chicken & Anasazi Brothers Cliff Dweller Bean soup. While it was good, it makes far too much for one person. I will freeze one batch, and save the other for tomorrow.

Until next time -
