We have had a wonderful time in Tucson. The views here are spectacular.
And we have been able to see friends Bub and Winnie again and return to a restaurant we like.
It will be a great replacement to our present situation. Over the last 4 or 5 weeks our Norcold refrigerator has gone into a reduced mode. It is not dead yet but it only cools to about 40 degrees.
We asked, but Cameron could not take on a project like installing a residential refrigerator until his schedule opens up in the next four or five weeks. That does not work with our schedule.
We have an appointment in September at Red Bay, AL (Brannon's Custom RV) to get a residential refrigerator. But what to do in the next five months? Financially, it did not make sense to drive the 1500 miles to get it done now. We have to be in Spokane Washington in June so it really was not an option.
So we found a smaller refrigerator at Best Buy for $200. It has a lot more space than we initially thought we would have and is a very workable situation.
As I said, I have spent some serious hours working online the last few days so I am looking forward to catching the Masters Golf Tournament on TV. The weather is supposed to be quite blustery in the next couple of days so it will be a good time to clean up things and get packed up for our departure on Monday.
Hope you have a great weekend. Thanks for viewing the Roadrunner Chronicles! Until next time...
So Randy, is it because of retrofitting the RV that it is so expensive? Or is "residential" a special kind of fridge?ReplyDelete
Looks like you have the "refrigerator problem" solved for now....You won't know what to do with all the room when you get your new one!!ReplyDelete
I would hate to leave Tucson too...love it out there...Travel safe..
Wow! 7K for a new refrigerator seems expensive. Hope that works out well for you.ReplyDelete
What a beautiful picture of the sunset and clouds. The southwest is such a gorgeous place. Hope you get your refrigeration problems solved - no fun.ReplyDelete
Beautiful pics. We too are considering a residential refrig -- our Norcold is still working, but it seems a lot of folks are having probs.ReplyDelete
I hope you get your fridge problem solved.ReplyDelete
Seven thousand for a fridge, I hope that is a typo, if not, maybe you need to go to Lowes to get one! Even with the inverter and batteries to run it, can't cost that much either.

Yikes, 7K for a fridge! Enough to make the blood run cold!!ReplyDelete

Too bad about the fridge...it's pretty too! (as if that is important-)ReplyDelete
The Tuscon pic is just gorgeous!!!
Ouch! I know it is expensive to get fridges in an RV, but $7,000 is a lot. Glad you were able to come up with a solution in the meantime.ReplyDelete

I hope you got the chance to pass through Sedona at sonme point!ReplyDelete
Randy, sorry to hear about the "notsocold" fridge going out on you. You should be able to have Brannon install a RR for a lot less than $7000.ReplyDelete
I hope you are right ~ Brannon's estimate though was $6850....ReplyDelete
