It was four a.m. and I was sound asleep. I sleep ever so well in this new RV.
I wasn’t sure if it was a dream or reality, but I thought I heard it….
Ever so quietly. Was it real?
Up I got still mostly asleep and I hunted with my ear all around the coach but in my grogginess I heard nothing but the sound of the heat pump humming in the lounge.
Climb back in bed.
There it is again. “Peg, do you hear it?”
“Huh?” — She was still asleep.
“I’m sorry, I woke you…”
“Do you hear it?”
I laid my head back on the pillow and moments later in the still I heard it again.
Back up to search.
Look at the sitting area. No phones beeping. No computer beeping. No battery backup beeping. No TV beeping. No CO detector beeping. No smoke alarm beeping. What is it. Oh, maybe it’s the dehumidifier… No, that’s not beeping either.
But, standing next to the dehumidifier I hear it louder, and I’m starting to actually wake up now…
THE NORCOLD REFRIGERATOR!
It’s beeping at us…
You can’t see it in this picture because we opened Norcold the Door and the visual warning cleared itself along with the audible beeper, but the fridge had been telling us that the door wasn’t fully closed. ” dr” — I forgot about the Norcold. And the nice little warning lights they provide: No AC, No Propane, Door ajar, Nice when you know about them, annoying when you forget..
The new coach is fitting in nicely. (Pun Intended — it’s just the right size for our spot. No excess capacity here.
And, if I look forward through our messy lounge while sitting at the dining table you get a little sense for the added space we now enjoy.
You probably can’t tell from any of the pictures but we face the challenge of replacing another Analog TV with Digital. Having gotten accustomed to the better picture quality on the LCD TV’s in Journey this looks really blurry, but until we get around to it we’ll struggle along. The TV in the Bedroom is already LCD — the dealer put that one in before we saw the coach — the spot for it had been empty when they took the online pictures. We’ll sort it out little by little. But it’s definitely becoming home.
With all the little idiosyncrasies that ANY home has.
Thanks for stopping by and I’ll talk with you tomorrow.
