Saturday was a productive day!
Time with Kathryn blossomed into a work session with Michael which resulted in a completed Microwave installation! Cooking in the coach is hardly the same as cooking in a gourmet kitchen but at least we have returned to full cooking functionality once again.
It’s actually been a couple months since the stupid thing quit on us. Having it shipped to Milwaukee so that I’d have another set of arms to help out with the install was a good idea. I know know a more about our coach than I did before.
It’s amazing to me how simple things can be; and also how complicated they can be. We followed the attachment directions in reverse to remove the old oven. But little did we know that — there were NO bolts attaching the oven from the top (the supposed cabinet above). In lieu someone at the Holiday Rambler factory had decided to put some sheet metal screws through the side of the oven into the wooden side pieces. As we were pulling the oven out of the opening we were hung up on something but had a hard time figuring out just what the problem was. I think our alternate safety attachments will be just as efficient and easier to find if this oven ever needs to come out of the coach!
While Mike was with us we looked carefully at the refrigerator installation. We’re sticking with the smaller (10.7 cu ft Whirlpool) and I’ll place the order Sunday.
Thanks for stopping by and I’ll talk with you tomorrow.
