Romany Rambler was hooked to the car last night and parked up on the spare section. We were all ready for a quick get-away in the morning joining the commuters for a trip down to the Hutt Valley.
Our fridge had given up on us and refused to work on gas during our last rally away. That wasn’t good at all – especially when it was only about 6 months old. Phone calls were made, the Dometic agent was spoken to, and it was agreed that we could take our problem down to RV Dreams in Lower Hutt for a check up as the fridge is still under warranty. Parking was at a premium in this little street, so Robin was asked to back the van up to the doorway. We left it behind for Rick to check it out and did a few messages.
On our return a little later Robin went inside to get the verdict. Yes, Rick advised, he did have a little trouble lighting the fridge. So he pulled it apart and checked out the components. The problem, he said, seemed to be with a valve sticking. With a little adjustment, the fridge works like new again. But if the problem does reappear again, we will need to return for a replacement valve. Luckily it was nothing major – so let’s hope it stays working as it should. After all – there’s another trip away coming up soon.
