Interstellar Orchard: Heat and battery woes

From the bloggers at Interstellar Orchard.

After leaving Caprock Canyons on the Oct. 6, the last five days of my 1,300 mile journey from Wyoming to Texas wind to a close with little worth blogging about.

It’s not that I haven’t wanted to get out and explore because I certainly have, but the weather is getting in my way. I’ve been hiding out in the Casita with all of the windows open reading because it’s been hot here in Texas. Often over 90 degrees hot, and that’s not comfortable for hiking and sightseeing when you’re traveling cheaply and don’t have ready access to a shower or air conditioning.

But I do have a problem that I’m hoping some of my more mechanically inclined readers might have an answer to.

On Oct. 8 I had an appointment at the Casita Factory to get my electric stuff looked at. I didn’t mention this at the time, but when the service department replaced my water heater last April, they did something that messed up my battery charging. My battery died on the way to Wisconsin to drop Julie off and I quickly realized it wasn’t charging through shore power nor when towing.

A look inside revealed a green wire that wasn’t hooked up to anything and I thought that was the culprit. When I contacted Casita, I was given instructions on where to connect it but that still didn’t fix the problem, so then I made plans to bring Cas back in once I got back here to Texas. By April I’d already signed on for Amazon in Haslet so I knew I’d be back.
