Roadtreking: How to handle the smell of hot electrical stuff while RVing

From the bloggers at Roadtreking.

Almost every trip we learn something and have something new and different to fix. Multiple opportunities to learn new stuff.  Mostly minor stuff, but sometimes not.

On our last big trip, most everything worked perfectly until we started toward home. The chassis blower motor quit (in the Chesapeake Bay Bridge Tunnel). The weather had finally warmed up, and now we had no air conditioning. The next day the freezer temperature unexpectedly started to rise – and we found we were out of propane. We ended up running the Onan generator for two hours while driving to run both the coach air conditioning and the fridge.  Can’t let the ice cream melt.

It was a challenge to find propane (thanks All Stays Camp & RV app), but we finally did (during rush hour of course). We figured our regular mechanic could deal with the blower motor when we got home. We stopped at a familiar campground and plugged in for the first time in 10 days. The Progressive Industries power monitor said the shore power was good. Time to walk dogs and have a relaxing hour before dinner.
