Florence to Crescent City, more wiring fun

This morning we left the Maple Lane RV Park and Marina to head for Crescent City, CA and the California Redwoods.  My alarm went off at 6am so we could get an early start.

We’d packed up last night so all I had to do this morning was disconnect the hoses and electric, connect the Jeep and pull away.

This went well until after hitching up the Jeep I went back to check the tail lights that they were working, and they weren’t.  ARGH!  I spend 30 minutes testing connections with my voltmeter and basically decided I was not going to be able to fix it myself.  So we hit the road.


Two hours later we arrived in Coos Bay, Oregon and found Bayshore Auto RV Repair.  These guys were really friendly, got us in right away with a mechanic who quickly got us up and running and back on the road.

Apparently something went wrong with the wires in the connector for the magnetic lights that caused them to disconnect and then short, breaking the fuse for the trailer tail lights.

I was just so pleased that they were able to get us going so fast.
