We made it to Canada without any major issues – yay! We were able to get on the road by 2:30am and arrived at the campground around 1:30pm. We set up the trailer only to find the electric hook up was over 50 feet away. We had a long 15 amp extension cord that we were able to hook up to using our adapter, however as soon as we turned on the air conditioner it blew the circuit.
Going without A/C was not an option – it was a sauna in the trailer.
We had to find a 30amp extension cord – apparently not an easy task! We eventually found one at an RV dealership. As it turns out they are not only hard to find but are fairly expensive too – and by fairly I mean very! We opted for the 25foot one for $75, rather than the 50foot one for $140. When we got back to the campsite and hooked it up we found out it was about 4feet too short. No biggie, we figured we’d just move the trailer up a couple feet, except that it turned out we had blown a fuse too and couldn’t lower the hitch. So back in the truck we climbed and off we went in search of a fuse. It was around 9pm by the time we finally got everything working properly and in the right place! By that point we had spent about 19 hours in the truck and we were all a little punchy.
It could only get better from there and it did. We had a wonderful time with friends and family at the Milk Monkey’s baby dedication. It was so nice to be able to share that day with everyone. The next day we celebrated the Princess’s 5th birthday and the Milk Monkey’s 1st birthday with all our friends and family too. It was a great weekend…I’m so thankful to everyone who took the time to be with us during this special weekend. We thoroughly enjoyed seeing everyone! I wish we could do that more often!
We put the extra big sink in the trailer to good use!
