We were watching TV Tuesday night while parked at the Walla Walla Elks Lodge when the power went out. Earl went outside to check power at the pedestal...all was OK there. Flipped the breakers on and off several times, but that didn't help. Tried the generator...it runs just fine, but doesn't power the rig. Everything worked fine off the inverter.

On Wednesday, when we got to Spokane, we went by Freedom RV, a dealer/service center we'd used back in 2004 on the Lazy Daze, although their location has moved from Sprague to out in the valley off Barker Road and I-90. Because we had done some piddling around checking out a couple of mobile home parks, we didn't get to Freedom RV until around 2:00 PM or after. They couldn't fit us in that afternoon, but would get to us first thing in the morning when they opened at 8:00 AM, so we just pulled off to the side of their lot and spent the night.

At first, they thought the problem might be in the transfer switch, but the problem turned out to be with the inverter. I don't understand all the technical aspects, but it had locked out electricity from coming into the rig...apparently because it wasn't secured securely enough and some of the connections were loose. At any rate, nothing major was wrong (whew!). While they were at it, we had them replace the under-sink water filter and the flap on the stove vent which had broken.

Once everything was fixed, we had lunch, did shopping at Costco, and checked out another mobile home park.
