Meanwhile, what are these references to a beeping fridge about? I missed something.

Howdy Myron. I started a thread on the beeping fridge issue separate from this one. Basically the fridge is telling us the door is open when it's not. Forced us to get some ice and load the cooler overnight so we could shut off the fridge in order to sleep.

Fridge beep solved for now by unplugging the fridge light. Reace came through again!

We're off to see Cascade Locks, the Bonneville Dam and the surrounding area today. Cheers all!

Yes, unplugging the light is just a matter of removing the cover and pulling the plug. The not so obvious part was figuring out that the light switch was causing the alarm.

If you want a preview of some of the area waterfalls, check the pages from my stay at Ainsworth last year.

I am always amazed at the amount of commerce that moves up and down the Columbia River. 2 very busy Class I railroads on either side of the river and I-84 that has lot's of truck traffic.

So the guy who said the switch and the light cover stopped the beeping was right. As far as what is wrong though to cause it, no telling. Replacing the switch may fix it or not. We will have to wonder about that for a while. Hope you can get it fixed.

Actually, you may want to forget "fixing" it!

Exactly. Don't really need a fridge light. If it's too much hassle or time, I probably won't bother. I could see if Dometic will send me a new light and switch and see if that works, but I'm in no hurry to go to an rv repair center.

Lazy afternoon at the campsite. Temps in the 50 range and very light to no rain!

Just went for a nice hike. This gorge is steep!
