I do not have that photo and we can find very little wifi. Paying here in Jasper for it. You should find such a photo hopefully though under that It's Friday thread.

My advice for all is to buy a binder with plastic sleeves and fill it with the manuals for all of the appliances ( and even read them ). I have to constantly refer to the propane change-over operation.
I've also printed and saved trouble-shooting advice that I've picked up here from other members.
I keep all receipts for service and accessories in that binder as well.

We had them try to get the furnace going several times and they could not. Finally called a tech who said that we had to hit the reset button. To get to it, the grill had to be removed.

We get camping and the inverter works, then does not. We still do not know why. No inverter. Maybe there is a reset place?!! Anyone know?

So no matter what, you are likely to not have something work. Most things are working very well. Shower head no good. Will have to write them about that. All in all, the trailer is great.
What inverter do you have? the Samlex 1500 Modified Sine Wave has a GFCI on it which has a reset. Says it's a manual reset but the unit must be powered on to do so.

We had our "transfer switch" go bad. The inverter was doing its thing, but not getting to the outlets. There is a reset switch on the inverter, but you need to use push it way in to make it work. If you hear it "running," try plugging in something 110 volt directly into that to see if it's the transfer switch instead of the inverter.

Glad to see you made it to Maligne Lake, it is one of my most favourite spots in the world. The scenery nearing the far end, assessable only by canoe or kayak, defines the term breathtaking. Every time I paddle there I am in awe.

Did you take the tour boat to Spirit Island, Cathy? It is gorgeous in there too.

Did not go to Spirit Island. Maybe another trip! Not trying to do everything as we have only so much time, and errands and needed rest interfere. Seen more stunning scenery by far than we have seen putting everything else together. Truly amazing. You are so lucky to be nearby. Spending more time in Jasper than Banff on your tip. Good idea.

We started with "incredible"on the first day and every day seems even more so. Hard to believe that so much is in one region. We have seen "breathtaking" a few times by now. I really like the Miette and Bow Rivers also. Athabaska Falls were very impressive.

Do not know where any reset switch is located. You mean under the bench? We will hope it is not the transfer switch for now as it did work a couple of times and is brand new.

While lots of great beauty abounds worldwide, I certainly do feel lucky to have so much, so close.

We will be driving through Jasper tomorrow evening, and camping just inside BC somewhere. We are headed on a 6 day canoe trip on Murtle Lake. Looking forward to that.
