And, Mexico time change is tonight, so we will manage to get an extra hour sleep so it's not as early as it sounds.
We are going into the mountains to an area about an hours drive from here to pick wild potatoes! The hour drive, and then an hour hike to get to the spot. Who knew we would be looking for wild potatoes? This should be interesting!
Cleaned the burner in the refrigerator today. Of course all of you RV'ers know that you're supposed to do once a year, so I don't need to remind you. The number one cause of refrigerator breakdown at the dealer I worked for was simple lack of maintenance. Especially important if you run your fridge on gas a lot.
And it is simple. Turn off the gas valve, and remove the gas line from the burner. Then, one screw removes the burner itself.
All that debris in the bottom of the burner tray ends up falling into the burner itself.
The burner itself...just give it a scrape with a wire brush
All this crap fell out of the burner. Imagine how much would fall out after three or four years? Eventually, it won't have a decent flame, and then at some point it won't light at all.
And, the propane truck came by today, and ours was getting low. It cost 350 pesos ($27) to fill our tank which is about half of what it would have cost in Canada. Cost was 5.96 pesos per litre. (46.5 cents per litre, or $1.76 per gallon).
Off to bed for an early morning on Sunday!
