What do you do when you are in the boondocks and your house lights go out?
Always be prepared! Things happen.
My converter recently went out and I was in the dark for a few minutes. But at least I was prepared.
1. Buy at least a 400 watt inverter: It plugs onto your coach battery with cables. It works for lights and for your lap top too. I have a white extension cord I stick through the window to plug into the inverter. A little tacky but it works.
2. Buy a small lamp with minimum wattage or buy florescent lights to plug into your inverter! If your coach lights go out you still have light.
3. Have a package of small tea light candles on board. It is amazing how 3 small candles light up the darkness and add romantic ambiance.
We are so far removed from candle light. Did you know you can use olive oil to make a oil lamp? Take a piece of string, a paperclip, a small jar, and little olive oil and light it. It burns clean.
4. Have a few flashlights handy with fresh batteries. Put them in a place where you can find them in the dark.
In any case it is always good to be prepared!
