Another visit to Camping World!

Friday, February 9, 2007

semi-overcast 0 °F

We got up bright and early this morning to hook up the RV and take it over to Camping World for an 8am appointment to get our heater fixed. Bottom line is that after 3 hours they still weren't sure why the heater didn't work, but they thought that it needed a part and they can't get the part til next Wednesday. Joe and I spent the morning in their customer lounge doing homework. And of course we had to browse their store and ended up buying another $100 worth of RV accessories, including a portable electric heater. Now, you're probably thinking that it's good to get an electric heater since our gas heater/thermostat is not working. WELL, after 3 hours of not being able to find the problem with the thermostat and ordering a part, they replaced our battery that was not holding the charge as well as it should be and PRESTO!!! the thermostat and heater began working. They have no clue why this happened and suggest we still replace the part that we ordered. (In case you're curious, all of the work was covered under our warranty -- thank goodness).

So we will be back next Wednesday. We're going to try to extend our stay at Fort Wilderness 2 days.

We get back to Disney, have lunch in our RV and head to EPCOT. It's open late for Disney Resort guests today so we see most of Future World despite the late start. We spent 2 hours in Innoventions with Joe seeing and trying out all of the exhibits. Jere got to try out a Segway (those riding machines that you stand on and lean different ways to make it go), while Joe & I went to play a game about fire safety. The state requires all homeschoolers to have fire safety in their curriculum, so this was a fun way to fulfill that requirement (for the record, the team that Joe and I were on won the game!).
