Power!

It’s now been just over four months since I moved into my 2nd Gypsy Rider. To date, I’ve only been in campgrounds in this rig and have done no dry camping. Next week, this will come to an end as I will be highway bound. Due to this change, I had to address an issue I had put off — purchasing an inverter.

When I am traveling, as I mentioned in a previous post, I like to make use of RV friendly travel centers. Of course, to park overnight (and relax several hours before lights out,) a power source is necessary. I don’t know what it is, but I love being able to pull into a Love’s or Flying J, turn on cable TV and prepare a wonderful home cooked meal! Because I’m not a fan of lengthy generator use, I opt for utilizing inverters. In the Rialta, I added a 1000 watt inverter, and it served me well. This time, I bought a 2000 watt that will also allow me to use my microwave, if necessary. As is my usual M.O., I ordered from Amazon and had it shipped to my current campground.

I received the package yesterday, and today, I visited Delightful Days RV where they did a very quick and tidy installation. They were able to place it neatly inside one of the storage cabinets and drilled a small opening for the extension cord. I had previously purchased a 25ft. heavy duty cord that will easily reach any point in my rig. I also plugged in a small clip-on fan that I use quite often.

This is the second time I’ve had work done there. I highly recommend them if you ever find yourself in need of service in the Florence, KY area. Hint: ask for Butch, he’s terrific!

So, when all is said and done, I’m ready to hit the road…and I’ve already identified my first Flying J :).
