The problem, in the simplest possible terms — the only ones I understand, really — is that the RV battery wouldn’t hold a charge. It would charge up while we were driving, as it’s supposed to, but then drop dead after we lowered the stabilizers and/or extended the slides. This becomes a big problem when dry camping or otherwise not being hooked up to a power source.
Tim (and a host of online RV enthusiasts who have been there and done that) to the troubleshooting rescue!
The culprit seems to have been the control switch for the front landing gear. It was drinking more battery juice than it should have been. My understanding, anyway.

Today, we humans took full advantage of sunny skies and breezy uh… breezes, here at Guadalupe River State Park. Unfortunately, Lola’s leg injury (tore her ACL in December) now keeps her from exploring with us. We miss that. A lot. And we know she does too.
Tomorrow we plan to hit some of the longer trails in the back country section of the park. Stay tuned for a real hike, boots and all!
