Hell has Changed Its Colours

Our new trailer has 50amp power (our old one was 30 amp). The 50 amp cord is THICK and unwieldy and since most parks we go to do not have 50 amp service we want to use our old 30 amp cords. Carm spent some time on the internet and then the phone where he finally sourced one on the other side of town, so we piled into the car and went for a drive. After picking up the "dogbone" (yes, that's actually what the adaptors are called), we stopped in at IKEA. Not Carm's favorite spot (hence the comment about hell's new colour scheme changing from red to blue & yellow), but he was well behaved and let me poke around.

We found the display for kitchen rails that hold metal basket/shelves and played around until we were sure we could make it work on the camper. We'll try installing it tomorrow and I'll post a picture. I also picked up a catalogue - eye candy for when I'm bored later.

This morning I worked on a post with before, during and after photos - I'll post it tomorrow morning (but beware - there are lots of photos).

In three words I can sum up everything I've learned about life: it goes on.
