Freezer check

It is recommended that you put a single ice cube in a paper cup and leave it in your freezer and check it daily to be sure there had not been a power failure at the campground while you were away for the day, or that nothing else has happened to cause the frozen foods to partially thaw and re-freeze again.

If the freezer has been working well, the ice cube should retain it's original shape. If it has melted and re-frozen the ice will be puddled in the bottom of the cup and chances are that the quality of your food in the freezer and refrigerator will be comprised.:winky:

Another good trip reference fridges is to cut a one inch diameter hole in the front of the door, thereby ensuring that the light does go out and is not wasting valuable power. :thumb:

Neat, that answers The Eternal Question. What size hole do you suggest and did you bother to put a window over it ?

Does the hole need to line up accurately with the lightbulb ?

When I bought my van the fridge bulb was dud, so Brownhills sent me another free of charge (as they were out of stock) the invoice attached said it was £16 :Eeek:, how can they justify that price.
If it goes again I won't bother replacing it so it won't matter if it goes out or not.

Less space.

To get back to the ice melting problem, the paper cup takes up too much space !!! Take the screw top off the wine bottle ,(dispose of the wine in the usual manner !) fill with water and place in freezer, when solid place a small metal object ( nut or coin etc.) on top of the ice. Voila !! if thaw happens then the object is on the bottom of the cap. Job done ! :thumb: :ROFLMAO:
