This morning, the outside temperature had dropped to 3 degrees F, with another load of snow. When we got up this morning, the RV temperature was what we expected, it was in the low 60’s F.
Bruce got up and went to the bathroom and he discovered the bathroom didn’t have any cold water. Luckily, we had put a gallon of water next to the toilet to use to flush the toilet when traveling. The bathroom did have hot water. He checked the kitchen sink, same thing, no cold water, but it did have hot water. He checked the dishwasher and it had hot water.
Bruce bundled up, went outside, and checked the basements. They were warm. He then posted in the Riverstone RV Group on Facebook to see if anyone had ideas of how we could get the cold water running.
The consensus was we have an ice block, which wasn’t a surprise. If the block is in the line, we should be okay as PEX tubing holds up well to the expansion. The concern is if the ice block is in a fitting. The fitting could break. This would mean we wouldn’t have any cold water and we would have a water leak.
One of the suggestions was to heat the area under the bathroom sink, as there is a hole leading to the basement plumbing under the sink. Bruce is trying that right now to see if it works.
Wish us luck, as we try to get the cold water running! Fingers crossed we don’t have any broken fittings!
Meanwhile, Nox is keeping warm by sleeping on top of the red blanket hanging over the couch to rest on top of the furnace venting system.
