Here in the West this heat wave is apparently going to last all summer and into at least September. How are you all coping?

I had been boondocking and running my generator for the AC but it quit on me last week and I can't get it fixed until the middle of next month! Meanwhile, it's RV parks and campgrounds with electric. I drove up to nearly 9000 ft. the other day hoping to cool off and it was still hot even up there! [emoticon]

My condolences.

Stay home and crank up the AC...powered by solar. My daughter and grand children escaped Phoenix where it's 118*. The older two went to San Francisco today, where it's in the 60's.

The prospect of 4 months of heat and smoke w a month of pollen allergies on either end forced my hand. I met w my HVAC guy today about adding the condensers to my home system. I didn't think it would be necessary to add cooling at 6300', but I guess I have to.

So was this just a rant, or?? You supposedly can't find a small engine mechanic for basically a month. You know it's not blown up (or you wouldn't be tanking it to a mechanic presumably). And you're going to spend basically what it would cost to buy a new generator to stay in fhu campgrounds?

Not being sarcastic, but you have options. Less expensive options, including getting a little resourceful and getting your generator fixed...

Even buying a generator would be an almost free endeavor. Just sell it, or your other one next month.

Yuma, what do you expect. Move somewhere cooler. Hawaii is great never too hot and never cold.
