Norcold fridge..green light blinking every ten seconds or so

Standard-issue Norcold RV fridge...runs on either battery & propane, or shore power... Switch has three positions: (left) 'automatic' (senses whether on shore power or battery/opts for shore power when hooked up) // (center) 'off' // (right) 'gas' Panel has two lights: A green light (when operating on any source) and, below that, an amber light (when operating on propane---lights up in conjunction with the green light) ' On our trip this past weekend, the green light started blinking, once, every ten seconds or so. The site we were on was slightly unlevel side-to-side...the issue seemed to go away when, as a test, I ran in on propane on a level street when we got home Am I good? Was this issue connected with a levelling problem? Thx in advance

That hitch is higher off the ground than I remembered!

Just learned a painful lesson about aging and idiocy Hooking up TT today in preparation for return leg back to home...have the standard Reese round bar...to those familiar, we understand that bars need to be connected on both sides of the hitch so what do I do, when done with one side? With my almost 55 years of life experience? Do I do the sensible thing, and walk around the front of the truck to get to the other side of the hitch? NO!!! I step onto the hitch, to lift myself up and over.....so, what happens??? (drum roll).....I catch my toe under the breakaway cable or something, lose balance and fall straight onto my lower leg....now I have 'road rash' that makes it looked like I dropped a motorcycle or something...about 4 inches across and 6 inches high, completely scraped and I KNOW better!!! I'll often say, "I USED to jump off pickup tailgates....but now I step down gently" Putting this out there for benefit of others....not as some sort of a 'clickbait' thing

Life span of TT with heavy use

We do at least one 'big' trip a year (2000 mile round trip or more) with the trailer, and the rest of our every-other-month trips are generally round-trip length of at least 500 miles Many people I've talked to basically pull their unit to a nearby campground every so often to enjoy a beach weekend or something (my house is ~90 miles from South Padre Island) I keep in mind what one RV salesperson said in a video...when moving down the highway at speed, the trailer experiences a combination of earthquake and hurricane. The trailer, although pretty new, is your basic 'stick and tin' construction, with wood framework Sooooo, to the point: 1.) Is there any particular structural point to keep an eye on? (example maybe the framework around the air conditioner tends to crack over time with heavy use, given that it's supporting a load....anything along those lines) 2.) Is there a particular structural thing that, if it fails, the unit should or will be totaled? 3.) Even with proper maintenance and inspection, everything breaks beyond economical repair at some point....any idea time frame before the trailer is likely to just shake itself apart? Thx
