As you may recall, once we switched to LED lights on the golf cart the signal lights no longer worked properly. They come on but do not flash; they stay solid. Steve Fritts told me to get “low pass flashers” – the kind that will work with LEDs instead of incandescent. Incandescent bulbs have a resistance that LEDs do not. I went to O’Reilly’s a few days ago and was given a flasher unit that, while it said on the package “for incandescent bulbs only”, the sales guy assured me from his computer screen they would work with LEDs. Believe the package, fellow!
I returned those and exchanged them for another unit that he assured me would work with my LEDs, despite it saying on the package “for mixed incandescent and LEDs”. Guess what – the manufacturer once again knew what they were talking about. I took those back to O’Reilly today and returned them. When he asked if I wanted a different one I said I would go elsewhere.
On to AutoZone up the street. The clerk there had no idea what I was asking for, but showed me what they had in stock. I could not find anything there that even said anything about LEDs. I left.
I was going to try the CarQuest store back on Peoria but the store is empty, they having moved to a new location.
Then I did what I should have done from the start – I went on Amazon and within 30 seconds found exactly what I was looking for. I ordered it and it should be here Friday. I never learn. But I wanted to “shop locally”.
Yesterday I went to the PPL Motor Homes web site to investigate selling our Phaeton using consignment. PPL is the best-known in the country and has a good reputation. They do not sell RVs other than by consignment. They are sending a booklet on how the process works. I also received a phone call from them today with a little more information.
Today I looked into consignment companies locally and after reading reviews, etc, I went to the web site of AZ RV Supercenter in Mesa. I filled out a request form online and soon received a phone call from them. The fellow that called asked for more info about our Phaeton so I emailed him the pamphlet I put together last week.
We’ll see how those contacts go.
One thing Elaine always buys at Costco when she can find it is fresh halibut, and she was successful yesterday while there. So last night we had a halibut dinner and tonight we had it again. There is enough left over for yet one more meal. We both like halibut, but I think it is Elaine’s favorite fish. She included some Trader Joe’s Roasted Potatoes and Vegetables, heated in the toaster oven, and those were great as well. And so were the ciabatta slices from the roll we bought at Wildflower Baking Company on Saturday. We love ciabatta. All yum!
