Where I stayed

We left Clinton, CT and drove through Ct, Mass., and into NH stopping at a Walmart in Claremont NH.  We did some shopping at Walmart and everything was going great.  We powered up the generator to warm up the electric blanket but when I shut the generator off, we lost all our 12 volt power which means that we had no lights, no heat, no fridge, and no hot water heater.  We could start the generator,, but we could not get any 12 volts to the trailer.  We put an extra blanket on the bed and went to sleep.  The next morning I bought some wire at WallMart and made a temporary connection to restore power.  We drove on to Loudon NH and went to Camping
World to see if they could help us.  It was Sunday and Columbus Day weekend so they were short handed and said that they might be able to look at our problem on Monday, but they weren't confident they could get to us.  We drove to Cascade Campground in Loudon and I got under the trailer where I found an out of sight cover which when opened up, uncovered some hidden fuses.  The main power fuse holder was damaged.  Some work with the soldering gun fixed the problem and we were once again all fixed up.
