The sunshine state . . . [music]. . . alright guys we arrived we actually . . . pulled in late last night i forgot to . . . mention we're working on our christmas . . . picture we died morgan's their purple . . . kinda looks lavender pink but just to . . . change things up this is hell's gate . . . recreation area here . . . oh it was just pouring down rain they . . . said something like six inches of rain . . . fell yesterday and it was miserable to. . . drive in rain all night last night but. . . this is how close we are to the water. . . here and i think today is actually going . . . to be a really great day. . . here's the official sign says tate's . . . hell state forest rock landing . . . recreation area managed by the florida . . . forest service we found this free area . . . on free campsites dotnet and we already . . . logged into free campsites dotnet added . . . a couple pictures and told them no you. . . are wrong this is not a 3 campground and . . . they are very strict about that i'll . . . walk up here and give you some more . . . information i will say it was nice to . . . have this covered area when they rolled . . . in last night because it was raining so. . . hard to picnic tables 2 raised bbq . . . grills as well it's no biggie it's just . . . the kind of make an effort to have the . . . most accurate information and that. . . website a lot of people just roll in and. . . then they just post something and say oh. . . it's a free campground it worked fine . . . one night that i got out of here well i . . . can't really get away with giving that. . . kind of misinformation to upwards of . . . ninety thousand possible viewers on my . . . channel so when you first come in right. . . here it says right here overnight. . . camping requires a permit. . . it's got a phone number right here so i . . . called and it was not easy what you have . . . to do is call you can only make a. . . reservation over the phone that has to. . . be done over the phone in order to make. . . a reservation for she says three sites. . . which we can't find because this is all. . . just open not quite sure where the sites . . . are but anyway i told her where we're . . . going to park then you have to drive out . . . of here and go to waldron creek where . . . there's a ranger station to physically. . . get the envelope put your payment in . . . then come back and you're supposed to . . . put the ticket on your camp. . . site and in your driver's window so it's . . . not free and i don't think it's worth . . . telling people that they can camp here . . . for free and then get hundred-dollar . . . fines or something so you don't gotta . . . pay a lot you just gotta pay attention . . . and not believe everything you hear . . . online this is nice though and see how . . . quick those clouds are already rolling . . . past us i think we're going to see some . . . blue skies today. . . that's awesome no running water here no . . . dump station no power or hookups or . . . anything just one little hole in the. . . ground toilet i just found the campsites . . . by accident so the water and the spot . . . where we came in is way over there and. . . then they have three campsites right . . . here this is what you're paying for. . . so we booked site 41 here so we will . . . have to move the rv over here but. . . there's no view of the water and i don't . . . know actually we might just stay there . . . and use the day you said well my camera . . . away tilted just stay here and use the . . . day use area right here for the daytime . . . and i guess we'll park our rigs on our . . . approved campsite but the overflow . . . parking here by the waters the prettiest . . . that much rather have a view of the . . . water plus i can tilt the solar panels . . . and get solar park here during the . . . daytime not sure if i remember to tell . . . you guys we are also kind of finished . . . the partition between the kitchen and. . . the bedroom in the rv. . . so now we have the tv mounted on the. . . back put a piece of wood on the back . . . window so that we can sit against that . . . and watch tv before we go to bed and . . . also separates the kitchen area from the. . . bed and i want to do a custom backsplash . . . on that or something later but for right. . . now it is functional and it works i'm. . . happy i'm going to set up some stuff. . . here at on the picnic table on the . . . laptop get some work done out here i . . . stay though also about the cooler idea . . . so in the meantime just like when my . . . toilet crapped out on me once a couple . . . years ago had to get a portable toilet . . . to hold me over while i was waiting for . . . the repairs to get done for the fridge. . . sake we did stop at walmart along the . . . way before we got to tates hell . . . campground here . . . and went down the cooler section in . . . order to get a cooler that was going to . . . be big enough the prices were like forty . . . dollars for a cooler that i'm pretty . . . much only going to use for one week or . . . so whatever anyway we found a different . . . alternative because i have have solar . . . and so what we found was an electric. . . cooler that is run on dc power actually . . . the one we got is a coleman think it was . . . like 90 bucks or something and it runs. . . on either dc so you can flip in your . . . cigarette lighter attachment to run it. . . or also comes with an ac adapter you can. . . plug it into the wall or something like. . . that went with that one because it was. . . only double the price of just a normal . . . cooler that i would still have to go out . . . like today i have to leave this . . . campground and go get ice tonight to be . . . able to save the food we've gotten there. . . so since we're getting lots of solar up. . . here went ahead and got that electric . . . cooler. . . it's nothing like the domestic that i. . . had a year ago in birth of the van . . . this one is rated to only keep it 40 . . . degrees cooler than the ambient. . . temperature so if it's 80 degrees inside . . . the rv it's going to bring it down to 40 . . . theoretically but i doubt it here in the . . . desert and it's in the sun 215 degrees . . . it's still going to be hot in the cooler . . . it's not going to be effective but this . . . is just a temporary fix. . . just testing out we put some food and . . . stuff in there so feel normal again and . . . we had known over in the panama city . . . here in a couple days for that diagnosis. . . so we're going to make it through this . . . little bump in the road as far as the. . . refrigerator is concerned we're gonna . . . get this figured out . . . no biggie so thank someone for trying to . . . help me diagnose the fridge problem in . . . the last couple videos just want to . . . share a little update here in the back. . . of the fridge open up this compartment. . . here and you got this 5 and fuse right . . . here which is not blown hand works there. . . is power right there this whole board. . . has power their homes are in the right . . . spot. . . nothing is fried or damaged through here . . . all these are making solid connection so . . . again at this point this is really about. . . as far as i can go with diagnosing it is . . . all lights up with propane the outlet. . . works here. . . nothing happens with the entire cooling. . . system up here so if i had to make a bet . . . before we get the diagnosis i would go . . . ahead and say that the cooling coil is. . . shot on this fridge so to get the panama . . . city i'm gonna button it all up . . . they asked me to put it on propane 48 . . . hours before i come in there so for . . . whatever reason we're just going to burn . . . some propane just to prove it so that i . . . pull in they can see that it's hasn't . . . cooled at all it's not even trying i'm . . . just a little worried about that concept . . . i even told them i was like yeah i don't . . . really feel comfortable just letting it. . . burn propane when it's not actually. . . working and cooling like that they. . . assured me living in sherman they're . . . like it shouldn't be any problem keep an . . . eye on it. . . ok but we did this decide to stay here . . . for the daytime tilt the solar panel get . . . as much sun here in this opening area . . . and then we'll go back to our campsite. . . for the night here a little bit really . . . nice day though . . . hard to believe how badly it was pouring . . . down rain yesterday and last night. . . before i forget here's the the box that . . . came and we got this at walmart coleman . . . doesn't say how many let's say this is . . . it holds 48 cans can tilt at each . . . direction anyway keep the box and . . . receipt just in case . . . [music]. . . [music]. . . guys hopefully my next video is from . . . panama city with an update / diagnosis. . . on the fridge situation until then. . . florida still nice this time here guess . . . have a goodnight seen a couple days . . . hey guys this is jack mcgee cat on this . . . servant eric thanks for watching our . . . youtube channel here on arvine if you . . . liked the video give us a thumbs up . . . below make sure you subscribe check out . . . all our other videos and keep following . . . us on the road. . . thanks guys . . .
