Fourth of July in Crescent City

Over the fourth of July this year we traveled to Redwoods National and State parks in Northern California.  As we started to research this trip we quickly found that Crescent City shot fireworks off over the ocean near the Battery Point Lighthouse.  Living in a landlocked state, this was simply something that we couldn’t pass up and so the trip planning began.

Killing the Phantom

When we put our trailer to bed for the winter we pull the batteries off the rig and put them on a float charger in the garage.  During the season we leave the batteries installed and just make sure things are turned off.  Imagin our surprise when we came to get the rig one day and the tongue jack wouldn’t move.  In fact, nothing would work and after some quick troubleshooting, I found that we had a dead battery.  I was…
