We only stayed at Capital City RV two nights, but the stay was rather eventful!
First and foremost, Alabama is a beautiful state! The views along our route were a hidden treasure that I didn't know existed.
We learned some pretty big lessons at this park. When we pulled into the site, we went through our normal set-up routine. We tried to plug in the power plug, but the breaker kept tripping. The breaker wouldn't us to switch the breaker on. We called the office, thinking we would be moved to a new sit.
That didn't happen.
Instead, the park owner came out to fix the breaker. He replaced the switch, and all was well... or so we thought.
We didn't have any issues throughout the stay until the last night. I stepped outside to work on a little laundry and smelt burnt rubber. We looked all around the camper, but we were certain the smell was coming from the neighbors, who were on their very first RV trip.
The next morning we went throughout the pack-up process and found the burnt rubber.
Apparently, the breaker wasn't fixed.
Our surge protector melted from the excessive amperage pouring from the breaker.
While having a surge protector wouldn't stop the problem from happening, I am thankful we had some layer of protection between our camper and the faulty breaker. I really think so much more could have happened, but I'm very grateful that it was a minor dilemma.
Now, on to the fun stuff...
On the property, you will find a paved walking path around a pond teeming with wildlife. The owner mentioned he's observed a small alligator lurking around the path.
Colten made friends with a little turtle; it was adorable! The little guy swam out of the water and into Colten's hand. Check out the pictures above!
Katie decided she wanted to make friends of her own. So, she got a stick and built a fishing pole. They decided to collaborate to create something a little more successful. They got bread from the camper to use as bait.
The kiddos never actually caught anything, but watching my two littles work together was positively precious!
