Thanks...something to think about. I like your argument for the res. fridge with it's better insulation qualities and not needing to keep it on all the time.

Agree with all that others have said about the washer/dryer and ref stuff. Nothing said about the water mold and damage. I'd be more concerned about that then the appliances at this point in your project. If the rest of the coach is even close to what you have found you need to consider and address that before going further. Perhaps you have?

Trust me, we have.
Anything that is moldy or water damaged is coming out. Before the replacement wood, insulation, appliance is installed, we will be certain the culprit/problem has been remedied. I suspect it was due to the roof vent missing it's cover for a long time and a pile of water entered that area.
Also the fridge might have gotten damaged and dumped it's ammonia, thus creating the rust below the side vent. And not out of the realm of possibilities yet is the fresh water tank could have some sort of leak.
We haven't filled it yet to see.

OK, so we found the original combo for our safe this evening! YEAH!
Only one little problem....the last step/ number is "right turn 1 time to STOP.

What is that?
There is no mark labeled STOP, so what could they possibly mean?

Please help us solve this mystery.

You don't have to have clean clothes but you will always need to eat.

On my safe, When I get to the last number for the right turn, it automatically clicks or grabs the last number when you get close to it. It releases inside lock.

I would assume it would means you turn right (which drives me nuts it's clockwise or counter clockwise ) until IT STOPS meaning at some point you can turn no fiurther . I have a lock on a gun safe that works like that when you get to the last number it will turn no further . At that point you push in on the dial and the safe will now open. That may not be it but it's the only thing that makes sense to me.

Thanks! I think I was going one revolution to far on each number. Will try again in the morning with a fresh set or eyes and patience.

Hey Girl,i have had lots of safes,i buy them at auction and we have had a few Birds too,with safes.
I have never been able to open a single one of them,with the combo.
