Refrigerator Light

One of the great questions has always been - when you close the refrigerator door does the light go out. Intellectually interesting but irrelevant unless you are worried about the power used by the light. On sailboats we are always worried about the power. My friends on Country Dancer had just this problem and came up with a great solution. They placed their IPad inside the refrigerator and made a movie of the door closing. The first couple of times the light didn't go out so they adjusted the micro-switch. That was the purpose of the exercise. Cool.

Fair winds and following seas :)
