That's great. Could you please provide parking coordinates and when the concrete guy is going to be there. I also want no carpet up front.

exploringusa48 Cheap Handling Fix and Georetown. The CHF is best looked at by googling Ford F53 cheap handling fix. Its in a bunch of forums. I'm a newbie and haven't done it yet.

Got back today from our first camping adventure! Even took the 3 cats along. Overall, LOVE the 351, super spacious and the cats had a field day! We were parked at at state campground, and our spot was next to a woody natural area with many birds, so the cats all thought that was great fun to watch from the dash once I opened the front shade! Good times.
It was colder overnight than we expected, so I popped the heatstrips on and they kept us comfy, but the air was super dry and I had a terrible sore throat when I woke up, plus AC blower is LOUD when it comes on. Anyone have any suggestions? We were thinking small space heater perhaps.
Off to bed, I will try to post a bit more tomorrow!

I use fireplace and small space heater. Not familiar with "heat strips".

This time of year you might be able to just crack some windows open and turn on the fan in the bathroom roof vent. Really pulls the air in the windows. But the AC is always loud. I guess its a toss up. DW likes it cool at night and vent/windows solution works well so far. But during the daytime, especially if you are in the south anywhere, its gonna get hot.

Pictures!

Took me a bit to get them off the phone- couldn't figure out how to post directly to the forum so I sent them and then attached.
First one is of the rig in front of our house while we were loading.
Then, two of our cats taking a snooze on the couch (Edgar and Carlos)
Sophie and Carlos on the bed in the back
Finally, the actual outside camping shot (and if you zoom in on the window, Edgar is watching!!!!)

I thought I took more pictures, but apparently it was just in my head!!!

The heat strips are a space heater type that is in the AC unit itself, but it will only heat up the MH by a few degrees, and because it is thru the AC unit, it uses the same blower so it is VERY loud when it comes on and off.

I was thinking an actual space heater would be quieter perhaps, or maybe I just need to figure out how to turn the blower on low.

Didn't want to turn on the full furnace, as it wasn't completely freezing, just a bit chilly in the AM.

Thanks!

DW and I picked up a $16 portable heater from Walmart when we had a 33 ft TT. We transferred it to the 351 on our first trip out and left the furnace in the MH on at 65 degrees. The furnace never kicked in, the heater maintained a comfortable 68 which amazed me since it was 34 outside. I'm trying to save propane. The little heater is the size of a shoebox and has a cutoff switch if it tips. We are still learning the "how to's" and best practices of having an MH.
