Some people have large auxiliary LP tanks where we have our seasonal site. They were installed/hooked up by the local LP company that fills the LP tank for CG pool heater. They rent the tank for $5 per year and are on a 'keep full' status. You might want to look in yellow pages for LP/Propane dealers near where your seasonal site is.

That sounds like a great idea. Will pass to DH to look into.
Thank you!

We totally agree, we do both have a site seasonal 2 hrs from home and have a 2000 2363 Sunline we head to Myrtle Beach, and Lancaster PA in. Seasonal is great, just to chill, kick back and let the campfire burn. Its nice to have everything waiting for you on Friday nights, load up our dogs, and off we go. Nice "community" breakfast, we all take turns on the invites, and we also stay in hotels in the winter with many of our camping friends just to keep in touch. Come on next fri, its set up time in VA.

Anyone have any luck with space heaters? We try to use two instead of burn propane, but often trip the breakers. Anyone with a tip on this? We have 30 amp.
If your TT is like ours all the 15 amp plugs are on one breaker. If you try to run 2 heaters you will trip the breaker. I found that if I plugged one into the outlet for the water heater, i stopped tripping the breaker. I have thought about running an outlet off the AC breaker. You will not be running the air and heat at the same time.

Sounds like an easy solution. Do you have to unplug the hot water heater? Or, does there happen to be a plug near it that you can use?

I unplug the water heater and just use propane to heat the water. If you leave the WH turned off and only turn it on about 1/2 hour before you need hot water you will not use too much propane.

We have used a 100lb. tank and you can get some type of an adapter (regulator?) with the longer hose. Ask at you local camping supply store. They'll know what it is. One tank takes us through from Spring to Fall, but we do most cooking outdoors and usually heat our water with electric, so only a minimal amount of gas is used, mostly for heating. We use an oil filled type electric heater (looks like the old steam radiators) and haven't had an issue, but we only use one.

Thanks, I plan to check with a couple of deals in the area. Also have a friend at work that has a 100 lb tank set up, I plan to stop at his trailer to check it out.

I plan to run the 30lb tanks during the summer. They are easier to refill as needed. The 100lb tank to more for nov and dec. I have a space heater but thinking of getting one of the oil fill heater as to help with the heating.

I just bought a Q100 grill for out side cooking as well.

Anybody wanna talk birds?

I have never been much of a bird lady, but my neighbor at our CG is. I only know 2 things that I chose to remember from her and that I plan to implement this summer.

1. Sugar water in a hummingbird feeder attracts hummingbirds. Those I love so will do this.
2. Thistle seed in a seed feeder will attract the most stunning, playful, bright yellow finches.

Any others?
