Extended Stay Question

Sooo I'm about to embark on my first long stay in sunny FL. Looking at staying for a month or more at one site . Checking websites at rates and they state that you pay for your electric. On an average, what will an electric bill be for a month? I know there's alot of variables to consider but on an average.

Electric is included for stays of less than 2 weeks. Longer than that electric is on your dime.

On the upper end, at Excapees RV Park in Livingston, TX, July 2012, temps near 100 F, humity about 95%, 31 foot fiver, 12.5 cents per KWH, 50 AMP service with two ACs, 15,000 btu and 13,500 BTU in the bedroom, $5.66 per day average for four days. I would think that this is on the high end?

so, if the convention is any time over 2 weeks is on your own dime, seems to me it is time to move on at day 15

Call or email the RV parks you are interested in. They should have some idea. Or find out who supplies the local power and inquire about rates. One thing I am not knowledgeable about is, do you get your bill directly from the power company or do you get it from the RV park? The later would cause me some problems unless the monthly site fee was really cheap.

I don't think the idea of moving on at day 15 is necessarily correct. You need to do the math.
