I woke up a couple of times feeling too warm, but that was probably my Lab, she likes to cuddle up against my back.

I'm not sure how long it took from 12.27 volts,I was too busy playing in the water, but by the time I went up for lunch, the LED indicator was showing that it was trickle charging. I guess it helps to have a trailer that is insulated well, with a great performing furnace and LED lights to put a low load on the battery.

It was 250, free shipping.

Sounds like a one dog (or two tiny dogs) night. hehe

Your deer photo reminded me of the 4 turkey I saw 20' from our home yesterday. Don't they know Thanksgiving is less than a month away?

as a teen, a half century ago, I and 5 others camped around central/southern California (Yosemite, Sequoia, Kern River, Lakes Arrowhead and Big Bear, Angeles Natnl Forest) - shelters were Pup Tents or none, sleeping under the stars

one Winter at Big Bear we had 3 tents, placed end to end, in/on the snow and it snowed so hard at night(s) that the caved-in sides of the tents restricted turning over while sleeping

the only heat we had were our sleeping bags at night and a campfire during the day (along with our bullet-proof teenaged bodies) - was fun.....THEN

now I only go where I can take clothes OFF to be comfortable - layering on, never again.....Bill

Felt very comfortable in camper. 34 outside. Since there was electric, I used ceramic heater inside. Kept heater at 55. Left roof vent open a little Used sleeping bag. In morning I used the heater's remote to warm it up to 60. very pleased.
