Love heated mattresses!

It's 42 degrees this morning and got to give some kudos to these heated mattresses.

Turned them on to high (6) a couple hours before shut-eye last night and it was toasty. Even through the memory foam toppers.

On a side note, my dad and I are at Peninsula State Park in Door County for our last weekend of walleye fishing on the bay of Green Bay. Kind of a boys weekend. Since it's just us two, the camper has become a combination man cave and fish camp. Life is good.

Peninsula is great! My sister and BIL were there last week and got one of the sites next to the water. They said it was the prettiest campsite they ever had. These sites cost a bit more and can only be reserved a month in advance, I think. It's the Weborg Point Campground. Check it out, if you haven't already. They're lucky though....they're retired, so they can stay away from the weekends when the rest of us working stiffs have to camp!!

We're in Plymouth, about 12 miles from Sheboygan. Two hours from Door County. Have you ever camped at High Cliff? One of my personal favorites!!

I grew up in about 45 minutes south of you in Grafton. We live near Delafield/Hartland/Oconomowoc now.

Weborg is great but really hard to get into now. We use to love that cg the most in PSP, but we find we now need to make reseevations 11 months in advance to get more than a night or two. Sometimes we get lucky with a cancellation, though.

We are in Tennison this time.

We've yet to camp there, (just bought the camper this year) We always stayed at the Evergreen Hills Condos at the south enterance to PSP. We're looking to get up there at some point next year with the camper...... I'll keep the High Cliff info.
I know where Plymouth is, it's where Sargento is

We swear by our heated mattress as well. Amazing how less often the furnace is used when the mattresses are keeping things warm under the covers.

Our last hybrid didn't have them so we used heated blankets instead but heat coming from below rather than above works so much better. Also, the heated blankets had a bad habit of disappearing from my side of the bed, can't do that with a mattress.

We usually boondock, but last September we stayed at a park with electric in CO. My wife usually gets cold at night sleeping on the bunk-end, even with the furnace running. The heated bunk ends made for the most comfortable and restful night yet!

yep, the heated mattresses are great. we would have never ordered them, since we live in California.
but the trailer we bought already had them.
man, were we glad it did when we first used them.

we rarely have electric hookups but when we do, we love using them.
