Really!


Honest!



Nahhhh!



Heating and RV in cold weather just another example of the unexpected challenges of RV living.

Good luck!
LOL! Why go to all that trouble? Just toss some logs into the shower and turn it on. Then adjust the hot water so the HWH keeps up.

Very true, just trying to get a general idea. Don't want to go out in the morning and come home with no gas and dead batteries. So far it looks like I should be able to get a weekend without a problem. Say I park on a Tuesday evening and pull out on Friday morning I shouldn't have a frozen 70 pound chocolate lab. If I wake up Friday morning with her plastered against me I will know the furnace didn't kick on, LOL! She will be trying to get under my blankets to keep warm.
