Made plans for a winter campout in central PA in January. Just because it is winterized doesn't mean the wheels can't move.

French Creek State Park. This will be the 4th annual campout for a group of R-podders, although this year I'll be pulling my new-to-me Salem there and we've had non-pods there several times, too. This is the 2nd year we are joining up with group from a popup forum. In past years we've gotten down to 8 F, 10 F, and 2 years ago I towed for 3 hours in a blizzard to get there.

All are welcome. I'll post a link here for a posting I made on another forum, not sure if that is ok here... 4th annual winter campout - French Creek St. Pk PA - R-pod Owners Forum

When I was a kid, I camped once at French Creek SP with the Boy Scouts back in the mid-1960's. We had a couple inches of snow. We'd pinched our tent on a slope and my sleeping bag slid out during the night. I woke up half in and half out, and covered with snow!

New power outlet

Well after 3 years, decided to quite using extension cords. Installed a 30 amp RV box with burying the conduit with #8- 3 conductor copper wire. Made a home run from my panel in the garage to the pillar on my carport. What use to take me oneday to do took 3 days, just can't do stuff as fast anymore. Still use my surge protector on it that I used to use before I got my EMS.

Just an inquire from an electrician...unless I core my driveway and put a box in the concrete to plug in exactly where my coaches electrical service sits, I still have to roll out my 50 amp cord to plug into box somewhere. Of course having the correct service is wonderful but if your not living in your coach while at home....ie wanting to run the AC, all you need to do is charge the batteries and all other AC appliances will work of the standard 15 amp extension cord which I leave plugged in and available from the exact same place, second alternative on my house where I would put a box.

I just wired a separate 20a circuit to a 30a rv outlet and use the regular shoreline. Can run the ac if necessary and everything else except the MW, toaster, etc. but we don't use those at home anyway.
