We did find out that we do, in fact, have the artic pack. And we have the tank heaters. DUH, the rocker switch is right there on the panel for it. DH knew but I hadn't noticed.

Supposed to be warmer tonight...."just" 32. Drove up to Petit Jean Mountain today...ran the Scenic 7 Route. Still *lots* of leaf color, even this late in the season.

The jury is still out, for me, regarding cold weather camping. Fred The Wonder Dog is *loving* it, but hey, he's got a nice fur coat!


Hey I wonder if this might work "Honey I'd just love to go winter camping!!!!!!! But I need a nice fur coat!!!!!!!!"

This heat tape is good for metal or plastic water lines. We held off on using anything so far...as the temp is significantly higher than last night. If it drops more we'll just put it (the heat tape) on the metal spigot.

I've checked our lines quite a few times and so far we're good to go. Temp tomorrow night is supposed tobe even higher.

We did add a small ceramic heater in the bathroom tonight.....DH wasn't excited about the chilly toilet seat or the less than toasty bathroom this morning.

Actually the TT got too warm for me last night with the fireplace and the furnace running. I was kickin covers off!

P.S. We do have some "rubbertex" we can use between the heat tape and the water lines if need be.

With the (Tank Pad Heaters) why not fill the F/W tank and forget the (Hose & Hydrant) and the heat tape? Youroo!!
