    Baby It's Cold Outside !!

    Woke up at 6 this morning to -2 degrees "F" real feel , actual outside temp 10* in Central Indiana . Hasn't really warmed up yet. Solitude is doing Ok but really no RV is going to stay warm for very long with these temps. We have single pane windows but shrink wrapped the windows to cut off the cold drafts. Doing OK except for our heated water hose that we have had for 4-5 years, can't remember. It's still on but has sprang an internal leak, hose ballooned up like a big fat snake. Went over on fresh tank until we can get a new heated water hose today. Dang $175 of a new heated hose.

    Storage bay is staying @ 50 with the inside of the RV at 65* with the propane furnace set to 64*. Augmenting propane furnace with two electric heaters. At least we don't have 5 feet of snow!

    Hope y'all are staying warm!

    You'll keep replacing the heated water hose every few years (and never get rid of the plastic taste) until you either build your own or get one of these:

    If it makes you feel any better, daughter just told us it's 27 in Whispering Pines, NC. Colder than what my thermometer reads here - but not by much.

    I looked at the Weather Underground map library earlier this afternoon and about 90% of the US is in the freeze/frost zone today and tomorrow...

    Glad I went to the dealer to set up a warranty appointment (they don't answer phones very well) and they had their winterizing crew there. Drove home picked up the trailer and got that done. I was going to wait until it goes in to service this Wednesday.

    Okay, I will NOT complain about our weather near Corpus Christi for the past week after reading your post.
    But...we are anxious for this weather to get back to normal. It has been 48 deg F with rain and 22 kt winds (real feel 38 deg F) gets old fast.

    We still do our 3 mile walks daily with the dogs (we always bring our MT winter gear) but golf has been out of the question the past 5 days so it's off to the gym again today!

    We are at our daughter's home with our 310gk parked in her front yard in Belgrade, MT, about 5 miles west of Bozeman. Been in single digits every night with about 6 inches of snow on the ground. I have a diesel heater in the front generator area but my wife complained about smelling diesel fumes, so I turned it off, it will keep the basement about 90 degrees, so now back to the propane furnace and fireplace. I have reflectex on all of the windows except the two by our bed. They are a sheet of ice in the morning. My wife likes to sleep cold........... I have spray foamed frame rails and it does help. I also have a 100 lb propane bottle hooked up to keep the furnace fed.
