Yes it is cold, but how many people are in there MH. We are, here in Indiana it is 13 degrees right now. Got down to 5 degrees last night. My water line froze. Had to put a second 100 watt bulb in the water pump compartment. Finally thawed out, after 4 hours with (2) 100 watt bulbs. I also have an extend a stay propane adapter. A 20 pound BBQ tank only lasts 4 days in this weather, they usually last about a week, then I have to exchange it for a full one at Walmart for $17.82. I use my onboard tank as a back up if I am going to be staying somewhere for more than one week.

I go where my work is so I don't have a choice. One more week here then to Kansas City for a week then Paducah, Kentucky for a week. It is going to be a cold winter for me.

In Chibougameau Quebec today temperature reached -42 Celsius (-40 is where the two scales meet, so very close to -42 F.) And this is not including the wind chill factor! Now wonder so many Quebec residents go south...

Yikes that is cold. Could not imagine that being a Georgia resident. Stay close to the fire.

That is because we got it all here in Oswego! There is something wrong when it is colder outside than it is in my chest freezer.

Holy Cow! I can't even imagine. How do you function?? It's in the 60s in FL, and I'm chilly.

DW is from Duluth, says she doesn't miss it at all!! Been there in Feb and stood at the harbor wall with the lake effects wind coming at me.

It's down to 34 and raining right now which is the predicted low for tonight.

You do realize that those exchange tanks have less than a full fill in them even though they are 5 gallon tanks don't you? Very expensive way to get propane. Read the label on the tank or display, they should contain 22 lbs of propane and they actually have between 17 and 18 lbs.

Yes , I know. It is true with all propane tanks. My 24 gallon on board tank when empty will only fill to 18 gallons. They all only fill to 80-85 percent of full. I think it has to do with expansion if the temperature changes. A BBQ tank size propane bottle only holds about 4-4 1/2 gallons of propane.

I work all day, I don,t have time to drive the MH to a place to fill the on board tank. I will fill it back up when traveling between jobs. I pay around $3 a gallon at flying J and just over $4 a gallon at Walmart for a tank exchange.

For me, its the price it is when winter RVing. During the summer I only go through 18-27 gallons all all summer.

It was a cold walk from the train to the office this morning in Philly. I think it was 12 degrees with a killer windchill.
