According to the weather reports, tonight is going to be the coldest @ 25. I know... I'm a wimp. I have a 75W trouble light in the bay below the lavatory, another in the wet bay and a couple of old 60W ceiling fixtures in the electric bay and the bay below the kitchen plumbing. Maybe over-kill, but better than having to fix it. Dunner hates plumbing. Doesn't hurt to be over-protected. He also hates cold feet and stays home when it's going to get this cold.

I moved the remote sensor from the fridge to the bay below the lavatory.

Don, yours sounds like an electronic problem. Hit it or try wiggling the connectors.

It's still ~40 out and the two sensors read ~50 and 58s.. I think the lights will work.

Very unusual to see this.....................
(dark blue is a freeze warning)




Usually see this...................

Dark pink is red flag (high wind/fire)





Maybe Dunner needs to stud the tires on the sand rail?

Studs are good..........





It's all Al Gore's fault!!!

I guarantee that chart is wrong last night and tonight! Here in Vancouver WA (7 miles North of Portland OR) it got down to 26 last night, the high was 32. Right now (9:00 pm) it's 28. Just checked the heat light in the wet bay and it's doing just fine.

I have a ceramic heater in the back pass through bay where my water tank is and it is just set to the lowest temp setting it has. We keep checking our MH and the temperature remains above freezing temperatures. Good thing we are not planning on going anywhere for the next little while.

Forgot to check the nearby mountains for snow. Made myself a sticky note for the morning.

I drove a previous rail in the snow north of here. Different...

According to my sensors, my lights are working.

Ok, that thing should be parked under a palm tree. This is just WRONG!

Hmmm... ab"normal"ly cold temps in the Nest of The Snowbird, eh?

I'm sure it's just an aberration, since climate change is just a myth!

It takes a lot longer to freeze a full tank.

My wet bay is below the toidy. I put a 75w camp light (large 10inch aluminum housing) in the wet bay. Boom!

"When what freezes over?"
Hell freezes over when the Vikings win a Superbowl.

I should have checked here before - now I'm a little more worried. We are in Cave Creek - north of Phoenix. A little higher and so a little colder usually. We are connected to electricity, live here full time, so we keep it cozy inside. We use the furnace and a small space heater. The only think we've noticed is the ice maker apparently froze, hopefully not damaged. We haven't done anything to "weatherize", only left water dripping a couple of nights. I guess we've been lucky. Hopefully this will be over soon - yes I know most of us are cold- weather wimps here.

Looks like a couple more nights below freezing. Heat rises, but I would think some of it would radiate towards the tanks.
