Door frozen

Last night in Benson Arizona we had rain and snow mix.
Got up to 22 degrees. Went to let the dog out to do his
ritual and WOW.....found the door frozen.
Had to crawl out a window and the DW passed the dog out.
Do not want to force anything in this temperature, so just
sitting here watching the sun get up.

The door is surrounded by ice as is a lot of the coach.

Went through a freak ice storm (freezing rain) in OK a couple years ago.... Power went out in the camp ground. Sure glad I keep up on genny maint !! I had to break the ice off the genny grill, but the little hunk of gold kept us warm... Watched people with slides trying to get them in. Thought the guy next to us was going to burn up the starter on his genny,(class C) but it finally fired off... Even if I talk DW into getting a TT someday, I'll still carry a genny with us .. Learned something that day....

Yes, I was fortunate.
A couple of MH's could not get their slides in
and one guy tried leaving with two slides still out
about six inches.
He said that he thought they were in because they stopped moving.

I am leaving today and put the slides in, hoses away, etc, last night.
Only have to unplug the power.

Wanted to make sure no problems with hydraulics

Glad you and the pup made it out the window. I'm sure that I would break a few body parts, if I could even get through the window opening.

Never thought of the door freezing shut. I'll have to remember that one. Glad you made it out. I know my dawgs are ready to go in the early morning as well. I think its cold everywhere. It was 30 deg this morning on Del Mar beach at Camp Pendleton.

Automotive washer fluid in an old spray bottle works good to thaw out frozen things without refreezing. Of course you have to be on the outside to be able to apply it. I've used it on cars, latches and even exterior house doors. I used this trick on a man door to a detached garage frozen shut from freezing rain.

Be careful some brands in the states that don't freeze like Florida actually do not have freeze protection so read the bottle.
