Hope all is well on the rainbow with all.

Today has been a work on "Jenny" day. She is a dirty girl so tomorrow she gets a bath, her compartments get emptied and re- organized, and scrubbed. And if Barb gets all that done before dinner time I will take her out instead of asking her to cook. Hey I ran the sweeper today and I'm tired!

Anyway I will go back to my corner now cause my bride just glanced over my shoulder and told me to ....... ... .... ..!!!!!

Don't believe anything Herb says, especially about being insightful and having any wisdom.

Herb, I tried running the electric sweeper today, but try as I may pulling that starter cord - I just could not get it going. Earlene finally told me to get out of the way. She did some magic trick with the cord and the sweeper came to life. Guess I don't have to do that chore anymore.

A hearty welcome to Linda. Linda, when you get the alternative way of communications be sure to ask for my theme song.

I think Linda may be trying to get tips on Cold Weather living. The one thing I think is a must is a heated water hose.

Other than that - be ready to go through propane - and possibly get an electric heater of some sort. Etc...
I would add from what I have read is that if the older model's black and gray tanks aren't enclosed and get heated via the heat from the house, you might need a heating pad affixed to the bottoms of those so you can dump them if you are going to be out in the really cold, like anything north of Oklahoma in January....

Riverview park 2300 water St. Yuma. Very near Winter Haven.
Thanks a lot for your reply. When I said a Riverside park, I meant it in a generic sense. The one we were looking at on Google Earth was in fact River's Edge, north of the Colorado and in fact just inside California. I've just found the one you mentioned and will call both to get a price comparison. I do have a hunch though that CA will be more pricey. We plan to spend all of March there and into early April before moving over to Fortuna for the rally.

While I'm on, thanks, Don and Sandy, for coming over to the Centre of the Universe (it says so on the water tower) and the Philo Tavern last Friday. Sue and I always enjoy your company. By the way Don, I forgot to tell you why our plane from Willard was cancelled. It was hammered by a humongous hail storm up at O'Hare and grounded. Some of us know what that's like and I shudder to think what the cost to repair the ERJ would have been.

Anyone know of a unit that's dirt cheap.

this is what I am looking for at present.

Dwayne, before you suggest the DIY mode remember my welding is not know to last until the power is turned off.
Harbor Freight has the hole hitch for 79 bucks I've been using it for 2 years without a problem.

Marty nailed it.

Most of the newer RV's have an underbelly and the heat (gas heat, not heat pump heat on most models) supplies heat to the plumbing section. Adding supplemental electric heat diminishes the heat going into the plumbing section. So, if supplemental electric heat is used, go buy a drop light and a 100 watt bulb and place it in the water/plumbing compartment. If it get's so cold that the 100 watt bulb, along with the heating from the coach, doesn't keep everything above 32˚, well it's time to head South.

Thanks Dwayne, but I've got the whole setup but it came with the wrong baseplate. I already have a couple of the harbor freight style units at my disposal but I want the little hookups that can be removed when we are not toading.

The best way to winterize it is to go South. Yes, Richard, there is a South below Arkansas, and NO, as I have explained to Diane, no passport required.

Except for those amazing margaritas in Los Algodones!
But the passport is only to get back into the US.
Our goal for weather: never hot nor cold, so I don't feel so old.

You taught your mantra well ol' fearless leader.

Growing Old is mandatory but Up is optional.


I'm still searching Mexican RV places that feature great Scotch.

Larry, what in the world are you talking about??? Diane has gone high maintenance? You will have to explain, 'cos we don't get it. We think she's the most easy-going, laid back Mutant there is!
