Yup, go figure. Brrr is right for us FL folks. I guess we'll see how good the insulation is in these things. I'm going to top off my LP in the morning so I can push as much off onto LP since we'll be on 30A service.

Our last trip to the show 2 years ago, (the first voyage in our then new DS) it got a little chilly. Being all electric, we used the floor heat on 30a, and it kept us toasty. These coaches are insulated well.

I like it better cold than hot, rather wear a jacket than walk around sweating in a tee shirt, looking for shade and lemonade.

Last year the weather at the show was hot. A lot of people was looking for RV's that had the A/C's running.

Hopefully there will not be much rain. When we went to the show several years ago it was real muddy.

I remember the last time we were there 2 yrs ago, there was a lot of rain. They had to open up an alternate entrance at the NKK campground as we had to put the jeep in 4wd to get out the original one. We ended up leaving on Sat to escape more incoming weather on Sunday only to stop in Sarasota on the way home to dump and face tornados that night. I agree though, better cold than hot for the show and please, no rain!

The forecast's not looking too bad so far. Cold a day or two but not horrible the other days (40s-60s) - no rain predicted.
