When the temperatures get down to freezing and below, I run the furnace in my RV. I have heat strips in my two overhead AC units that I use to keep the chill out, but all the plumbing is in the basement and they don't help warm it up down there. Therefore, I run the furnace, which has floor ducts and it keeps the basement from freezing. The furnace sucks up the propane and it got down to less than a quarter of a tank, so off to the neighborhood RV park to get it filled up. The park is about three miles away, although there is one closer, I am not sure if it sells propane and I have been getting my tank filled at the same place for years now, even when I had my class-C. I even stayed at that park a couple of times. The last time was when I first got this diesel pusher and wanted to try it out but just in case there was a problem, didn't want to go very far from home. That way, I got familiar with setting it up for a couple of days and if I forgot something, I could run home in the Jeep and get whatever I forgot.
When I was getting ready to take it over there to get propane, I unplugged it from the fifty amp plug and then pushed the "IN" button on the cable winder. It only pulled for a couple of seconds and quit. Oh, oh, my house batteries must have died. Being plugged in for all those months must have boiled the water out of them. I hope that is all that is wrong. Today, I will try to get the batteries filled up with distilled water. On my old motor-home, I had purchased a battery filling system. You just stuck the end of the hose in a jug of water and squeezed the bulb until it got hard and you couldn't squeeze it any more. That worked great, guess I will have to get something like that to keep my batteries filled and in good shape. As soon as it warms up a little (it was freezing when I got up) I will go out and try to fill the batteries. I will take some small tubing and try to cyphon water out of the jugs into the batteries. Anyway, that is the project for today.
Although it is on the cool side, it is a crystal clear day and it is warming up fairly fast. Now, you all have a great day, you hear?
