RE: 120 days and counting

180 days. But electricity was connected to the house today. Trailer plugged in.\ THAT changes everything. Should be out of the trailer in the next week. It's over! 185 days total. Last 2 weeks I had electricity but no water. I am now sleeping in the house.....but my appliances only show up today. So for now.....the trailer is my kitchen.

Looking good knobby! What kind of siding are you doing? Bill I'll be using Maibec wood siding. Of course, like many things during COVID.....on back order. https://www.maibec.com/en/wood/products

RE: Suburban Furnace

I am positive my propane is on. I always have trouble getting the furnace to cycle on the first time. I've learned that running my stove top burners gets propane into the lines faster than the furnace ever could.

RE: Thoughts on the Cost of RVing

In the process of planning a trip next summer out to Glacier NP, Yellowstone and all the NPs in Utah. About 3800 miles, round trip, and at least 30 nights. So, I just read an article in Barrons predicting much higher gas prices after the election. But how many SMILES per gallon???

RE: 120 days and counting

Nice car and even nicer "cabin"! Sounds like fun. I've built a house in the woods and a couple highway projects living out of a trailer or camper and it was awesome. Like a long term camping trip! I think it was more fun when it was 90F back in July. LOL. Now....more of a challenge.

RE: 120 days and counting

153 days and counting! Got through a couple of 22F nights managing the generator / baseboard heater, furnace and hot water heater. Bathroom tap froze for a bit....got it thawed out. After the first snow fall I decided to retract the awning. It had been deployed since June 1 and I used guy lines to angle it one way so rain water would go that direction. Well it seems one side got a little stretched out and now it won't retract cleanly....rolls up on a slight angle and won't completely stow. I'll look at that in the spring. Looks like I have another 30 days to go before the house is move in able.

RE: 120 days and counting

Adequate batteries, adequate solar panels...no generator needed. A lot of good MORE solar panels would be doing right now as the ones I have are now covered.. LOL https://i.imgur.com/Sgo8ECol.jpg

RE: Adding underbelly weather protection, is it safe?

I have a propane gas line running through about 50 feet of my house to the kitchen stove....legally installed as per building code. Pretty sure it should be ok in your trailer.

RE: 120 days and counting

“and dump my gray water behind the trailer.” Hopefully I won’t be the camper after you. The objective of a solar system is not to need a generator except for AC. The failure of an inadequate solar system is proven by the need to run your generator every day for an hour. Everyday that it dropped below 40F....which has been maybe 7 days total out of 125 days. And I have yet to run my AC.......I enjoyed the summer heat.

Don’t need to worry about camping near it as I doubt the OP would invite you to his property anyway after your post judging him. Lol Yup....he he's not invited...but my trailer spot will be the future host to a Christmas Tree Grow Op. LOL https://i.imgur.com/ffnxvedl.jpg

RE: 120 days and counting

Good news is....I've roughly calculated how many days I've camped in the trailer since acquiring it 5 years ago, divided by purchase price, and I'm down to $55 a night. LOL.

RE: 120 days and counting

Adequate batteries, adequate solar panels...no generator needed. Who's asking? Most of my camping is fair weather. Running my generator for 1 hr before bed when it's 30F doesn't equate to more batteries and more solar panels.

120 days and counting

120 days and counting in my 22' trailer. June 1 onsite. I started running my generator to run a baseboard heater before bed.....but other than than I have survived with 2 40W solar panels charging my 2 6V batteries. I'm in the process of building a house North of Montreal. One of the rules is that you need a porta pottie onsite. So I've been using that.....thus the trailer hasn't moved. I get my water from the lake and dump my gray water behind the trailer. All good....but I have another 6 weeks to go.......brrrr.....
