Do you guys have basement model campers? I'd be afraid in really cold temps that the basement wouldn't get enough heat to keep the pumps etc from freezing.

Sounds like a great trip.....if you want to just E-mail me a few pictures I'll post them for you; send me a PM if interested.

I do not have a basement model. As far as the Pics I have to learn how to cut and paste. That is my problem. Thanks for the offer.

I do not have a basement, like the new TCs. My gray and black tanks hang below and outside the bed of the truck. My furnace has a duct going to the tanks. I confess, with a thermometer in the tank area, I have only had freezing there one time. My TC was in front of my house, with no heat, and the temp was less than 20 degrees for over a week. I put antifreeze in the tanks, no more problem.

If I were camping in cold climates (below 30 degrees) I would have a thermometer in the basement to monitor the temp.

I also installed the Wave 3, after taking Reddogs advice. Works fine for the camper, love that its quiet and uses less propane tham the furnace. I also used the furnace as a backup and for warming the holding areas.

I also ued my mattress heater so after four days I had to run the Kipor. It charged the battery but at 8k feet it wouldn't handle the microwave. If I had put in the high altitude jet in it might have done better.


narco,
What size is the genny?

Thanx, Bill

Narcodog,
We missed you by 2 weeks. Spent 5 days at GRL. They closed the campround Sep 4 to remove dead trees. Got a little snow but had a great time hiking and fishing.
Good luck and good camping.

I saw where they had closed the GRL. I boondocked about two miles south the of the campground along the river. I only went up there to get some water.

....even if you post no additional photos (a shame), the images you have managed a link to are excellent!

Into Trip Reports it went [emoticon]
