One of the many reasons we recently moved from Tucson up to Payson was to find a place where we could park all of our toys {Car, truck, Motorcycle, Class C, Cargo trailer and Rzr} on our own property... which has long been a fantasy of mine. We found the right property and for the last couple of months have been scrambling to make it our own.

Today my electrician came and installed a dedicated dated 30 amp outlet {in its own box} right below the breaker panel on the corner of the garage. This is about 15' from where I park our 24' Class C in the driveway. The temperatures dipped pretty good last week so I went ahead and winterized but had to run an extension cord from the garage to the coach utilizing a 20 amp adapter {definitely a band aid solution} so that I could plug in my 1300/1500 watt AC heater. Set on 1300 and low fan it keeps the coach around 50 degrees even when the outside temps are in the mid to upper 20's. Since the converter will have power as well I can run the tank heaters as much as I like.

Now the coach is plugged into its own dedicated 30 mp circuit. I've drained all of the fresh water but keep a gallon next to the toilet in case it is needed {though can't imagine why it would be}. [emoticon] I have plenty of propane in the tank so the furnace is ready to go also, we are having our kitchen remodeled at the end of the month and it will be functionally down for the better part of a week. I plan on doing all of our cooking and eating out in the coach that week and the space heater and the furnace {35,000 BTU's} will be getting some work to support our presence.

I just had the driveways asphalt paved a couple of weeks ago and it is a huge improvement over the dusty, slippery {think 900# of motorcycle}.Here is a shot of the longer, north driveway looking out to the street from the detached garage {aka Man Cave"}:

I always dreamed of having my very own private RV site right here at home and now we do. Best of all out is surrounded by tall pines and Oak trees and sits at 5,000'.

Hope that 30A outlet has a secured breaker somewhere upstream that can be disabled?

Alas, we have no pool...but do have a nice Jacuzzi out back on the gazebo {I'd like to meet the guy who built the gazebo, the headers are 4 x 10's} next to the BBQ, and the smoker {life is good!.} The kegerator currently holds Landshark Lager but that is subject to change...

Thanks for all of the kind thoughts and yes we are having waay too much fun.

PS: As you may have already guessed this is my bride... of 50+ years who just celebrated her 70th birthday and she still loves to ride with me every week on the Indian Springfield.
