I managed to roust myself out of the semi-warm RV Saturday. I know I’m whining, it’s not as cold here in central Arizona with 47 highs and 27 lows as other places. Just seems the older I get, the less I tolerate the cold.
Didn’t have a whole lot of choice but to go out when one propane tank is empty and the other is going on two weeks. That may not make a whole lot of sense to non-RVers. I don’t turn on the propane furnace very often, maybe just a little in the morning and right before bed. If used all day that thing can suck down 7 gallons of propane in two days. I learned. I do run small electric heaters most of the day and night. Can only run two things at once on the 30amps currently plugged into. Turn one off in the living area to either use the microwave or turn on the heater in the bedroom. I keep the door closed to the bedroom all day as there’s just no sense in heating a room that isn’t being used. OK, so the toilet seat feels a mite chilly. Just make it fast.
Peeples Valley, where I get propane, is only about five miles away. Business wise smaller than Yarnell which sadly no longer has a fuel station. Mountainaire Mini-Mart offers about the same grocery options as our Yarnell Grocery and that almost closed about a year ago. Times are hard in our small community of less than 2000.
It’s a short and scenic drive out here in the middle of nowhere. Maybe now that I have my wheels back I’ll try to get out more. Naw, it’s cold outside.
