RV Heating 2011 -- Electrical Capacity

Me and the '96 Camaro at Nashvegas

A few years back when I was still doing the race car thing,  I trekked off to Nashville Superspeedway for a weekend of racing.   I took the Old Girl and my 28′ enclosed car hauler with the ’96 Camaro in it.  One of the unexpected bonuses to the trip were the parking accommodations.

The 1.3 mile oval Speedway has hosted 2 Busch races and two Truck series races annually since it opened in 2001.  It has never been the site of a Sprint Cup race.   I got to park the Old Girl in the

Unexpected Consequences of the Frigid Temps

I woke up at 4am Saturday morning.  It was 56 degrees inside the RV; 12 degrees outside with a 16mph wind out of the north .  I had gone to bed with the Mr Heater Little Buddy turned off,  the Suburban furnace was set at 50 degrees.  Both electric heaters were running.  A trip to the bathroom  — and NO water.  Crap!  So I tried to shake off the fog of sleep and figure out what was going on.  The Old Girl is facing east.  The drivers side was north and getting the full brunt of the north wind.  I
