    I recommend that you use the propane if you have a heated underbelly because that will keep your tanks from freezing whereas the electric heaters will not circulate the air into the underbelly and storage areas. You can keep this down to a minimum and you can use electric blankets and throws to keep your body warm.
    Also, I highly recommend filling your fresh tank during the warmer part of the day and then putting your hose away before you get ice forming in it. It becomes a chore to take it out and put it away daily but it's better than throwing away a split hose because you didn't put it up. If you have a heated hose you can also cover it with pipe insulation as well. But if you don't have a heated hose just put it up each day. The same holds true with the sewer line. I was camping at the Grand Canyon once in the spring and we had a gorgeous day but the night was a hard freeze and I didn't realize that it was going to get that cold. I didn't disconnect the sewer hose and it froze. Of course it had a lot of black water in it and when we went to pack up it was solid. I had to throw it in the back of the pickup and drive away with it solid. Well as all good black water stories go, it melted, and went everywhere… Needless to say we got to the next stop and it was an ugly mess. I washed that truck three times before it all went away. Anyway, don't do that. Close the sewer pipe or disconnect and drain it when it is warm before it freezes.
    Ugh… I hate to remember the poopy lessons sometimes.
    All the best, Pat

    I would never try to heat using just power, it’s cheaper to just burn money to stay warm. Use the propane furnace, that’s what it’s for. Most RV parks that offer winter camping charge for power so propane is cheaper. I’ve camped in as cold as -35 Celsius and never froze a water line. You shouldn’t heat using your oven, propane produces a lot of water and that will cause condensation in your ceiling and you don’t want that.

    You traded for a Class C and sold the 5th wheel ? Love the Jeep, too. You guys are so cool… You are both appreciated. Thank you for being real and for sharing your experiences. Blessings.

    Not sure what you meant by bringing you fire extinguisher to you local fire department. We can tell you if the extinguisher is the right size for your application, whether or not the extinguisher needs to be charged or how to properly use the extinguisher, but no fire department (that I know of) will recharge a public extinguisher or sell extinguishers.

    Be careful with thermal blankets in emergencies. They are only good for warmth if you don't start sweating, that can cause hypothermia.

    Great tips guys! I live and camp in western Canada in the winter a fair bit. Everything you've stated applies until it gets really cold. Sometimes the pack-it-up option is best! I did notice one little mis-speak (verbal typo :-)) when you were referring to the smoke and carbon DIoxide detector… carbon MONoxide is the quick killer, though both are products of combustion and both are dangerous. Good old fashioned hot water bottles or rice socks heated in the microwave can really take the edge off the cold too. I enjoy your channel! Keep up the good work.

    Heating to 78??? Even here in AZ, I only heat to 70. Granted, I grew up in Michigan, and like to sleep in colder rooms.

    In north Texas a few months ago we found the perfect Walmart parking space. So good in fact we opened all our slides. Of course that night a freak snow/ice storm passed overhead. Weather called for an inch of snow or less. We got 6'' of ice/snow mix. It bowed out our slide out awnings covers and froze 3 slide outs in place. After a day of freezing temperatures and no melting or run off. I braved the wind, cold and ice climbed up on the roof and spent a few hours with a broom and ice scraper to knock of the ice. Ouch!

    We've done pretty well full timing in the winter. Biggest mistake: Leaving water connected during a freeze that froze and cracked our water filter. When it thawed, water spewed until we found out. So now, if it's going to freeze, I will the fresh water tank and then disconnect the water at the filter so the water drains out. No cracking now.

    When buying my first home I was told.
    "Always look for a southern exposure house."
    I should have remembered that when choosing an RV spot. 😬🤦‍♀️
    You guys did great with all of your tips. Thanks 👍
