After having such a beautiful day I never expected the night to get so cold. At one point I turned off one heater and just let 1 run. I was very uncomfortable trying to sit up so gave up and went to sleep. I woke up at around 12:30 am and it was freezing cold. I didn't want to turn on the other heater so I burrowed deeper into the covers and went back to sleep. Next time I woke up the cold was awful so I turned on the other heater and burrowed back into my nest. Woke up again to use the potty and I'm sure I heard it turn into ice cycles. I realized at that point the other heater was blowing cold air. Great really needed that. I had taken my sweats into the bed with me and I was really happy not to have to put cold sweats on in the morning. At that point I knew it was time to go home.
I needed to go dump the trash and my little chair for sitting in the camper also broke from being forced to open in to small of a space. I put the trash in the truck and jumped in to drive over to the dumpster and no start. Battery was dead. I did get a jump from the camp host and off to dump the trash. I left the truck running and loaded up as fast as I could. Got home and was sweating from having on the sweats still. I just grabbed Fred out of his crate and the food in the ice chest and headed into the house. First thing was a nice hot shower and clean clothes.
I had breakfast late enough to call it lunch. I had a raging headache and started to drink lots of water. But finally took something for it and took a short snooze. I felt much better after that.
I only took a few things out of the camper but nothing is all that important in there anyway. But each time I went out I started the truck, no problem I will see what happens in the morning. I may just need a new battery, it was in the truck when I bought it and it was used.
BTW just to let you know how cold it was! I didn't buy ice I froze a couple bottles of water and a few of the blue freezer things most of the food I brought was frozen. The water bottles had very little water in them as they were still frozen. My salad that wasn't frozen was this morning. All the food that I brought was still frozen.
Now please don't start telling me to use this or that and I shouldn't use things that run off the battery. These things do not run off the truck battery they run off the deep cycle battery and yes I have a kill switch. I think most people who read my blog are RV'ers of some kind so you know what I am talking about but I was so surprised how many people did not understand what I was talking about on other travel sites I think most of their travel is by plane or boat not RVs.
Good Night All
