thank you, Rose. I've never used propane tanks before. I always grilled on charcoal. The man who sold me the trailer said I need to get the tanks filled at Walmart or Ace Hardware. Then just turn them on. So I think what I don't know how to do is unhook the tanks and hook them back up. Hmm... I've used the one pounders for years. Maybe they are similar.Yes to this.
When it’s down in the teens, Carla, it is too risky in multiple ways to try to rely only on space heaters.
Run your furnace, at least at night, and during the day if it is still bitter cold and there is no sunshine to warm things up a bit.
That’s not only why you have it, but it’s important to know everything does what it is supposed to do.
I sat out a blizzard a couple of years ago, 5 inches of snow, in a parking lot with no electricity.
It was very cold, I had the furnace only and had thankfully gotten my generator serviced right before I headed south.
I didn’t think I would ever be warm again, but nothing froze up, including me.
If all else fails, be a cautionary tale.
I'm in my daughters house thawing out and enjoying the heat. I'll bundle up and explore the propane tanks next.
BTW, granddaughter and I are stumped on how to level the trailer. It has an electric jack and levels all around the trailer, but we couldn't get the bubble in the middle either direction. Should the stabilizing jacks be down before we try leveling it? Or after it is level?
