Well, the gas furnace works well. It got down to 36°F last night, and with the thermostat set to 62°F, it ran off & on throughout the night. Although I kept it close to 70° with the electric heater, I want to try to save battery power by keeping it a bit lower when running the furnace. While not of interest to everyone, for those who are, overall, by morning I was down 18 amp hrs, and with recharging the laptop & iPad, listening to the radio using my XM Radio tuner, and the general electrical usage, that's not so bad. The day was partially cloudy, and with the winter sun still at a low angle, I didn't get all 18 amp hours back - right now at 5:30 I'm down 4 amp hrs. Since I have 232 amp hours in the batteries (although it is best to only use half of that), I'm doing OK.

I took a few photos of some interesting cactus & trees on my walk, as well as of the trailer & my new neighbor. Just now another Escape 17 pulled in - there are now three of us. Not keeping up with the Casitas, but we are tied with the Scamps!
