The new Interstates are ridiculously expensive.
I couldn't afford to buy one, that's for sure....my 06 will be paid off this year, and I am glad of that.
The older ones were more like campers, which is what we wanted. The new ones are too tricked up for me.
So, I am south, but apparently not south enough. Warmer here than home, but last night and another night have seen temps in the teens.
A first, hanging out this far south...but still north-ish, for south....we were always on pretty much a dead heat to the Gulf Coast.... perhaps Texas, or just Louisiana and the Gulf, moseying east-ish... then working our way eventually up into South Carolina.
I thought I would do things differently this year....
Have been in night time temps in the teens a number of times over the years, never had a problem with anything freezing.
I knew it was going to drop last night, thought I had all the bases covered, but forgot to turn on the tank heater. There is also a bit of a wind chill.
Everything seemed fine when I got up, then....no water to the toilet. I always turn the pump off at night, so didn't notice it for awhile. Sink and water pump are working fine.
Outside, I could see a small puddle of clear, water-turned-to-ice, underneath the Interstate.
I turned the tank heater on for an hour or so while I went to the grocery store and did a couple of other small errands. Tried to dump when I returned to the campground.....seems frozen up.
So, back at our site, topped off with fresh water, tank heater on.....and, I wait.
Not supposed to be as cold in the foreseeable future. I will watch it and try to dump again in a day or two. It's not that full, just thought I would while I was out and about. I'm good for a few more days.
Will have to see if there is repair-worthy damage. Sigh.
Just when I think I have it all figured out....
