In addition to the CO detector, an oxygen-depletion sensor would be a nice idea, since you've got the trailer sealed up so tightly.

I didn't see it addressed, but since you have electricity - why not use a small electric heater (the ceramic type) in addition to the furnace? I've camped many nights (albeit never more than a week) in well-below-freezing temps, and the little heater does an ok job. Then the furnace can cycle in and out every hour or two (or 1/2 hour, depends on the wind)...instead of running constantly.

I have a couple of the little ceramic heaters. One of them has a low and a high heat setting-- the low setting uses only 600 watts, but it throws a surprising amount of heat. I use the low heat setting, the high fan setting, and the furnace rarely has to come on in the daytime.

How much?

I read somewhere that 1 inch vent opening for every 1000 BTU burning. So I assuem you would have to allow the same for fresh air coming in.

I have had up to a foot of snow piled on top of Chummy but it does not stay there long. When the sun comes out the aluminum warms up and melts the snow away. Our biggest problem with a snow storm was one night that it snowed so hard we could not get the door open in the morning.
I would rather be in a snow storm than a dust storm in West Texas.
