How's the weather doing
That's it, rub it in Ray. my floors are thin and spongy. It's like walking on a wet mattress. However, thid morning I did buy a heater for when on EHU and an extra sleeping bag for when not. I've just parked up for the night in lovely wooded campsite at West Glacier at the entrance to the national park. It has EHU so am hoping to have my first warm night in 5 days. It has a remote control so I should be able to adjust it from my nest above the cab.raynipper said:This was -15c Andrew near Grand Canyon. But with heated marble floors, engine block heater, 50 amp supply and a fan heater plugged into the next site, we kept warm. :lol: :lol:
Having just got back from 3 weeks touring Nova Scotia and Prince Edward Island I found the MH connections easy to use. CanaDream didn't supply the water connector so it was fill the water tank when needed. (They said something about the direct connection being phased out, however every site I used all had connections.)andrewball1000 said:Having had the first three nights without Hook up, I now find myself at a site where I had to pay for it anyway, so I used it as a learning experience for the differences. Interesting.
EHU - unplug the shore line from the onboard genny, plug in to the post. No probs
Water - different to UK. Connect line directly to mains pressure and to the mains inlet on the MH. This bypasses the tank and water pump and you have mains water when you need it. The fresh water tank has a separate filler to fill up.
Blackwater - ugh. Very different. Instead of a cassette you have a long length of 4" ribbed pipe. (Imagine the nooks and crannies in that). This is connected directly and permanly to the sewer drain. Problem is getting a continuous fall as any slump will hold water. I see many Heath Robinson methods to support this hose to achieve this.
I am sure that this connection is benificial if you are on a long stay, but for an overnight stop its much easier to use a cassette. Also less cost for the campsite.
More later. The fan on the warm air heating has packed up so its extra layers tonight despite being on EHU
