I don't call it anything as I don't use it (if I even have one). I find it increasingly difficult to find anything to watch on the television (down to two programs), let alone be anxious enough to record something.

And stinger is a perfectly proper and acceptable word!

This what I use and thought you were also, no fan, just heat. I leave it one 24/7 in the trailer, sitting on my cutting board on top of the stove. Keep moisture at bay, so to speak.

They also have a smaller model, which I use when it really gets cold.

I know some of you make up lots of weird words, like "stinger" for "ball mount", "frig" (a soft form of the F word around here) for "fridge". There sure are some weird folks around here. Good thing for me that I am the epitome of normalcy.
Yeah, and they say "ruff" and we say "roof" Hate most of the offerings on TV but like the news and some documentaries. Couldn't watch them if I couldn't delete the commercials.

Our trailer is parked right outside our back door. It usually has a car cover on it during the winter--so we don't go in very often---maybe once a month---the thing is just keeps humming along...

if we have a real cold winter we'll put a little cube heater in there turned down low---still don't check it that often

We have also found that a thermoplug is useful. Designed for heating wire, it turns on when temps reach 30 and shuts off at 50. The cube heater is plugged into this and this gives it much more control for keeping things from freezing but isn't running all the time.

Well ... I wondered too ... what a PVR was. Glad I'm not the only one. That is until mine went off in alarm mode. I didn't know I had one. It stands for Pervert Video Recorder and has been in alarm mode whenever any US presidential candidates speaks ... of either party. I unplugged it but it still rings loud and clear as it has a power blackout standby source of power. What to do? Move to Canada? Please advise.

Politics is not supposed to be discussed on the Escape Forum. And, moving to Canada won't help since we also have politicians and we get all the US channels on cable.
You cannot escape.

I think that not discussing politics on this site is very wise. Sorry I was in such a state of mind.


I have had the very good fortune to travel extensively through BC ... by water. I'm am soooo grateful for those experiences .... Thank You Canada!
