The propane heater does not operate off your inverter, only 120v appliances and if you leave the inverter on, even with nothing plugged in, you will drain your batteries.

Thanks, Jim! I clearly have MUCH to learn before October 16th rolls around! And now that the build sheet's done, I can focus on doing just that.

Consider ordering an A-Z Casita Owner’s Guide. Has a lot of great information and even though it was written for Casita owners I’d say 95% applies to any molded fiberglass trailer.

Salt the pan first - it keeps the bread from sticking.

I learned this in my early teens at a rustic hunting cabin with a flat top wood stove (no pan needed unless you are picky). I like the results better than from the on-the-gas-burner type toasters.
