Winter check list
Next time I put the trailer away for the winter I will top up the propane tanks.
Power went out today at noon and didn't come back until 5pm. No heat in the house, so I turned on the furnace in the trailer. Luckily the trailer is always plugged in to shore power so the battery was fully charged.
After three hours, the trailer had reached 70 degrees. Shortly after that, I ran out of propane. I'm not entirely sure what the situation is ( maybe a tank was turned off ) but it was dark and raining ( or snowing ), so I gave up for tonight.
Went into the house and heard the furnace fan start up. Power is back.
But, if the power were out for several days, I'd be cursing myself for not getting those tanks filled.
