I got today off and it's pretty nice out. Thanks for all the congrats and hope everyone is well.
When I got back to the camper I had a busted water pump in the camper so I bypassed it which worked for that problem but then I couldn't use the pump for the storage water. Then we had some negative temps with single digit highs which froze the sewer line. I forgot to leave one of the gray tanks open so the tub side was full when I showed up but could leave the kitchen sink open. After the septic froze I couldn't leave the water running which froze up the incoming water under ground. I had the sewer hose heat traced but didn't realize the breaker blew until days later. The heat trace is warm enough that it melted a hole in part of the water line, before my water hose hook up, so that wasn't the problem, but did need fixed once the water thawed.
As of Fri (during the little snow storm) everything is unfroze and I can take a shower not in the truck stop.
What fun in the camper life. Even though there is a cheap hotel 30 mls closer to the job I really do like staying in the camper and like this campground. I have 4 neighbors that I can see from the yard.
It's the 500 extra miles a week and the extra 35 min twice a day that bites.
I used to keep a large tote full of cooking supplies just for the hotel. I cooked more then, than I do now with the kitchen. Plus it would be cheaper to eat out than drive and get home late when working 84hrs a week.
