...we will look quickly at our first day out. Drove to Bowling Green, Kentucky where we parked the RV on LaQuinta parking lot. Very nice people, no charge. But also, no amenities, other than use of the lobby. So, no problem. We will heat with the propane furnace.
Temperature overnight dropped to 29 degrees, tank ran out of propane, so at 2:30 in the morning, awakened to a serious chill. Additional covers, still too cold for BBBH who dressed and took her book into the lobby to read while I curled into a fetal position and went back to sleep. And though I did sleep, I was never completely unaware of the chill.
And the coach battery died. Picture this. The day before we left, I had the truck battery replaced and did not think to check the coach battery. No comments on that, please.
Then I tried to crank the generator. Oops. Needs battery power in order to crank. Can't start generator, can't charge battery. Vicious circle.
Time's up. Bought propane, cleaned and rewatered battery, made trip safely to Montgomery. Battery now charged, furnace now works, and we are parked where we have a land line for electricity. Life's good.
