This morning I thought I’d put the reminder out there that I live in an Airstream. Just in case you’d forgotten.
Let’s see…… The title of this blog is “The Airstream Chronicles Continued.” If you’ve been a long time reader you probably remember me wandering around the country. I’m still the author of the first book on mobile tech for RV’ers, The Digital RV. But maybe, just maybe you forgot that I live in an Airstream……
I can assure you, I still live in an Airstream. This morning I was reminded what that means during cold weather…..
See, last night I turned the main heater off in my trailer. I’ve got a wonderful little electric heater that mostly does the job. The Airstream’s blower pops on only when the little electric heater can’t keep up (on extremely cold nights). Basically, 35 degrees and above the little electric does the job. During the day I just shut off the blower, and pop it on before bed.
This morning I woke up to find the little electric heater struggling to maintain 50 degrees! Whoops. No wonder I was chilly last night!!! And the temperature outside this morning? A whopping 25 degrees!
As you can see from the screen shot I included we’ll see 60 degrees today. That’s the nice part about Prescott. It always warms up for the day. It’s the chilly nights that’ll get you, especially when you turn your big heater off. And when your feet hit the poorly insulated floor watch out. You wake up instantly! Brrrrrrr!
Tonight I will remember to turn the main heat on for sure. No repeats this week, especially with the lows listed on the forecast!
