While the low so far has been in the upper 20s over the last several weeks the daytime highs have been in the 70s. Great sleeping weather with the windows open. It has now been 6 weeks living in the rv and we now have hot water and the propane stove now works. It took 4 weeks to get an appointment with the rv repair guy to come out and check the lines. While I feel confident dealing with plumbing and electrical I do not feel easy working with gas.
The furnace will require him to come back out as there appears to be a mud daubers (sic) nest somewhere in the exhaust flu that he will need to disassemble and clean out. Other than that wife is all happy. With 2 generator and a heater buddy along with the heated freshwater hose we should be good. I still want to get a length ov PVC to put over the sewer line to prevent cracking and avoid poopsicles.
Other than those few items life is good. I enjoy sitting outside in the evenings talking to the fellow nomads. You would be surprised as to how many people younger and old are full timing. Though many of the snow birds are heading south shortly, there are quite a few neighbors who will be joining us for the winter ahead. A sort of nomad community. I am always willing to learn from the neighbors about improving things to make life easier as a nomad.
One of the things we have learned thus far is park wifi sucks. This on top of the fact that the latest bug makes wifi connections insecure. Thus I am glad I upgraded my mobile to unlimited data. The the wife and I can share the data on my iPhone so that we can stream Netflix and other TV on her iPad. Happy wife happy life.
Living up in the hills has been a positive experience thus far. The little store across the street has all the essentials as done the Diamond Shamrock down the road. So we are not forced to travel much to the KingSoopers several miles across town. I am hoping to soon be able to devote more time to my photography and painting but right now the mechanics and assisting the boy with his new motorbike is taking free time. Plus I getting relaxed in this peaceful environment.
