Day 43 - Isn’t it Supposed to be Sunny?

Not the most pleasant of forecasts. Last night was supposed to get into the mid-30s (°F) but it actually got below freezing. I’m glad that I remembered to turn off the city water and disconnect the hose. I don’t really want to lose yet another water pressure regulator. And the lower than average temperatures meant that the furnace is running more.

I took one 30# propane tank to be filled first to the Shell station in Needles. It was $4.24/gallon. Compare this to $2.59/gallon in AZ. The attendant at the Shell station just said “It’s California”. Needless to say, I went into AZ for the propane. There is supposed to be a storm coming in this evening and continuing into tomorrow. But that means warmer temperatures. I had considered mounting the panel this morning since it was nice and sunny but by late morning, it was getting overcast and the wind was picking up.

Given the weather these days, I’ve been watching YouTube videos. There has been a lot of talk about the ENTV company, the producer of the RV documentary, RVNomads. A link to the movie is at the end of the post. It’s a decent documentary and focuses on several couples, singles, and families that have chosen to live in their RV full time. Most of them also have successful YouTube channels so they have a lot of experience on both sides of the camera. By successful, I mean they not only have quite a few subscribers but produce entertaining video content. I also believe that most of them highlighted in the video are not retired and many of them have invested a lot of time if not cash into the movie production.

Anyway, the company folded recently but the video is available on YouTube.

Did you bring winter with you? There are a bunch of RV youtubers out there. Fun to watch. Sometimes informative and sometimes just plan entertaining.

I didn’t plan to! But we’ve been accused of doing just that. I’ve been watching quite a few of the RV videos. Some are very entertaining and some are informative. Maybe I’ll do a post on all of the RV YouTube videos I enjoy.

I enjoyed the video. They did a good job. They were planning to do several follow up videos but I guess they needed more solid funding.

I have yet to watch the full video, but just recently received the "explanation" of the failure which was really sad to read. Apparently there was some really hateful stuff claimed by people on the fringe. How sad...

It’s a good video. Maybe better since I’ve been following many of them for quite a while.
