Re: [RC] Question re: Heaters at rides - Lynne Glazer

I'm with Angie on all points. My freezing-temp technique is to set two alarms, get up at the first, fire up the heater, then snuggle in bed a little longer until the place heats up.

I did go to the trouble of installing foamboard insulation with tight fitting seams under my gooseneck's bed in the overhang and that small step has made a big difference.

definitely otherwiseuninsulated

I've got no living quarters and I still don't like generators running at
night. :-) You *can* stay warm while in bed. Yep, it's cold as all get
out when you get up, but you should be able to hit your generator then so
what's the big deal? If you feel bad about being cold while you crank it
just remember I don't have one to crank. :-) Get a subzero sleeping bag,
put an insulite pad under it to block cold from underneath, then throw on
wood blankets from the army store or a down comforter (you know, the one
that's not fit to use in the house any more) and all is cozy. Take wool
socks to sleep in.

twice in the last 12 months.
