Hello from Kentucky

Hi everybody. New to the rv thing. Living in a 2016 273 fulltime. I know it probably isn't the best choice for fulltiming, especially when winter hits, but if I can make through one winter I think I'll be good. Hoping to get a few questions answered and possibly answer a few.

Many full timers will add the extend-a-stay adapter to their propane line and rent larger tanks with a scheduled fill service.
Some are happy enough with multiple electric heaters. We have one that looks like a radiator and is oil filled. It works well for the two of us along with an electric blanket.

Welcome to JOF!
We don't have any heated discussions to keep you warm but we will try our best to keep you busy with information to read.

...and WELCOME TO JOF!!! The members here are GREAT!!! There is a lot of GREAT information to be found here. I am sure that you will have information and pictures to share with us... so please do!!


If you have the enclosed underbody, in the COLD temperatures you will want to use the main heating system as it keeps the enclosed area under the TT warm and things do not freeze on you.
