Thanks so much everyone!
Jagiven, Thanks for confirming what I knew but didn't want to accept. I will find a TV that can tow 5K to 5.5K lbs. Just for the record, thank heaven I weigh less than 160 lbs!
Great info Michael, Thanks! When not plugged in I plan to use a couple of lanterns instead of the interior lights as one way to save elec. Its a start anyway. About the furnace, I thought it ran on propane, no? You suggest replacing it with a catalytic heater. I'll keep that in mind for a little further down the road. I'll be under warranty for a couple of years and don't want to mess that up. I will need to run A/C and I need to find a reliable way to power it (for my dog) while I'm at work. (Yup, I'm still working, but determined that there is a better way to do it... hence the TT
). I will also need to power a laptop, my little WIFI thing, and a cell phone. A little further down the road I'm thinking about a mini solar system for charging my electronics. But right now I'm blowing my wad on the TT, sway bar/equalizer hitch, and initial start up-must have supplies (sewer hoses, waste water tank, etc...) and possibly a generator. Its gonna take a few months to restock the cookie jar.
About charging the TT battery with the tow vehicle battery - I will be (hope to be) stationary for 2 or 3 months at a time and I thought it wasn't good to use the vehicle battery to charge the TT battery because the vehicle battery is not a deep cycle battery. I've gotten mixed info about this and I still don't get it. Any insights you or anyone might have would be greatly appreciated.
Hi Brownie, Until now I hadn't seriously considered a pick up because I thought the dog issue cancelled out that option. She is old and fat though and I'm still not sure she could get into a pickup, I'll take another look. Thanks!!
Hi Redhorse, Thanks for the welcome.
