Clicking the pics will show Fall is on the way to Colorado.
It took my camera with me as I was walking around the neighborhood this morning to try and capture a feeling of Fall as it slowly creeps into Denver. The leaves are just starting to change at this altitude on some of the trees, so they're not pretty yet. But it won't be long now and the Leaf Peepers will be filling up the little mountain towns on weekends trying to find the prettiest view of the changing leaves.
It was in the low 60s this morning as I walked around so I had to wear a long sleeve shirt over my T-shirt, but it's supposed to get up to the mid-70s today so I won't be wearing the long sleeved shirt for long.
I'm not too fond of the factory furnaces in any RV I've ever owned. Their incredibly noisy and wastes propane like the stuff was free. I've dealt with it in the past because I didn't know there was a better way, but now that I've used a radiant propane heater for the last six years or so, they're better in every way, so I want to try using my Mr. Heater, Little Buddy radiant heater in the bronco.
I bought the Little Buddy heater a couple of years ago when I took my summer mini-vacations into the mountains in a tent. And even though it wasn't much fun dealing with a tent, the Little Buddy Heater kept me and the tent plenty warm.
But the little Buddy Heater uses the 1 pound propane bottles that you get at Walmart for two or three dollars apiece which is not only a very expensive way to buy propane, it also doesn't last very long when you're trying to keep an RV warm.
So what I'm thinking of doing is getting an adapter that hooks up to the Little Buddy, so I don't have to use 1 pound cylinders anymore. Instead, I can use the standard 5-gallon barbecue-type tanks and either use a separate tank just for the Little Buddy or tap into a copper propane line that runs to the stove so the Little Buddy can run off the same propane tank that the rest of the bronco is running on.
I'm not sure what I want to do yet if anything. But I sure would hate to listen to that bronco furnace roaring all winter.
