We do like hookups in the winter

For the electricity mainly. Electric heat is much pleasanter than propane. And propane can be a real headache to find sometimes. Not here, I know where to find propane in Deming but in general. Plus one has to break camp to go get the tank refilled. I only have a ten gallon tank on this rig and that's only enough to heat the rig for four or five nights in the 30 degree weather we are getting here.
