I got right on the road at 4pm ish and I drove until 11pm. I stopped for the night in Fayetteville at a rest stop on 95 where they say no overnight parking. Hmmm.. I was the only trailer there but there were a lot of truckers on the other side. I turned the heat on and walked the dogs. When I came in, the heat shut off. It wasn't up to temp yet so I was going WTF. I turned it higher and it came on and then went off again. It was a little confusing because the battery was working--water pump was fine.hot water heater was on too and frig so I figured gas must be okay. But I went outside and switched tanks anyway and that did the trick, the heat came back on. I actually took a hot shower before I went to bed. I had a bit of trouble getting to sleep probably because the dogs didn't think it was a good place to be staying. I should have listened. I finally fell asleep and at 2 am somebody was pounding on my door. I thought maybe cops since it clearly stated no overnight camping, but I said who is it and it was some woman begging for money for gas. I turned her down without opening the door and within 2min the cops were there checking her out. I didn't call them but someone must have. Maybe she was hitting up the sleepy truckers too. Needless to say , it took a while before I could sleep again.
I woke up at 7am and soon after the battery died and I had to get a move on or freeze to death. It snowed there last night and the road were not very good. In 45min I was out of the snow and clear sailing. I drove to DC and here I am in a very nice$$$ campground, but they did have a place for the dogs to run so they are happy. I have the gas heat and the electric heater on and I wont' be cold tonight!
It was suggested that to avoid the traffic I leave at 5am or 10am. I have to winterize the trailer so I think I will leave at 10am. 5am might put me on the NJ turnpike with all the morning commuters. Hopefully this will work out. I am looking forward to a long hot shower in the bathhouse tonight
