stripit,
At my age, handling 10gal tanks is becoming difficult; convenience is now more important than cost for some items. Park electricity wins for me UNLESS the kW charge is outrageous.

Safe travels.
Thatís hilarious! I donít mean to gloat but Iíve never owned a snow shovel. I did use my leaf blower once to clear the snow off my driveway the year it snowed in Atlanta.
Iíve only been fulltiming about 4 months but I havenít been metered yet. We stayed long enough at 2 parks to get the monthly rate. They were $650 and $800. Weíre at a resort in a premium site right now at $500 a week. What are you guys paying in lot rent in addition to your electricity?

$340 a month? Thatís a bargain even with $150 electric bill.

Prices in Florida are almost directly proportional to the distance south of the Georgia border. You will get what you pay for north of Tallahassee. Sites can be had for $300 a month plus utilities. It is cold most of the winter and no beach nearby. No, no chance of snow, but no chance of using the park pool either. By the time you have travelled south as far as Key West you just get out your credit card and let them have it. $3000 a month is not uncommon in premium areas.
We pay $600 a month in Clewiston. Equidistant from both coasts and easy access. If we were in Fort Myers the rate would be closer to $1000 a month for safe quarters.

We have a Crusader Lite 30BH here in the UK and yes Electricity costs are an issue here.
We turn off the electric water heater at night and find the water has gone cold by the morning. In other words the insulation around the hot water tank is rubbish. Is there any way of getting to the tank to provide better insulation?
Please note we are having issues with the gas burner and am awaiting a remedy, its unstable and noisey.

Paying $1,350 for a month in San Diego but that includes the electric as no meter on any sites. Included in that is the $1.00 per day for a dog.
