Homestead Systems Update


Homesteading with Mrs Dgrit trailer skirt

Trailer Skirt

The trailer skirt is working out incredibly well! By mid-December we have had several cold snaps — nights below zero and days with highs in the low 30s — and have not yet had to put heat lamps under the travel trailer. We did get some sturdy Reflectix to go inside the trailer skirt, and I think that is the key.

A couple of hitches in the system so far:

The Velcro did not hold. I have turn buttons on order to screw into the trailer siding and fasten with grommets on the tarp. More pics and info when that is accomplished. For now, my 40-pound tent weights, Johnny tank, and bicycle are holding down the tarps. When the wind blows, I have to run around and re-position Reflectix and some of the tarp, but it's pretty much staying put.
