Inside of her fifth wheel camper, Jessica Vieira pours a cup of sugar over a pot of red cranberries. There's something about canned cranberry sauce she just doesn't like. A pumpkin pie bakes in the toaster oven, filling her quaint home with warmth and a soft aroma of holiday spices. The turkey sits in a pan on the small oven, waiting for its turn.

"A toaster over is better than using propane," said Vieira, who doesn't feel safe using propane in the trailer.

    To T and C, I HAVE worked hard...put myself through college in 4 yrs while working 25 hours a week. I take great offense to your insinuation that something was given to me. Making a committment to public service means a great deal of sacrifice. Sacrifice doesn't always come with a paycheck! If retiring debt free makes me a bitter, angry individual, then I want no part of that.

    Public Servant, try working a little harder and saving some money. Things aren't given to you if you're just a "citizen" such as ourselves, you have to earn them. The goobies here in Lodi have had everything given or handed down to them. 90% of them don't know what an honest days work is. I worked hard and planned and saved for my FUTURE which enabled me to retire at 57 debtfree. I'll never be rich, but very comfortable. You can do it, too, but only if you plan for your future.

    Hey T & C...Those of us on the public payroll can't afford a motor home. You must do pretty well for yourself. How is it that you can possibly identify with the "working class" as you claim to be able to do?

    You're right on Joe. Our motor home also has the newest shutdown and warning system if a problem should occur. Hope you had a great Thanksgiving day and enjoy the rest of your long weekend. Your information and words are always right on and to the point.

    I am a full timer and live in a 5th wheel with my kids, husband and 3 dogs. We cook with propane inside on a regular basis. It interesting that she won't cook her turkey in the oven because safety, but is cooking cranberries on an open propane flame. We don't cook our turkey inside only because it's just too small, just cant get a 20#er in an RV oven....We prefer the taste of smoked anyway. Merry Christmas, by the way our christmas tree is 7 foot tall and sits in our living room for the Christmas season.

    I sell propane and propane accesories. That's why I'm the King of the Hill.

    Propane is both a safe and convenient RV fuel. All newer RV's come with both carbon monoxide and propane gas detectors. In my 12 plus years in the LP Gas business the only RV related LP Gas incidents that I know of have been due to gross human error. Propane is Exceptional Energy.
