Imagine waking up at 3:30am to a beeping smoke detector in your home. Except you don't know that it's a smoke detector, so you pull out your giant, trusty, bright orange folder that contains every single owners manual to every single thing in your home. You begin rifling through all of this paperwork while your significant other takes to Google.

Now substitute "propane alarm" for "smoke detector" in that paragraph. Because that actually happened.

I'm sure it won't be the last time that we get a rude awakening, and it's all part of the learning curve of living in a type of home that not many people live in. A lot of gadgets in here are completely foreign, and we have come to expect a few curve balls.

Week one, we had to search YouTube to figure out how to put the awning down. We also had to Google how to ignite the pilot light in our tiny oven.

Week two we learned that it's best to just leave the RV plugged in, even if you're headed out for the weekend. We came back Monday night to a dead vehicle battery and long story short, our jumper cables caught on fire.

Week three we learned that sometimes alarms go off. In the middle of the night. And sometimes there is no way to mute them.

Oh, and we've run out of propane.
