Someone probably has a tip for that.

The RV park I am staying at has a meter on my electric use. A lot of parks discourage you from using electricity for heat. This is how they do it. Charge extra for how much electricity you use
Of course now going with propane for heat to save money.
Wonder if I should do the same for fridge and water heater, switch to propane?

I expect that the propane costs you more than the additional electricity charge but you would need to do the math to be sure. Heat tapes would use much less than your AC does.

...also, as far as youtube help videos -- it's always a good idea to read the comments because someone will outright suggest a problem with the tip, or maybe provide a better solution

Uh oh
Got into some politics with a Trumper in the RV campground
Dont want to rehash that
But what got us there kind of fascinated me

3 of us were talking about pulling trailers and some of the problems we run into
One guy said he was in California, pointed to a nearby phone pole and said he would not be able to see it in CA because there was so much smoke
The Trumper countered with the reason California was on fire. god.
He said god hates California and thats why its on fire. He said its actually predicted in the Bible
I told him different times, different perspectives on what people think god wants
Take the Oklahoma dust bowl days. Back then, people were convinced it was god that was sending them to California. god wants all those people in California, its the only reasonable explanation if you believe in god back then in Oklahoma.

Just say, "Allah be praised." He won't be sure what side to take.

He did have a mask and is taking the virus seriously so I give him credit for that.
A bit weird on god but thankfully grounded in reality regarding the virus

God* wanted the Okies to move to California in the 30s so he could roast them later with wildfires. Just doesn't like them.
