When much colder inside than 50 0 (200 or colder outside,seldom), we add a third quilt (quite thick sleepa opened out). Under the covers, we usually sleep nUde except for knit caps and (on Holly) long thick socks. We have a 4th sleepa in a pail near by, in case of extreme cold, but haven't had to use it. ) If occupying a semi-buried shelter long, what is under us is less important for warmth than what is over us, because the ground will gradually warm.

Likely cause: a power surge. AC electricity from power lines doesn't run smooth all the time. A power surge could set your home on fire. To bypass the failed wiring, I ran a new extension cord from the utility-meter power-source.

I may design it myself, or see i f any type of modified recumbent seat woUld work.
