also, i do disconnect water hose at night from the motorhome and i dont leave the sewer hose connected like i usually do. and i dont dump till afternoon when things have warmed up. not much if any insulation in the slide out, so your head may get cold at night. i have a separate electric wall mounted heater in bedroom to cut down on gas furnace cycling on and off and i put in a Coleman heat strip in the air conditioner very simple install. about 35.00. it doesn't heat the motorhome. just takes the chill off.

Not in my house. I don't want to cut grass, weed eat, wash cars, or change oil. I don't even like to build things anymore. Of course I like to at least pretend he is in charge. Lol

Besides the pipes and tanks, what else is exposed to freezing?


I have a Quantum GR22 (fancy fe22) it came with heating pads. They are just pads stuck to the bottom of black and grey tanks that warm tank about 10-15 degrees. Fresh doesn't need it since it is inside.

My Quantum GR22 came with them. Pads are basically glued to bottom of tank. I think they bring temp up 12 degrees.

I installed also. It warms up the coach but you have to deal with loud fan. Measured air coming out and it is 94 degrees. Any mods to quit down or slow down a/c fan?
