Cold Weather Traveling

We will be departing Alaska very soon in our Newmar Canyon Star via the Alaska Hwy through northern Canada to MT and points south. We have made this trip 23 times in the past, so the novelty has worn off. In the past we made the trip in our Bigfoot MH, and we were reasonably comfortable carrying water in the tanks at temperatures down to -15F. We just made sure we kept the furnace going at all times. However, this will be our first trip south in the Canyon Star. Just curious if anyone has done any really cold weather traveling in the Canyon Star, and if there were any problems carrying water. We're just trying to avoid any unpleasant surprises. . We can, of course, travel without water, but then I would have to listen to some serious complaining!

aktraveler! We've done quite a bit of cold weather camping in our Canyon Star, however we have added insulation and heaters to the water compartments, and a recirculator to the bath sink. Here's a post listing what we've done to keep our tanks and pipes from freezing.

BTW since I posted that we've camped in -5 degree F weather and store our coach in -10F (plugged in to 50A here at the S&B). We use the coach all winter so we do not winterize it.

Coldest weather we've encountered with water in our tank was in S. Indiana @ 9 below one night on way to Fla several years ago. No problem with freeze-up with furnace operating.
