I have a 2004 MACA. What is the minimum temp you
can camp in? I am moving to Grand Rapids MI March 3rd and want to stay in my coach until I find a house.

Most RVs in the same caliber as the MACA can handle temps that Grand Rapids will throw at them. The biggest issue is the length of stay. You'll have to deal with freezing water and sewer lines if left out so you'll want to fill the fresh tank, dump the holding tanks, then put the hoses away. You'll also want some 100 lb. portable propane tanks with an Extend-a-Stay tap so that you aren't moving the coach all the time to refuel your on-board LP tank. If it gets cold you will go through a fair amount of propane.

Have camped in very cold weather up near Canada border have winter pkg option with fans in duct to compartments for holding tanks just make sure you have fan on, switch located in water bay, and keep the hose openings closed both water and sewer.
If its for extented stay I agree with Cruser.
