It is 13 degrees here at 7:38 (very unusal)... You can see what rig I have by reading my signature. My heater is set at 50 and the basement blower is on... Everything seems to be OK except my hoses in the service bay are FROZEN... Did I not do something? To keep them thawed. I disconnected my hookup and coiled the hose and closed the door yet they still froze... Any pointers you experts can give me? HELP!!!!!!!

Thanks Lee

Lee, That does not sound right. With the temp set at 50 degrees the heat should have prevent a freeze. Are you sure your basement fan is working?
I've done similar, once it went down to 0 and it still made it through.

Thanks Lug

How do I tell if that blower (underneith) is working? Where is it located? I was told that it goes on when the coach blower is on? When I am looking in the bay I can hear the coach blower come on but I don't feel any air blowing in the outside bay.......

I have been in Florida in Febuary and had my water hose freeze. I would turn up your temp and do check to see if your compartment is warm. If it gets that cold here will fill water tank and turn up temp. Also if hole for hose is open and not blocked with insulation of some kind cold air will defeat heater in that bay.
Its not even 13* here you must be in the mountains.
The blower will be near your water tank driver side if you look in foil tube you should see fan.

Look for a foil covered hose and follow it back. It turns on with the in house fan providing it is armed with the basement heat switch.

Yesterday in Seattle where my coach is parked it got down to 16degrees . A couple of days before I installed an indoor/outdoor thermometer system. It has the master in the coach and remote in the bay by the water hookups. Before I left, I turned on all the bay lights ( 12V) to see what the effect would be. This system also records the MIN and MAX temperature between resets. The 16 degree night it recorded 27 degrees as it's lowest. I have winterized but wanted to run a test. Seems to work. I read in an earlier post from a member in Vancover that used the same method.

KayLarGo I thought you were from the FL. Keys. 16* it hasn't been that cold here yet.
If you are plugged into 110v or pedestal for power you will be ok, just don't run down your house batteries you may not be able to start your GEN if you need it.

I have it covered. We have 15 amp shore power and are under cover. I have a small charger plugged into the lighter on the dash for the chassis battery and just the bay lights on. It was an experiment but seems to do the job. KayLArGO was the name of our boat. It is Kaye and Larry Go!
