When we are in Quartzsite, or while dry camping and the generator is running, we have the mattress pad on, so when we slip into bed... it is great. Actually the inverter carries it well! Surely can get spoiled!

electric blanket is definitely on the list for the motorhome.... even though it is nice and toasty with just the hydro-hot running I for one like having a cooler motorhome and a nice toasty bed to slip into

I recommend an electric MATTRESS PAD rather than a blanket. The heat is then underneath you.

I also bring out the flannel sheets - - just a little extra that makes all the difference. Wonderful to crawl into and snuggle.

We purchased our 2000 40FDS in November 2002 and took delivery in Reno, NV. Temps into the low teens during the winter. Invested in a couple of ten ft. heat strips and taped them to a couple of ten ft. lengths of hose and covered with foam insulation. Use them every winter and never disconnect my water hose at night. Never had it freeze. We are in Pahrump, NV this winter and have had freezing temps a number of nights recently. No problem.
