Allegro Red 33AA wet bay heating

Hi all -- John here. We're accepting delivery of our new 2019 Allegro Red 33AA in a few weeks up here in Michigan. It will be winterized. We will be winter camping here for several weeks until our house is sold, then heading south. Our campsite has electric hookups, and fresh water and a dump station are available at the campground. Can we use our tanks while we are camped here in sub-freezing temps? I've heard about using small ceramic space heaters in your wet bay, but what about the basement? Should we look into getting a skirting kit to help insulate it? Thanks in advance for any advice or reference sites you offer!

Your wet bay is heated by your rear propane furnace. Make sure you have plenty of propane because at normal Michigan temperatures, you are not going to be a happy camper. The addition of a 100 lb external propane tank might be a good idea.

You can use your tanks (and in fact, you should in freezing weather). The addition of a quartz heater in the wetbay area might be a good idea if you are expecting temperatures below 10 degrees or so.

Personally, I'd leave the coach parked and winterized until I was ready to actually leave. Staying in your house makes much more sense. On milder days, you can start moving things into the motorhome.

We have recently sold our house and waiting to buy another, so are currently full timing it in Vancouver Canada. So far the temp has gone down to 30 degrees F.... no issues with a 1500 watt heater in wet bay, not really needed but more for a security blanket for us. Inside we use heat pump when over 40 degrees and propane in front only when under 40... so far using about $30 per week in propane. No real issues other than you have to manage humidity. Not a huge issue but you need to be aware.
