Cold Weather Usage

Hello Tiffin People!

We are looking to use the any Diesel Pusher we will be buying very soon in colder weather. As in not bitter cold but lows in the teens, maybe single digits, which could be bitter cold to some of you!

Anyway, I understand that pretty much all of the Tiffins are very well insulated as far as the roof, sidewalls and floor goes and I really like that for sure.

What I do not know is how well all of the water lines are protected/insulated from the cold so they won't freeze in the cold temps.

Would you feel comfortable heading someplace with below freezing temps? Teens and 20s?

Anyone out there who can speak to the question of how well insulated the water lines are throughout the coach, using the coach in cold weather, etc. would be great!

Personal experience stories always help, too.

Thanks!

We used both our Red and Phaeton in single digit weather without issue.

Good to know Nevada Nick...Just went and saw a 40IP today. Wow. Nicely done.

Was hoping to see and compare it to a 40IH.

The insulation and build quality was quite impressive.

Only surprising thing to me is that there is no built in TPMS system on that fancy new dash!

This will be our second year in temps that you mention. With the aqua hot it provides heat to the wet bays and is controlled by its own thermostat in the bay. We have zero issues and zero worries about it. Obviously you will need a heated hose from the water tap to the coach but other than that, nothing.

We really feel no difference in the coach vs our old house. Other options to consider would be the heated floors and a fireplace (small space heater but nice ambiance in the winter).

Good luck with your purchase. You will be very pleased with a Tiffin.

There is an option from Pressure Pro to install a built in TPMS that plugs into the J1939 port and displays on the digital dash. From what I have read on another forum, it's about $3,000 for the complete setup installed. Tiffin can't install it, but Bay Diesel in Red Bay can do it. You can contact Gary Harris, the chassis shop manager, for more information on the system.
