cold weather

Hello!

We just had a cold snap here and it has me thinking.

I want to use my 1999 pace all winter, how do i keep the pipes and pump from freezing while on the road and parked. Reading the threads here didn't give me much to go on.

I need solid answers I don't want another $6000 water system repair. (God bless the insurance) I let the furnace run last night but I don't know if my tanks, water pump and pipes are protected.

Thanks

I would suggest going to the General Discussion and Problems forum. There is a excellent video on there about winter RV useage.

I have the same Pace Arrow. There are heat ducts that direct heat into the basement area as long as long as the heat is on. You are safe as long as you can afford to keep the propane tank filled.

heat

That sounds real good to me!

But quite frankly I am not sure if some "technician" doing other work didn't foul up the ducting. the air flow to my rest room seems quite low.

I will try the heat tonight just to be sure...............Thanks
