I have only had one problem and it was when I cut off Norcold refrigerator to defrost during cold weather. When I next used the RV, the water valve to icemaker had frozen and ruptured. No problem normally in 20-30 deg temps if refrigerator is left on due to heat from refrig and appeared to have some heat trace. Also had friend who had water filter rupture as he did not remove and drain when draining lines and tank.
I will sure need to check these items when I pick up mh as so often the case in NETX, weather forecast was wrong. It was 22 this morning and will probably be in twenties tonight. Good news is that it has warmed up in fifties today and mh is probably in shop. Bad news is oil leak in gasket so plus eleven hundred on service tab. Such a constant drain, but useful fun.
