Important Winter RV Question

I have a class a 1999 Winnebago adventurer 35c. I am taking it from florida to Minnesota for the holidays. Before I winterize it which I will probably do in Missouri on our way are the water lines and all water safe from freezing as long as the inside of the coach is heated at normal living temperatures? Even if I just have the heat going from the engine while we are driving? Appreciate some of your veteran input. Happy holidays

Winters in MO can be dicey, it can either be 50 degrees or just as easily 19 degrees. Personally I would winterize before leaving, plan on eating in restaurants, and use RV antifreeze for flushing the commode. Easier to winterize now than when the temps are below freezing. Wally world has the cheapest price on RV antifreeze that I could find and we use it liberally.

I am not familiar with your coach so I can only give a qualified answer. No you probably are not safe with just the heat from the engine. Does your coach have ductwork down to the heated bay area where your tanks are. If so you will have to run your propane heater to keep that warm. You can run your propane heater while running and you should be safe, If of course you have ductwork that runs to the tank area.

You should have a heat duct from your propane heater for the underfloor plumbing--our 91 Pace Arrow had it. You will need to run your heater as mentioned to keep the plumbing from freezing. You may also consider to open cabinet doors under your sink(s) if it gets real cold.
