Is a 2007 Monaco Diplomat useable in temps down to 15 degrees

Can the monaco diplomat be used in cold temps without worrying about the basement and water lines freezing? Not sure if it has the arctic package on it or not. Its a 2007 model and has the two propane furnaces in the living area.

It can be used in temps a lot lower than 15. The wet bay areas are heated.

Gary......yes and no. The Diplomat came with a 12 volt heater in the wet bay. It uses a snap disc to turn the heater on at a certain temperature (I forget the number now). That's the good news. The bad news is that many of the 12 volt heaters never worked when needed.

You can test yours. The snap disc looks like a small flat camera battery, about a dime in size and is located within a few inches of the heater in your wet bay. Inside your coach, at your control panel that has your inverter control, tank gauges, etc, there is a switch that says "System Heat" with a light next to it. Turn this switch on. The light will not come on until the snap disc turns on the heater. With the switch on, go outside and place an ice cube against the snap disc. If the heater works, it will come on.

If you're going to have hook ups, it's probably easier to throw a small heater in the bay or a couple of 100 watt trouble lights.

I also lived in my Diplomat in Montana until my home was completed with temps in the teens. The temps ranged from 18 to 30 degrees and had no problems with freeze ups. My wet bay heater was dead so I just put in a small heater but forgot to turn it on some times but always had the furnace on and never had a problem. Bought my Diplomat new and it has been solid.
