We just purchased a 2003 Pace Arrow 35G. We both have 2 - 3 day weekends per month and have trips planned into January 2009.

That said, do I need to winterize and de-winterize before and after each trip? The coach is parked at our home and plugged into a 30 amp circuit. Is it OK to just leave the furnace on at 60-65 and be OK?

I we live in Seattle so below zero temperatures do not normally happen.

Thanks for your replies.

As long as your plugged in it should be fine. I would take a few precautions, such as make sure the tanks are empty, no fresh water especially,and I would open the cabinet doors, and keep an eye on the electrical hookup incase of a power failure. Check the batteries occasionally also, as it is easy to get low on water in them by constant charge. I am happy that you are using the rig so often, enjoy and be happy!
