As previously mentioned, foamboard or panel insulation cut to size around the base of your unit is what I have seen used up N for FT'ers. I think they also make a window insulation clear. Like used in S/B.

We recently purchased Dyson Hot/Cold fan for our RV. Has a remote, set temperature, motorized swivel option, variable fan speed, very nice but also pricey.... $400

One of the best pieces of advice is doing something to protect the underbelly. Foam boards is good, we had a fifth that had a snap on skirt-the main thing is to try to keep the wind out from under the trailer. If you have an Onan genset, you can get a sophisticated digital controller EC-15W. It is slick, if you loose line power it will automatically start generator. If you don't have shore power-you can program it to start genset if it gets too hot or too cold in your RV.

Well been in minnesota for about a week now. It is terrbly and unusually cold for this time of year the locals tell me. -6 right now outside 68 degrees in here and maintaining on dual furnaces alone. Been through one 40lb bottle in 5 days which I don't think Is bad at all. I have the insulated curtains up. Dehumidifier at 45%. No frost or condensation On windows. Only draftis right by the entry door but its not bad. The kountry aire is doing really well. Got hot water and everyrhing. Just an update.

My 1st MN winter was in a Holiday Rambler. I am in Bemidji and had some -25 days. I did skirt with foam and tied into a 500lb tank but just used the furnace.. I was young and single Enjoy the adventure.
