I'm thinking you would have to be an Eskimo to survive those temps!

We are having to move to 'no where' Idaho in our fifth wheel. The trailer does have an arctic package...but my DD informed me the low was 0 degrees and the high was 9 degrees! (We must be out of our minds)...our trailer is a 2002. How should we skirt it, insulate it, keep the pipes warm...we are new to this living help?

NomadBD,
If you are going to have electric power, using a space heater inside and lowering the thermostat in the trailer will conserve propane, and you will still be comfortable. We use Vornado and Lasko heaters and stay very comfortable--the furnace kicks on when it gets below about 62 in the trailer. Just finished trip thru AZ/NV/UT/NM where temps never got above 20 on some days.

Those a dangerious temps. for plumbing. If you are able to access ALL the piping that is in or near unheated space, it might be possible to use heat tape. I know it's OK for metal pipe, but I'm not sure about plastic. I suggest that you do research on that.

Be aware that when using power vents to expell humid air (which I expect will be necessary at those low temps), it is possible to have a concentration of cold air flow in a particular area that can freeze water even when the overall inside temps are well above freezing. Ask me how I know.

When we are on shore line electric power, we use a small electric heater for warmth instead of the trailer's propane furnace. Saves $$ in propane refills.
