Northwest Florida. (not winterized) Fcst is for 18 on Monday night and 21 the following night. Will keep heat set to 55 front and rear. Front heat also does holding tanks. Use 2- 100 wt light bulbs, water bay and in crossover from HW heater. Run HW heater just before retiring.. I do monitor temps in water bay.

Coach is parked in the garage with a trouble light in the water bay. May turn the heat on Monday. Temp is forecast to get to 9. Colder than typical. Had more concerns with the house than the coach. Blower motor on the heater went out this afternoon in mid-30's. Fixed now. Much more comfortable.

We're in Tn. For a memorial for one of our clubmembers , single digits for the next few nights. Heat tape on water hose and wrapped with pipe insulation. Sewer hose is well laid with good fall. Coach is plugged into 50amp, 20amp cord is plugged into 30amp outlet and is run into a 1500watt heater inside the coach. In the wet bay I have a 200watt heater plugged into a Thermocube. Coach is parked facing due West so all the hoses are in full sun during day also my large windows are on the driver side for sun for same reason. Four more days we can head to Florida!

We are in Tucson and heading to Yuma at the end of the week. The last few weeks we have been disconnecting water from RV and draining hose and storing away. Water filter comes into the kitchen until next morning when we have been able to reconnect water! No worries here!
