It will be easiest if you turn the furnace on.

I plan on that. Just didn't know if it would be enough.

Anything under 20 degrees I w use a 1500 watt electric as well in LR or bed room to keep comfortable. Rvs have thin walls and little insulation

At those temps, is your wet bay heated?? I might be a little concerned OR travel with empty (winterized system)...

Black and grey are heated. Fresh water is not. I will travel with fresh water tank empty.

With those lows, keep in mind you won't want to leave fresh water hooked up (and the campgrounds might have the water shut off at the sites to protect their plumbing).

Take a couple electric heaters. If you are paying for a site the electric is included. Might as well save your propane to the extent you can.

Keep in mind the furnace has to run to keep the bay warm. So put the heaters at each end where the circulation is not as good.

I like to put a small heater in the wet bay to keep all of the tubing from freezing, even with heated bays. The fresh/gray/black tanks should be fine because there is typically room for the liquid to expand. Tubing and the water pump are what you need to worry about.

As Michelle said...don't leave the water hose hooked up. It will be rock solid by morning.

Also you can keep the slides closed which helps.

If you are hooking up to water, which I assume you are since you aren't filling the fresh water tank, look into one of those heated supply hoses. come in 10' and 25' lengths, not cheap, but necessary! Depending on where your fresh water tank is, and how well your underbelly is insulated, I would consider FILLING your fresh water tank, especially if it can be heated with a heater in the wet bay (if you have one), or if it is adjacent to the heated grey/black tanks.

If staying for the winter, consider skirting around the underbelly to retain heat. It really helps. Good luck!
