We have been reading over the posts and find them very helpful, decided to join. We have a 2005 Newmar Mountain Aire gas model class A. So far we love it. This is the 3rd Motor Home we have owned. I have one question. Not sure if the water lines are heated for winter travel. We are going to be In Illinois visiting for a while this fall and the temp. will be below freezing. What would be the safest way to avoid frozen water lines?

dero, Welcome to the forum. Unless you have heated tanks, it is tough. Our last MH had heated tanks and this one we have now doesn't. We haven't used this one in colder weather. If I had to use it, I think I would leave the tanks dry and use bottled water for traveling and use CG facilities for everything else. You will get other opinions too. Good luck and stay warm....

Welcome aboard;
I have a small space heaters that I bought that plugs into the basement plugs, runs on 120. Just enough heat to keep the chill off the pipes. There is also a pipe wrap with heating wires like a heating pad but a long strip.
Good luck in the snow-the weather man said this will be a winter for the record books.

Thank you for the advice. The heater sounds like a good idea. Not real sure how long we will be in Illlinois but hopefully not all winter...
