I don't think a bra will do any good for cold air coming in or for a sagging front end.

I run my furnace and the engine heat no problem down to 15 degrees. As stated if I needed more heat I would run the Benny and a few electric heaters also.

rpk is right on.....need to find where the cold is coming in. Also check the stair well behind the sliding panel that covers the steps. Beaver is a well insulated MH and should have no problem staying warm unless there are air leaks. A bra will not stop air leaks.

I have a bra on mine and am with the guys that say it's great for easily cleaning off bug splatter and keeping rock chips in the paint to a minimum. Don't know about insulating as my coach goes into hibranation in October and doesn't get woken back up till April...

The instructions on our AquaHot 600 say about 20 min to warm up.

Our coach also suffers from being very cold up front when the weather is below freezing. There's just so much glass, etc., and our furnace's most forward vent is still some 4' behind the passenger's seat. We also have some single-pane windows in our slide/

We travel with the LP furnace on, the generator on, and 2 1500 watt electric heaters to maintain a 'shirtsleeve' environment that is nice and toasty (about 72F). We also have an extension cord and a 3rd 1500 watt heater if things got really cold (probably below 10F). I'd start to be concerned about water lines in an extended freezing drive, though, but that's my particular coach.
