Interesting read. Personally, long stay even in an RV park, I carry either a 5 pound or 7.5 pound 'BBQ' bottle and the few bits/pieces needed to hook into the propane system. Even though the MH's tank is 'full' I'll draw off of these as I can just toss the 'empty' in the back of the Jeep and get it filled. While 'off line,' the main tank goes on for heat, water, etc. The small bottle will/can empty in less than a week, temperature dependent. The 7.5 takes a heck of a longer time; but HEAVY as all heck (full) to lug around.

As for 'under compartment' heat, if the unit is warm, they will stay that way .. BUT the water storage does take some thinking/planning. Going to be REALLY COLD, then roll up the hose and work off of internal water tank (radiant heat will keep that ok). Hose comes 'inside' to keep same from freezing; then back out for refills.

I have been looking at winterizing my 2007 allegro bay. I find that the supply for the ice maker is stubbed out in the outside refigerator compartment, that is outside the heated space. After winterizing the icemaker I am wondering why this stub out does not freeze when you are using the motorhome in cold weather? It is essentially a 4" long pex tubing with a brass valve on it. Any ideas?

This is our first winter in the coach, they seem like a logical appliance to set around and drink hot toddys in.
Hey, aren't you headed south yet? Then you won't need them!!!
