Are you planning on camping in the cold weather of the fall or winter?

If you are staying in one place, see if there is a propane dealer who will deliver fuel. That way, you won't have to leave to fillup your propane. Electric heaters just will not do. The propane usually has a heater by the water. You will need a wrap on your hose that is outside. Or you can fill up the holding tank whenever you need. Your basement for the septic/water lines should be heated by more than the propane. We put an electric heater in there. You can also use a light bulb also if it gives enough heat. Propane usually makes windows sweat. Make sure you check your walls and wipe up the sweat on windows. It will damage your walls if allowed to run. (This takes a long time, but the water/sweat will get in walls)Good luck.

If you are at our altitude, it will be below freezing all of February, and then big snows March and April. (Front Range area)

PROPANE PROPANE PROPANE is what you need...lots of it....no outside water hoses. I would be leary of your class C freezing up solid during February.

I also agree with everything Allegro Happy said.

I agree with the other posts. If you do not have double pane windows and cold weather insulation (an option on some RVs) I think you will risk having freeze issues, even with heat in the storage bay.

Thanks everyone, plan altering information.
I have insulation in the MH "but?".
You folks probably gave me some life saving info if not life saving grief saving. We will have re-think.

Thanks again
