Cold winter camping

I have a new 2022 New Aire. I have had a 2015 London Aire so I知 familiar with being in the freezing cold while camping. I知 going to Nappanee mid December and was curious about the hot water going to the front if I need to do anything to that and the water going to the refrigerator I知 pretty sure since I will be in it most of the time the refrigerator line will be ok. Any suggestions will help. I need to get a little warranty work done and have scheduled five days. Dec 13 to end of the week they close after that for a couple weeks.

Keep in mind that the refrigerator line you speak of is located on the outside of the coach behind those removable panels on the side of the coach unless you have a residential unit. I would forgo the ice maker or water dispenser if you can isolate them. If residential enjoy.

If you have tank heaters or basement heat you might be ok. Just be mindful of the temps and have a small bilge type heater you can throw in the basement if needed.

The hot water line that comes out by the generator can be shutdown by a valve that is located along the ceiling in one of your bays. In my Dutch Star it痴 on the drivers side full pass through bay. There is a valve for refrigerator water and close to that is a valve for the water line that goes up to the generator bay. I have mine filled with the pink RV antifreeze until I get to a warmer climate.

You can get by with shutting off the valve then, going up by the generator and opening the faucet and a low point drain valve directly below the faucet. I would leave those open until the weather is consistently above freezing. The refrigerator water line should be heated. I use the water in my refrigerator all winter with no issues. The thermostat relay that turns the heat on is located in my battery bay and, I believe comes on at 40 degrees. There is a green light that comes on when the relay is energized.

The refrigerator line is heated with an electric strup running along the pipe on the outside. You can safely run this to 0f.

I have a valve in the storage bay just in front of the Oasis bay to shut off the water to the generator area. Remember to drain the water in the line at the generator. There is a downward pipe with a valve. I leave that open to make sure no water is left in the line.

As mentioned there is a heating strip on the refrigerator pipe that will prevent freezing there The rest of the wet bay and tanks are heated by the Oasis when temp is below 40F. Make sure your Oasis is turned on either electric or furnace to provide the needed heat there.

Safe travels
