Exposed water lines

I was looking under the super slide on our new to us Pacifica pc40e motorhome and I noticed that where the 2 bathroom vanity sinks and washer/dryer exist the water and drain lines run under the slide and are supported in a scissor type bracket but appear that they would be exposed to the climate and during times like now would appear to freeze as in NW Minnesota it is around 25 degrees over night. Is this an inherited problem or during cooler nights does the super slide need to be closed to keep the lines from freezing ????? Thanks in advance.

sorry I can not answer your question from experience have a 05 seabreeze and do not have any exposed water lines. but I have read where owner close their slides to reduce heated volume which would also protect your lines. you might join the National Facebook group and ask your question there.

Add fiberglass insulation

On my pc40e, the drain and water supply are enclosed in insulation within the scissor arm. It was foil on outside and fiberglass inside. Somebody must have removed yours.

thanks Tracy.... I will try to fabricate that , I think I did see a suspicious area that may have been spliced and that would be a good reason for the prior owner to remove the insulation but you would have thought they would have fastened the insulation back into place... I might even put a heat tape in the middle of the mix... thanks again.... nice to hear from other Pacifica owners...

Tracy, does your Pacifica have both a coach and a chassis master disconnect? I have the coach just at the door but no chassis ??

Inside my coach (by the front door), there is only one disconnect switch for the house batteries. To my knowledge, there is no disconnect switch for the chassis batteries. Coincidentally, I just replaced the six house batteries on Saturday - first time since I bought the rig. I'm the original owner. Your rig should have Trojan 105-T batteries. I suggest not buying cheaper ones as Trojan is the best (obviously).

I have always used Interstate batteries, especially for the 6 volt.... have had great success over the past 40 years with using them in my tournament boats and motorhomes... haven't tried Trojan but will keep that in mind on the next purchase... just that the interstate is know for less maintenance, don't have quit the same life span, and are also on the top end of the cost scale.. thanks for the response...
