Does anyone know if our 2006 Dolphin LX's water compartment is heated? We're gonna spend Christmas in Mammoth with our girls and want to be prepared.
Any other advice? Plan on 3 nights at RV Park or the kids driveway.

By "water compartments" I presume you mean the water tanks (black, grey and fresh)....if so, unless your owners manual or dealer tells you they are...presume they are not.
Tanks are usually not a problem...the piping is.
When we stop overnight...and we have, sometimes in 20 degrees, we open the bottom kitchen cabinet doors and the propane heater sends enough heat down there to keep the pipes from freezing up. You DON'T want the expense of replacing these PVC pipes......
When traveling, we keep around 5 gallons (rinsed 1 gallon milk containers) in the bathtub for drinking and flushing (toilet) use.
In other words, camping in cold...with no tank heaters, keep the MH winterized. Find other ways.

Jeff,
Yes your compartments are heated. They are heated by one duct off of your propane heater.

We have spent nights down to 11 with no problems by turning on all the compartment lights.

As long as you use your propane furnace you will be ok. If you have hookups and use supplemental electric heat your furnace may not run enough to keep the bays above freezing. We have been down to 8 degrees with no problems.
