Traveling up to Maine this winter

And I was wondering how I can get 120 volt extension cord into the water compartment in case I need to run an electric heater to keep it from freezing?

Does your coach have gas furnace? Some have air ducts going to the holding tanks to keep them from freezing. Of course the furnace must be on and they are designed to operate while driving too. In our wet bay compartment there is also a 120vac receptacle to plug things into as well. If parked at a RV camp you could run an extension cord from the park pedestal to your wet bay compartment.

You are going to need a LOT of propane. If you are planning a trip to inland northern Maine, you will need even more. Consider arranging for large storage tanks wherever you camp.

I forgot to mention that I have an 1999 American Eagle with 2 furnaces. But just in case of a cold snap I was hoping to run an extension cord from my basement freezer compartment over to the water compartment to plug in an electric heater if needed. I can not get a wire snake through to the freezer compartment to pull and extension cord through. I didnít know if anyone was familiar with basement lay out of the American Eagle. The coach looks pretty well setup for cold weather but you never know how cold it will get up there.
Thanks
