Cold Weather Use

Hi we are thinking on using our 2009 Cayman for a snowmobiling trip to Upper Michigan in january or february. I was wondering if anyone knows where the water lines run inside the coach. I know we have the bay heater and we are supposed to have a tank heater for the water tank and i will disconnect the ice maker but other than that i am not sure where the water lines are. Monaco has not been much help. I will also use the proper fuel additives and everything needed for the operation of the coach i just don't want to freeze up. Thanks in advance. Sorry about the double post i don't know how to delete a post.

Generally speaking, once the water pipe exits the heated bay, the water distribution is "inside" the RV to the extent that it won't freeze because you've got the RV heated to an acceptable human-comfortable "room temperature". As for specifics of pipe runs, hot & cold water makes its way under the shower to get to the shower and kitchen faucets...but again, these pipes are "in" the heated area of the RV vice exposed to outside weather.

My experience with zero-degree weather was satisfactory. No problems. And yes: turning off & draining the refer's ice-maker feed (including the electric-operated valve) should be done.
