Should go or stay.....

We hit some early cold weather here in PA and we have a trip planned with friends this coming weekend to State College 11/15-11/17. The temps were dropping so fast recently that I winterized the 2018 Verona last night.

That being said, I am/was planning on de-winterizing it on Friday and heading north but the temp range those three days still look iffy: Fri24-46, Sat 20-38, Sun 16-42. We will be boondocking. Got plenty of LP.

With our old Monaco, I wouldnít have cared less and would go. There is something in my gut saying to stay home and not risk it even though I think the unit could handle it (especially if I put a heater in the wet bay.).

What say you? Stay or roll the dice?

What is your main concern? Sub-freezing temps? There doesn't appear to be any foul weather in the forecast for this weekend into mid next week. I live in northern MD, so I feel your pain.

We buy these rigs just for adventures like tailgating at Penn State games. I would say that you do it, and make sure that you take the appropriate precautions to prevent freezing damage (heater in wet bay, tank heaters, etc.) Life is too short to pass up opportunities to spend time with family and friends. Renegades are supposed to be four seasons coaches. Just my 2 cents, if your gut is pulling you in another direction, then maybe you shouldn't go.

I tend to agree. These coaches are supposed to be built to handle the conditions you describe. Make sure you plenty of diesel fuel and let the Aquahot do its job.

We went t the PSU Pitt game in September and I would have done it in the conditions you would experience. But thatís just me.

Go for it! Put a gallon of pink stuff in each holding tank, keep the Cabinet doors cracked at night, insulate the roof vents, drape a blanket between the cab and the coach ( make sure you turn the heater control knob yo the off position otherwise the vent door stays open), do not lower coach temp to much, crack a window for moisture control and enjoy the game!!!

this sounds, good, I looked at the model, i sure hope that it can handle some cold, geez..

Keep it toasty, open some area, not to make a draft but to allow heat in and enjoy..
