Is the 37MD warm enough?

Does anyone here know if my 2014 outlaw will keep my fluids from giving me grief if I keep my heat on low throughout the winter or is there something else I should do to prevent problems ?

Phillip,

All Class A Outlaws have forced air heat anti-freeze vents from the propane furnace to select bins. As long as you run the furnace at levels that keep you comfortable, the water and waste tanks, and plumbing will not freeze.

You must use the propane furnace for this to work. Electric or catalytic space heaters will only heat the RV interior and your service bins could freeze.
This will not protect the engine oil...use the engine block heater for that.
This will also not protect the shore ties (water and dump lines)...drain the dump line and shut-off and drain the water hose before hitting the rack.

Best luck

Great, right now she's just parked in the driveway but the white dog and I sleep up there. the only thing I have hooked up is the electric. since the only thing I have running on propane is the heat it just seems to be sipping it. although I turn it off when I go to bed and when I go to the house in the morning, but once temps dip to freezing I'll be leaving it on low for the duration. Thanks for the feedback Scarab0088. P.S I'm still considering a couple small space heaters for the 2 wet bays. but since I have temperature monitors in them I'll only run them if temps warrant it. Thanks again and stay warm.

You can use thermostatic plugs in the wet bay. Mine are on at 35 degrees, off at 45 degrees. Easy to find. Got mine at home depot. Have used them for years with 2 amp heaters in the bays.
