Winter camping and mods....
This may be better suited for the Mods forum, but it kinda fits here too. I'm trying to figure out the best way to configure my camper for camping in snowbound regions (ie. ski season). I have an SVT-304. It has an enclosed belly, but we all know that's my no means insulated. I'm wanting to have full use of water/tanks, etc, so I was thinking of adding a second furnace and some insulation to the belly to keep the water lines/tanks from freezing. Also, this allows for protection while on the road as well being that it can run off 12v unlike heat tape (I know tank heaters are 120/12 if you get them that way.). Along with the furnace I would put self-regulating heat tape on any lines that extend from the outside of the belly on arrival to keep them open. Has anyone done anything like this? Am I thinking along the correct lines here or am I doing overkill? I don't want to overspend on this, but do want to make (as sure as I can, anyway) sure I don't wind up with a popcicle.
Anyone's experiences or ideas are greatly appreciated. This is our first year to attempt this so I'm trying to keep from realizing the hard way we forgot something.
