Sucks winterizing those ice makers too! Had one on my Allegro.

We have the ice maker as we'll & have it disconnected just so I don't have to winterize it.

people probably put a heater in their trailers during the winter to cut down on the humidity, caused by fluctuating temps ....
for me ... i would be concerned if some lonely critters would be looking for a nice warm place for the winter ....

Oh no doubt critters will try to get in there. I set traps in the cargo area and some inside. You just reminded me that I need to put something to block the huge gap on the power cord access door. Those suckers will eat through anything.

I run a 1500 watt heater inside all the time if you do not, you need to get something to absorb the moisture or you will get mold in no time at all.

We use one of those oil filled electric heaters and keep it about 40 degrees. Here in Ohio you could be outside with just a t-shirt and the next day will be snowing.

Have mine plugged in to shore pwr, so I run the heat pump and I also keep a large bucket of Damp Rid to absorb the excess moisture.

It was 39*F here on Friday and it is -8*F now. We get good swings in temp and I've never heard of anyone experiencing problems with humidity. My camper smells like fabric softener in the spring. I can't imaging the bill to heat it to above freezing for the duration of the winter.

For me to heat the RV in the winter does not happen very often. North Florida does not have many freezing days.

When we lived in central FL it only froze a couple of times the entire time we lived there. We are supposed to have temps here in OH far below freezing this coming up week. The line at the supermarket was just like how it gets in FL when a Hurricane is coming. Last I hears we are going to feel -30 temps.
