My question; How do you protect the exposed plumbing?
I have a feeling this is just another sales item that sounds good until you think about using it. My gut feeling is that you have to be totally winterized when traveling north to south or south to north in the dead of winter. Thoughts?
I always thought that those add ons were for staying in the trailer during cold weather, not for hauling the trailer in it. My dealer told me I should drain my trailer when I pull it to Florida and then put water in it when the temps rise on the way down. He said the increased air infiltration from hauling at speed will cause more freezing problems.
I stay in my trailers in winter for work sometimes so I need an enclosed underbelly that's heated. I leave the furnace on when gone to work. I might ram a piece of fiberglass on top of the outside shower but the only other thing I do is wrap my water supply hose with tin foil, then a heating cable, and then slide 3/4 inch armaflex over that. I use the shortest hose I can get by with for the campsite I'm at.
