Anyway, the DW and I picked up our 2014 FR3 last Friday, and while it's still technically summer, the leaves are starting to turn in some places around here. As you may be aware, it gets a little cold here in Minnesota and some other nice places at times of the year when our Southern friends are sunning themselves in the 80s and 90s.
Question is, with heating pads under the tanks, do I need to be worried if we're driving the coach and it drops below freezing (this happens throughout May and sometimes into June in northern Minnesota) while we're on the road or at a park? What about the water lines? Other things I haven't thought of?
Any insights would be much appreciated!
I have a Georgetown motorhome and I will tell you about my artic pack.
I have a switch located on my main control panel. When on it will supply 12 volt DC to the heat pads wherever they are installed.
I have ones on my tanks as well as many water elbows around the rig.
This system will not turn on I think automatically at when thermostat hits 44 degrees and stays on until another set temp.
Your is probably similiar.
I have attached a doucment that I have which will discribe more.
Hope this helps
