#4 Any other hints on how to survive freezing temps in our 5er?
1 - I think each switch operates 2 tank heaters each, black, galley, grey and you forgot your fresh water tank. But, that same as you, I don't know which switch is for which tanks so, when I feel they'll be needed, I just turn them both on.
2 - How cold will you expect it to get? You will still have to worry about the CG's stand pipe freezing. I usually put some water in the fresh water tank (hence the tank heater) and then shut down the CG's supply and drain the hose and let it lay, especially overnight. If it's warm or sunny during the day the hose would probably be fine.
3 - We use electric heaters and the electric fireplace to maintain warmth inside the RV saving your propane. Of course, depending on the size and output of your electric heaters and outside temp governs if and how often the propane furnace will run.
