Sam. I have a Question about the plumbing construction on my Sabre 34TBOK. We have a couple more weekends to use it this winter here in central Nebraska, so the heat is left on at 60 to keep everything toast. The water heater is also on. the problem has been the kitchen water lines are frozen in mid teens temperatures.
Last night, I cut an opening in the coraplast underbelly cover too see what was up. I was quite surprised to find the lines sitting directly on the "radiant" insulating layer. I had assumed the regular insulation would have been below the lines as well. Can you clear up that construction for me? Also, how is heat supplied to the underbelly?
Thanks
Joel

Thanks turbs. I emailed Sabre as well. In my iddy bitty bird brain, I had pictured the insulation all below any water lines and tanks, but it seems as though the only insulation below is the "radiant insulation technology" (foil bubble wrap )

Thanks to Sabres excellent customer service, I got a very quick reply from my email to Gary there. All is normal and he answered my questions quickly. Next spring I will drop the underbelly and add more insulation, and possibly some heat tape?.

Gary is top notch!
He's went over and above with any help I've needed.

Will do. Thinking of asking one if my farmer friends for some winter heated shop space for a week or two. But it'll have to wait now. I'm having surgery on an ankle next Thursday and will be out of commission completely for three weeks, then 6 more with a boot. Gonna go stir crazy fer sure

Through the taillights easiest. Not the best.
From under the underbelly prefered.


May I ask why?
