Strider -- Nope you are NOT whining!!

We have a 2014 Work & Play 25 ULA and the water supply line from the fresh water holding tank (which has a tank heater) runs outside the camper.

we were camping in North Georgia and had the line freeze... so we got out the hair dryer to thaw it out. Ther wrapped with pipe wraps. Now we are DRY camping again in North Georgia and have no water!!

All the other water lines run inside and there is lots of room for the other supply line to run inside as well.

It goes back to that the people that design and build these RV's need to use them!! This is just plain stupid.

when it gets warmer we are going to figure out how we can reroute the supply line to the water pump inside the trailer.

Look for my other thread.. "Beware of Arctic Package" I have a video attached.

It does seem pretty simple. Just keep the water lines in those areas that have heat.

If you will be in the same spot and they allow it skirt your rig also even cheap plywood to the ground will help a little especially if you can get heat to the under belly even a space heater under it if possible once it is skirted

majority of RVs are not used in freezing weather, so they make them as fast and cheap as possible. You need to carefully select one to use in freezing weather on a regular basis. Guess you already figured this out though.

When you buy a camper with a heated underbelly it is normal to think all lines are in that space. Just plain stupid for all of them not to be.
