A key word hear maybe a "residential" RV, which for the commoner only applies to a 5th wheel. R-value is also a key factor. Not many have more than R-9 for the slides.

We just completed a trip from Chicago to Phoenix in our 8329. I was told the tank heaters come on at 40 degrees if you have the switch on. In Amarillo Tx, the temp went from an arrival temp of 63 to a next morning temp of 23 in freezing fog. Our city water lines froze including the campground faucet. We never experienced the drop in the coach since the thermostat was set at 65. Next morning we had no problems with the tanks and everything worked well. We boiled some water from the holding tank, poured it on the outside faucet and were on our way.

Our weather forecast here for the foreseeable future calls for highs in the 70's and 80's and lows well above freezing.

Considering the long winter we experienced this past winter, is it safe to say winter is finally over in U.S.?

...in Texas, I'd hope so! In the states that border Canada, I wouldn't be so sure. Definitely not in Alaska!

Tested my 2011-8528BHSS three years ago. Got down to 15f in Chicago. Two ceramic heaters, ended up freezing the water pump (thawed out ok). Partly my fault, didn't use the furnace strong enough that night. Had tank heaters on and fresh tank was full as we anticipated the drop in temp. Used up a 30lb tank of propane every 3-4 days. The local propane company offered free of charge to install 100lb-ers. We had to order new windows forward as the glue dried and they were leaking water excessively (when it was warmer). Don't know for sure how much colder we could take her but she came through strong and proud to have her.
