I have a winter camping event coming up at the end of February...our Jeep club has been holding the annual "February Freeze-Out" for the past 10-12 years or so. It started out with a bunch of guys/girls (in their 20s at the time!) camping out in tents. Now it has come to this, the TT era. My buddies are going to be mad at me, only until they figure out that they should ask if they can sleep on the couch in the living room! Any advice from other cold weather campers? I'm not planning on de-winterizing the plumbing, but I am going to run the furnace. It'll be dry camping for one night, think the battery will hold up? Ideas and recommendations, please! Thanks...

Wally,
I am not hooked up to water. The camper is winterized. Where I camp the bathroom is close.
I love winter camping. The only problem this year is no snow. It is more fun with snow on the ground.

For heat what I thought about doing was finding one of those small Fireplaces that you buy at home depot with wood around it, but REMOVING the insert from the wood. If you do they are pretty small and then mounting it where the STOVE option would have been in our RV. That way we have a pretty fireplace to look at but it gives off heat.

in the bedroom i have a large oil filled electric radiator. has a nice button to push on it that maxes the temp at 20c (68f) and it keeps the bedroom roasty toasty! last night it was -21c (-4f) and we had to turn it off cause it was too hot inside!!

I'm not sure if this has been covered. Buy a heated water hose. We got down to -7 earlier this week and water line did not freeze.

Where do you hook this up? Most C/G hydrants are #1 (Drained for the Season) or #2 (Self Draining and will Freeze if left On)! So what advantage is a Heated hose? Youroo!!

We have camped in Perry GA where the temp was below freezing and had water. They did not shut off. Left dripping and no freeze up others did not fair out to well. Be a good option for this part of the country. Later RJD
