Because the daytime highs should have been in the upper 40s, we weren't too concerned with a short duration of below freezing temps. Although the camper weathered the exceptionally (for us) cold temps, I would not recommend it. With the tank heaters, a ceramic heater, mattress heaters and furnace, we stayed plenty warm in the camper.
I like the weather station in the camper. Did you have to run an outside wire or is it wireless?

The weather station is wireless. I put a strip of velcro on the underside of my folding table (outside the camper) and stick the sensor to it. That way the sensor is in the shade and gives a fairly accurate reading.

Hard to believe they ran all 7 outlets on one 15 amp breaker.
This is good to know. Thanks. I'll have to see what I can do to reroute some of these. Haven't had any issues yet though.
