I am camping right now, and have already winterized the camper. We are using the shower house in the Kentucky campground, and using an old Thetford Porto-potty from our pop-up days. That way I won't have to winterize again when we get home.

The heated mattresses work well, so I wouldn't worry about insulation under the mattresses. Reflexfix in the bunk Windows may be helpful, but use bunk end covers if you have purchased them. Expect condensation and take some old towels for drying if needed.

While I ordered the factory tank heaters, I don't plan to use except for occasional nights when it drops into the upper '20's.

I spent several winters out and about in single digits with my ROO 21SS. Sounds like you covered all the angles. I never heated my tanks and did unhook the hose at night. PUGs are great but also reflectix panels in the bunk end window panels and under the mattresses makes a big dif. I also found several items to be highly functional as needed. A highway flare in lieu of a MAP torch is very helpful to thaw the CG water supply pipe (really bad set of weather related circumstances) and a heat PAR lamp type bulb to thaw out the dump valves. It's all good once you get past the frostbite!
