So many Questions

Hello,
We just purchased our new crusader 360bhs in spring and have not experienced a winter in it. We live in it full time and were wondering if there was anything that we should be doing to prevent problems? We have insulated the water hose coming in from the spigot, I believe that we have heated tanks although no one has told us. We don't plan to stay for long periods of time in really cold climates. Any Help is Appreciated. Thanks in advance
f350 super duty dually and crusader 360bhs touring edition
Julie

Do you have any skirting yet?

And welcome to the forums.

No skirting. According to the manufacturers pamphlet and by looking I do have an enclosed underbelly. Does the skirting add to or act the same? I am still in the process of finding out if we have heated tanks and valves or as primetime calls it zero degree extended season enjoyment If this is the case I dont think we would have to worry about much. We dont plan on being in 0 degree weather

All of these "active" winter protection things are only going to work as long as you're plugged in and have propane. When you're not, you have to winterize just like everyone else.

The skirting would give you an extra layer of protection.
Think of it as dressing your TT in layers much as you would yourself.
It would cut down the wind that would find any little hole in the underbelly.

In our town with all this Marcellus shale gas drilling we have what seems like 10,000 campers all around us now, may not be that many but our quite little town is no longer quite, but just about every camper from old to new put some kind of skirting around their camper.
