Winterizing Evo T2700

I live in my 2016 T2700 Evo. I am located in the mountains for my first winter. I have read that I should skirt my trailer with 2 inch insulation foam, like the kind you use in garage doors. Has anybody else lived in their trailer, full-time, in freezing conditions? Any suggestions? I have also Insulated my water supply hose and placed it 10 inches underground

How cold does it get in the mountains?
'Skirting' around the perimeter of the rig will help keep the cold from entering the trailer from the bottom and keep the cold wind out.
Burying the hose will help keep it from freezing if it's above the frost line. Some people use a heated hose.

Are you camping in an rv park or on private land? If it's an rv park you need to find out if they turn the water off when it gets to freezing

Welcome to the forum its a great place to get your questions answered. 10" in not so cold conditions may work, what about where the hose connects to the spigot and where it exits the ground to hook to the side of the RV? I used a thermostatically controlled water line and heavy foam insulation at the connections points. I did use skirting and ran my tank heaters always keeping some liquid in the tanks (dump and then add water). JMHO
