Trying to get ready for winter trips. Iím am looking for suggestions for heating my wet bay and the water lines going to the kitchen in the bay next to it. I hear there is a heat vent to it then I also hear there isnít. Either way I run a electric heater when plugged in which limits the furnace from kicking on.

Has anyone heated their wet bay? How did you do it and where did you get power from? I canít find an outlet anywhere in that side of the coach.

Last question. When the season is done and time to winterize the ice maker, how do you do that? I donít have a clue and canít find anything really useful on line.

If its cold enough to that you are concerned about the wet bay run the furnace it will provide warmth down there. In the past when I stored my class A at the shop in the winter I ran an extension cord to a ceramic heater I set on very low temp in the bay to keep things above freezing.

never worried about our water line to the ice make, and it's never been any problem... whether in storage or not.

as for heating the 'wet bay', yes, we sometimes stick a small electric 'auto on' heater in there, and run an extension cord from another outlet on the campground pedestal, or from the other side of the coach in the outdoor storage bay where there IS an outlet. You have to be careful as to tripping breakers if there is more than one on each circuit.

we run electric heaters in our coach, too, but if the furnace kicks on only several times throughout the night, your basement wetbay area should probably still whether the temps with few issues. Most folks worry a little much about low temps, as in these coaches, most everything is enclosed within the RV, not exposed outside. The exterior water hose to your spigot would be the first thing to freeze - simply turning off the spigot and unhooking your coach end of the hose for the overnight hours is the easiest way to protect it.
