I agree with Clint - I would say you're better off to suck it up & motel in that bad of weather.

If I weren't semi retired. I'd go for it! Although after reading what you guys said. About all that cold and freezing. Nah, forget it! If I had to deal with frozen busted pipes. I'd cry like a baby!

My coach was previously owned by a gentleman from Minnesota and he installed a Proheat diesel boiler. Hooks into the cooling system of the coach which is used for the water heater, bedroom heater and front coach heater. Has a thermostat that turns it on at 150 degrees and off at 185 degrees. Not sure how efficient it is compared to other power sources with the current price of diesel, but might be worth looking into. I would also suggest that you block the wind from going under your coach, have seen this done with hay bales and foam insulation. Not pretty and would make it a chore to move your coach, but will keep stuff from freezing.
