2015 Monaco Dynasty, new to us motorhome. It's supposed to get down to 27 here Monday. Is there anything I need to do to keep the compartments warm? The aquahot is running.
Thanks all!

Hi neighbor, 27° over night should not be a problem with no heat. The day time heat soak should help you through the night. With the Aqua Hot heating the wet bays, you are good to go.

Well neighbor, we will be close to being neighbors next week when we get to Tucson! Thanks for the response. No manual to look at so I have to rely on others help. Thank you

Consider joining the Monacoers. Good forum, good info. Also, you should have a basement heater that monitors those things and keeps them warm at night. The sensor should be below the Manabloc assembly. If you're still worried about keeping things warm a simple shop light with a 60watt bulb will do the trick. Seven bucks at Lowes....Dennis

Supposed to get down to 0 here tomorrow night. I am using a 1500K heater with a fan to move air in the bay. I am trusting that will be sufficient. I would not be concerned about 27 degrees since my bay usually stays about 5-7 degrees warmer than the outside temp.

Best to you Happy travels. Arnold

So we made it through fine as far as the bays. But the cold water to the master toilet and sink froze. No damage after they thawed. In this motorhome they both slide. Wondering if anyone knows what I could do to prevent this in the future?
Thanks

If you have heated bays or at least heated tanks.

Fill on-board fresh water at least half (I'd not fill it full)
Disconnect fresh hose and drain it so it's only got air inside.

If you have dumped then close dump vlaves. Disconnect hose at RV and "Walk" it (Lift the RV end then lift along the length of the hose) to drain it into the hole in the ground.. Re-connect to RV but DO NOT open valves.


Home is where I park it.
