Hello New to the forum Noticed that a few of you are full timing in the cold. Welcome! I am in Reno, Nv, this winter and went for several days at zero degrees. The heat strip in the AC kept the interior at forty three min. Quite comfortable with the use of an electric blanket on the bottom. Auxilary is a Pelonis ceramic on 110V. Did not order a furnace as I did not intend to stay North in the winter. First of April will be one year. Went rapidly. Have learned to open the cabinets at night for warm air to keep from freezing the interior plumbing. Kept the tanks empty after the first night the grey tank froze. All in all great fun!

Hi James and ! We used to live in Reno, then Elko (brrrrr). Enjoyed both areas, but the weather you describe is why we are sunning ourselves in Quartzsite, Arizona! Soon we will hit the road for our summer adventures, beginning with the Bluebonnet Gathering in Bandera, TX. Take care, L 'n D
