Enclosed underbelley with insulation: good or bad idea? Does it work?
I'm looking to purchase a new Jayco and am wondering if the enclosed (insulated) underbelly is the way to go. We live in the North East and generally don't camp beyond October, but have considered taking our Jayco to visit relatives in Maine for the Thanksgiving Holiday. I know we can dry camp, but was wondering how much protection the enclosed underbelly would provide against freezing should we decide to run the sink or toilet. Certainly I don't expect to do this in the dead of winter, but also don't want to put too much faith in this added protection. The dealer can order me a new model with this option, or I can take the one that's on his lot now. According to the Dealer, a down side to adding this feature is that squirrels could make a nest in underbelly insulation and access to any of the underbody parts (such as slide motor) require removal of cover... He makes some good points but not sure if he's conveniently leading me to buy what's available now vs. taking the time to order the better product...
