Trust me adding more power makes rving a bit more convenient if u full time it which I do since I Always work on the road.
Cool, makes sense.

We bought a 2015 White Hawk 27dsrl at the end of last season. It is our fifth Jayco, the first being a pop up in the very early 70's, so we are not new to rving. However, we are confused by the gp, because I have heard/read so many different opinions. One dealer says it's a four season and another it's a solid three season tt. I don't know the meaning of the r values in a tt. We live in Northern Michigan and rv into the fall. So, until I/we get some solid information I remain solidly confused. 😳☃

Simply put, you will not be wise to camp into sub freezing weather with water systems charged for use. No how, no way!! Camping into the fall or getting out early in the Spring are very doable with planning and eyes wide open for coming weather changes. A 45 degree daytime temp and dropping to the low 30's at nite and you will be fine. Into the 20's and keep your onboard furnace going to send some heat below the floor. There is no such thing as a four season TT unless it is professionally retro fitted after you buy a factory model.

Not sure what you are wanting to do, but suggest you heed this advice.

What Bassdogs said.

Regarding the 4 seasons: Your dealer might be correct if you camped in the winter in the south, but not in MI!
