Most vulnerable water pipes????

We are finding ourselves in weather we didnít anticipated. We are in a 2017 Jay Feather 23rls. Where are the vulnerable water pipes to try to insulate. And other areas that we need to add some warmth. We have two electric heaters, but does the gas floor heat bleed into the underbelly to help? Thank you.

It depends how cold and for how long you are talking cold temps. Looking at the specs for your TT it doesn't have a heated underbelly, just insulation.

Keep the cabinet doors open under your sinks and disconnect the water hose at night and drain the water out of it so that water doesn't freeze.

I would also shut off the water pump before bed and open the faucets to relieve pressure from the lines then turn them back off. You should be fine with temps dipping just under freezing overnight.
