My Designer has what they called Polar Barrier. I do use my furnace when well below freezing and have had zero problems down to 8F (-13C) several times. I do keep my fresh water tank full when cold and use it vs outside water. I unhook my water hose and pressure reducer and store them inside until warm again or until more fresh water is needed in the tank. Works well for 5 years full time.

Just bought a new North Point which has this Climate Shield package, I think their claims of the internal temps that can be achieved without any heat running are a joke. Had rig out in 30 degree temps and inside was like 48-50. That said, this package is probably better than nothing.

???? They have never said without heat. The claim is with the furnace in operation the unit will function down to 0..

Look up in the storage compartment where the heating duct runs. There should be a heating vent with louvres on it somewhere in the compartment.

I bought my TT with the the "thermal package" cuz I like to camp in the early winter up here in Canada. Last fall when the temps dropped I was inspecting my furnace to make sure it was running properly and noticed there was NO DUCTING GOING TO THE UNDERBELLY(like the thermal package should).. I contacted Jayco and they said that my trailer should have it but they must have "missed it" during the build(good quality control).. So I took it to my dealer on the way home and jayco had them install the ducting..
Long story short: double check you underbelly to ensure they installed the appropriate options you paid for(and may not have got)..

NorthPoint also has two ducts that lay in the underbelly one blows back to the fresh water and kitchen water lines and kitche grey tank, other blows on the water pump and the area behind the basement wall. The vent in your storage area roof helps heat the storage and your master bedroom floor and the black and grey tank.

Curious, at least on the travel trailers, has anybody seen what the underbelly "ducting" consists of on a Jay Flight? I was curious, ran ours for a while when it was cold, felt of the chloroplast underbelly and "thought" it might have felt a shade warmer, but was too hard to tell. I figured the duct was somewhere between the forward freshwater tanks and the gray / black tanks in the rear, but don't really know. I haven't pulled the underbelly down yet, but I guess eventually I'll have to. VERY aggravating to pull it down. Anybody know.

I haven't, but can now officially confirm I have tested mine to 17 degrees above zero without a problem. I did put a small space heater at night in the bathroom, which has no ducting, but beyond that, that's the only precaution I took. AND making sure to the propane heater for the rest of the cabin.
