Last New Years we had a seriously cold snap in California. We had night time lows of 24* for 3 nights. We had full hookups, so we left the grey open and let the sink trickle. That little flow was enough to keep the FW hose from freezing, and the furnace kept the internal plumbing from freezing.

We don't have an enclosed underbelly nor any thermal package and everything was fine but it was cold. The biggest issue was cold air from the pass through storage entering around the bed. I stuffed towels to reduce it.

We're going to Julian on Thanksgiving...we went last year it was low of 45, which is probably the coldest we ever camped. We wouldn't feel comfortable in our X23B if it was colder, which is why we are upgrading to a JayFlight with the thermal package.

Went to Harper's Ferry WVA this weekend for our annual Halloween camping. Got down to 32 degrees. Nothing a hot coffee drink and roaring fire can't handle!!

We are in Maggie Valley, NC this week. Just got here from Hiawassee, Ga yesterday. It has been below freezing for the last 3 nights. We had to disconnect the water last night but otherwise no change in habits.

I wish the dogs could walk themselves . LOL

I know people who take theirs on hunting trips. They just don't use water through the unit. They bring it in bottles or jugs. I would imagine it would fair well as long as water is not running through it.

Tent camped at -20 degrees F, with the Boy Scouts many many moons ago.

In the HTT, about 20 degrees night time lows, with 40-50 degree highs. We typically see these conditions a few times a year. Last weekend we had one night about 25 degrees for the low and that day was cold and windy and only got up to about 40 degrees. No issues. Electric only hook ups. Bunk ends are cool, but we have electric mattress pad heaters, so they are not too bad. The electric heater was on all the time, at night we turned the furnace on as the electric this past weekend just could not keep up.

When it is 20 degrees at night, I open the cabinets that have plumbing inside them just to ensure some heat gets back to the pipes, to ensure they do not start freeze. I also try to keep the FW tank fairly full.

Harper's Ferry KOA is nice but you have to be careful about their sites. My last trip, they told me the site I was in would be fine for my trailer. I barely...and I mean barely fit. If you decide to go there, bump your length about 5 ft. Other than that, it's a real friendly, clean campground.
