Cold weather

Any camped in their north point with low temperatures in the 20s? Can they handle that without freezing up?

We have been living in our North Point for almost 2 years just outside of Washington, DC. Routinely had temps in the teens last winter. Camper held up great - no issues. I did insulate and run heat tape on my drinking water hose. Other than that - the heat ducts kept everything warm

Camped in mine last winter down to 9 degrees with no furnace. Used the fireplace and electric heater and we stayed right around 70 inside. Only thing that froze was the water line to the residential fridge that is outside under the kitchen slide, I forgot to wrap it.

Did you use water in your fresh tank or is it better to have that empty.

Protocol for regular freezing temps is to use the fresh water tank so you only have to use the hose to refill and then store. The fresh tank should be protected from freezing by the furnace and or heat pads.

Thanks for information. Bad news made it to cold weather last night furnace worked then in the middle of the night stopped. Fuses are good, propane is flowing to stove and water heater but furnace wont even start to kick on. Looks like I am booking up and heading south.

Did you try the switch on top of the furnace? Make sure furnace is off find switch on top of furnace and flip it. Then try again.

Worst part about letting your fresh water hose freeze! Is winding it back up LOL.
