Driving Seneca in cold weather

I know this is going to sound very hypothetical, but does anyone have any concerns with driving Seneca in cold weather (23 degrees)? Is there any chance this makes the fiberglass side walls more brittle and predisposed to cracks down the road. My understanding is that cracks in the fiberglass can allow water over time and delamination.

Winterized?

I am much more concerned about the lack of basement insulation and the tanks and water lines freezing - look in your lower refrigerator outside vent - the water lines to the ice maker have zero insulation

That's the way our 08 was too. Survived many days below 32 and even a couple in the mid teens with no problems.

We have taken our Seneca on many winter trips where the lowest overnight temp was +5F and the daytime temp was in the 20's. Never had any issues at all as long as the roads were clear of snow and Ice, as the tires that come with the Seneca are not M+S rated.

We have augmented the winter heating in our lower storage bays that have the Fresh and Grey/Black tanks in them to prevent freezing when in extreme cold temperatures. https://www.jaycoowners.com/forums/f...tml#post581371
