How Cold can We go?

We recently purchased a 2006 Jay Flight 29Y. How cold can we go camping? We do not plan on winter camping by any means, but with spring quickly approcing (We live in Alaska) we would like to get it on the road in a couple weeks and we could still face some below freezing nights in early May. I was able to look under the trailer and above the black cover underneath the rig, there is open space and it looks like a tube with forced air running to the front of the rig and maybe a water line? Any chance of adding insulation under here? And where do the water lines run? I have found a few...

So... How cold can we go? Where are the water lines (and exactly where in the front is the water tank?)? And any chance of adding any insulation down below?

Thank you. I have been mostly lurking for a few weeks and this site has been very useful.

It is better to tow than to be towed.

We spent a night at 15F without problems and without using the furnace, (nearly out of propane) just a small electric heater in the bedroom a couple weeks ago. We've done that a few times, but always for just one night and with some furnace use, then moving on. I'd imagine the length of time at cold temps is an important element.

Remember at cold temperatures to properly aerate the interior of the RV.... there's a lot of condensation that is created when it is cold outside and you heat and live in your RV!
