Info needed for keeping water tanks and valves from freezing
We have a 2015 27BHS. Itís the elite model so the under belly is enclosed with that plastic board. I may have to take a job 6 hrs from home and would be living in it. I was wondering what the best thing to do so I donít have freezing issues.
Will you have access to Electricity that is reliable during the time you are staying in the RV? We outfitted our Seneca with 120v heaters placed in strategic compartments / locations to prevent freezing of our water systems. We have been able to travel in sub freezing areas as long as we had power or had to run our generator. (spent new years weekend at Wendover in the Peppermill parking lot for a couple of nights - nothing froze at +5F)

I think the OP is also concerned about the exposed "valves" that hang outside the enclosed underbelly. The fresh tank drain valve will not be a concern if you drain the fresh tank and then leave the drain valve open. The lowpoint valves are a definite area of concerned if the RV is going to be exposed to below freezing temps for any length of time. The only protection I can think of is to wrap the valves with heat tape and then insolate the area by boxing with foam or wrapping with a piece of old blanket.
If the rv is going to be left unattended for more than 24 hours, I would winterize the water system and work out of water jugs for fresh water needs and to flush the toilet.
