Question Thermal Package

Would this be a recommended option for any trailer home ported in Virginia, and normally used through the end of November or very early December?

Seems like it should help keep the tanks from freezing during late season cold snaps.

However, I can see one positive with not having the thermal option. One can see everything going on underneath, and can almost immediately see where any leaks are occurring.

Yes. It insulates the underside of your trailer, allowing you to keep heat and cold in or out, depending upon season.

Generally speaking, most leaks in an RV come from the roof, not from plumbing issues. Most plumbing leaks that do occur happen above the floor anyways (fittings, drains, etc). The only water underneath the floor is waste tanks and holding tanks.
