    Safety Message while camping.

    A lot of new owners of campers the last few years. I think I’m going to look closely at my neighbor’s when I go camping from now on.

    Ummm ... and that's why they offer a "cold weather package" on certain models.
    Plus, they do make heat tape for a reason. Unfortunately, they will get paid out.

    WE use a space heater .But would never use it outside or un attended inside.I use a 20 amp cord and plug directly into the power pole.
    If its going to be that cold you need to run your furnace to keep underbelly warm.
    Dont even hook up anything water related.Wait to hook up to dump when its warmer.You can use your Tank water and pump.
