We are fulltiming in a somewhat permanently parked 36RL. It gets below freezing in this area quite a bit. The water temperature in the shower is fine, but the shower itself is pretty cold. Having the shower door open all the time isn't very handy. Other than being uncomfortable, my concern is the water lines behind the shower freezing. We run the furnace, and the basement and belly seems pretty warm, but I still have concerns about the water lines feeding the shower. Has anyone had any problems with this happening? What about the comfort issue?

I do not think that I would worry about it that much... the water lines in our 38RL run up the inside wall between the shower and coat closet.. They are not exposed to the outer wall that I know of...

IF using heat pump, have the ceiling vent aimed towards the shower and open the door for a bit before entering.... We have not experienced that yet, BUT my wife does m=not enjoy cold weather camping, so we are usually winterized by then..

We are fulltime in our 36RL. Are frequently in cold weather, last year went through two blizzards complete with temps in the teens and winds over 50 mph in two different parts of the country. Lol. As long as you use the furnace, like Joe said, I don't think you'll have any problems. One thing we usually do when it's really cold is close the bathroom doors, open the shower door and then bump the furnace up a degree or two for about 5 minutes. Puts enough heat into the bath to warm everything up. Reset the temp and you're good.

We're seriously looking at adding the Cheap Heat for next year.

Thanks for the replies. We do run the furnace and don't have heat pumps. I am also considering the CheapHeat. I still work full time, over an hour away, and we got kinda rushed when we moved in here. When we put our house on the market, we expected it to be be a while before it sold. We had a cash offer in 24 hours, settlement in 10 after,and really weren't prepared for that.
