Day One: A Successful 4-Season Test

Recommended Posts

Wind Creek State Park in Alexander City, AL. It's 24 degrees & we are toasty warm while peering out the window at billions of stars. vlg7nqxjxrl3c6gx5azfdwetx1d3y22k.jpg.e7273fa87f97e653b1c06bb1d3a37cc4.jpg

It sure looks beautiful :) You will really enjoy having the 4 season ability. Be sure to leave the water heater on at night when the temps are low :)

Have you discovered that leaving the water heater on is sufficient to keep the plumbing from freezing or is it necessary to open one or more of the hatches inside (under the bed(s) or dinette) while running the furnace?

We bought the Truma for its Winter Mode and haven't had a problem down to 12°f so far over night.

We’ve found having the hot water tank on and the furnace going was enough to keep things ok while temps are in the 20s. I remember the week we were at Fort Huachuca last January when you saw our trailer, the temperatures were in the 20s for a several nights and we were fine. Mike

I have personally spoken with the Truma factory about winter camping and was told that as long as the water heater is on with propane running, it is protected from freezing down to -4F.

 

I was also told that for winterizing (having the propane off in freezing temps) if the tank is drained and you remove the water cartridge that it is protected from damage. This method can also be used if you are planning on towing through freezing temps since your propane should be off while towing.

Actually this is a matter of personal choice. In ten years of towing two different Oliver’s over 70,000 miles, our propane has never been off while under tow. Each owner needs to make their own decision as to which is best for them.

You are absolutely correct that it is a personal decision. I was restating what the Truma rep said to me.
