Ray and Susan Huff Posted December 10, 2020 Share Posted December 10, 2020 We are headed home, via I-40, with our new Elite II, "Pearl"; we are still dewinterized. During our two nights spent at David Crockett SP nighttime temps were in the mid to high 20's; daytime, in the 50's. Using the furnace the first night (and burning a fair amount of propane), the basement/utility area stayed in the mid forties. The second night (not quite as cold), we did not run the furnace, but kept and electric heater running and the basement access door (in the nightstand) open. Again, basement/utility area stayed mid forties. Now we are headed to the higher elevations of New Mexico and Arizona, where night temps are predicted in the 20's (Flagstaff in the teens, but we don't plan to stop overnight there). Jason, at Oliver, says the highest danger of freezing something is while on the road. From your experience in this circumstance, at what daytime temp should we decide to Winterize? It will be mostly in the 50's, and no lower than mid 40's. Another question: how do you manage dumping the fresh water tank to winterize while traveling? Once winterized, we won't dewinterize until we get home. We were so lucky going to Tennessee via I-80. Only one mild snow shower, but a lot of wind. On the return trip, there doesn't appear to be any serious snow/freezing travel conditions, although we may have to delay going from Nevada to Oregon via our preferred route, which is Hwy 365 - Reno to Susanville. 1 Ray and Susan Huff Elite II Twin "Pearl" - Hull#699; delivered December 7, 2020 2013 F350 6.7l diesel Super Duty 4x4 long bed crew cab 1UP-USA Heavy-duty bike rack 2017 Leisure Travel Van Unity Twin Bed (sold) Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
