RV Cold Weather Certification


Recommended Posts

Truma has come up with a cold weather certification process for RVs. Details in the attached article. Would be interesting to see how Olivers performed. https://www.rvtravel.com/company-certify-rvs-winterization-test-rvt-1046b/

Would also be interesting to compare Ollie's insulated with Lizard Skin to those insulated with the current foil insulation.

Your lizardskin vs my quilted partial 2008 insulation. I suspect you may win.

Even so, temps to  teens have been ok. With furnace running.

Honestly, I don't think there would be much, if any, difference at all. My guess is that the air gap is probably doing most of the insulating.

My God!   How many Lizards would it take to insulate an Oliver LE2? 

It's OK. They collect them when they fall out of the trees on cold days in Florida.
