David,

Did you burst any lines or fittings? Were you using the propane furnace also, or just your electric radiators?

I ask because I've often worried about frozen pipes when using the radiators, A future project was to rewire the thermostats or furnace fan to be able run even without the furnace making heat just like you can do with the A/C fans). The idea being to circulate some interior air down into the storage compartments. This has just become a higher priority project. Thanks and sorry.

Hi...

I forgot the that it was to get that cold and did not turn on my propane heaters. I only had the electric heaters that, well, did not keep up and the interior got down to 56. Woke up cold and turned on the propane heaters.

I think I am lucky that I did not have any issues at all. (well at least that I know of at this time.) I brought inside the frozen hose, water filter, and water softener to thaw in the shower. I am currently running off the tank without issue. It was going lower last night, so I keep the propane heaters on, all nice inside and the cargo area seems to have keep above 45 and I had the inside set to 67 for the night. (I put a remote temp sensor in it.)

David, I assume you are heading on west at some point. If you choose
I-40 you are heading into colder weather than where you are now. I would choose dropping on down to I-10 for warmer temps. I have made that westward trip many times in January and it can get pretty cold unless you get further south.
