journey 06 39 freezing temps & basement heat

I reposted this in the General Maintenance in hopes of getting a response.

We recently were out in teen weather and ran the furnace at 65 degree setting. I still had a problem with lines in the pump compartment freezing. Installed 100 watt bulb took care of that. I monitored temp in wet compartment and it stayed 34 to 40 dependent of furnace running. This made me wonder about the holding tanks. Are they getting heat? How does the basement water systems get heat from the furnace. Could I have something blocked that I should check?

Can't speak directly about your coach, only in general. A duct from the propane furnace blows into the enclosed basement. Should have a return register somewhere. Ours is located in the side of a cabinet in the bedroom. Also some air will return under the bathroom sink, it's not closed up tight where plumbing goes down to water bay. That's the basics. At 65 I wouldn't think you should have any freezing in basement. Search around and see if you can find any return register, maybe you have blocked. Never looked but the Winnebago schematics, available on their website, may show the heat ducts.
