You might send an E-Mail to Winnebago with details of your coach, http://www.winnebagoind.com/ or go to Wally World and buy an inexpensive digital thermometer with a remote sensor and place it in the bay area in question. These are not bad to have as we have one and place the remote sensor in the refrig to monitor temps in hot weather.

What some are doing for supplemental heat in the water pump area, when needed, is use a hanging light with a 100W bulb. This seems to help the WP from freezing.

I have the same MH. I think that there is warm furnace air going into the water compartment only. I have not actually checked this, but seems this is a common practice.

I have a 12 v light in the compartment right next to the pump and I turn it on if I don't have the pump winterized. Also, if the HWH is nearby, the heat from it when you are using the RV will heat that compartment. Don't know how different your adventurer is from mine.

Thanks Guys. Its 19 outside now and 39 next to the water pump so I guess its ok for now. I wish I had an AC outlet in that bay. Maybe I will see if I can add one later. The 12 volt light is to far away to do any good. The water pump is in the frist bay to the rear of the front door.


Thanks Don and Barb

Run an extension cord with a metal trouble light with a 100 watt bulb in it to your water pump area.

Our water pump is in a complete separate area than the holding tanks are.

Winnie says our holding tanks are heater by the furnace, and I sure don't believe them.

Not sure you would need one out there. Our son said it was only -18F in the Craig the other day.

You didn't say where the water pump was located. If it's the same as our 01 Adventurer it's in a front compartment next to the water heater. Ours also has the motoraid system that heats the water as you travel by running the engine coolant around the water heater.

If you have the same systems in the same location the pump should stay warm when you travel and if you have the water heater on while you're stationary. We've camped in temperatures in the low teens without freezing the pump or any internal water lines.

Our outside shower compatrment is heated by warm air from under the bathroom sink cabinet. We had to be sure not to fill it with towels or not enough heat would get to the faucet to keep it from freezing.

Since we forgot a couple times to leave open space in the sink cabinet I installed shut off valves in the lines going to the outside shower. Now I just close them in cold weather and drain the lines. No more freezing problems and no more replacing faucets.

Left home last week to go skiing....-14F, and on the way there, it was -34F, and when we got on the slopes, it was -12F

Where's all the global warming we are all warned about?

One of the definitions of allegorical is standing for something else. The pronunciation of allegorical is AL-a-GORE- ical.

I have voluntarily placed myself in the penalty box.

Ran an extension cord with a metal trouble light to the water Pump with a 60 W bulb. Should be fine.
I Can't run the Water Heater all night It keeps failing I have to clean the Contacts but thats another post. I light it with a Bar-B-Q striker when we need it. Sometime it will stay lite and relight and sometimes it won't. But like I said thats another Post.
We are on the last leg of a 15,000 mile + - trip so when we get home I will have somework to do.

Thanks Don and Barb
