Just using the words I see on rv.net.

Wild rose camp Glenn. Not liking the looks of the blindside entry sites at Cottonwoods. I see they have pull throughs though.

I've always wondered why those campgrounds are there, as I drive past. You'll have to do a campground report.

Well with FUP then you should be fine because you will have a heated water hose. I've camped down to 5 degrees F with full hook ups and heated water hose without any issues. I dumped when it got above freezing without any issues. Just run some hot water into the tanks right before dumping.

A couple of options: Add some pipe insulation or purchase heat tape that runs on 120v.

We added 12v low-wattage heat tape but since you don't have insulation, the 12v version may not be warm enough for your situation.

Even with heat tape, insulation is needed over it to be effective.

All the water lines are inside in the Escape and with heated supply water he should be fine down to -0-.

There are exposed lines on the 5.0TA, can't speak for the rest. Also the feed from the fresh water tank if you are using it or have water in the it. Shots are from just before they sprayed on the insulation.

Bob,
Do you have the exterior shower on the driver side? I'm wondering if those are the lines? On the 21' model all of mine are inside but I do not have the exterior shower.
