Perhaps an owner of a 21' who has winterized their unit and drained the fresh tank can enlighten us as to where the fresh tank drain is, fore or aft?

Hi Catchlight,

Surprising there are lots of people that camp in sub zero weather. Some of my dear friends camp in Rocky Mountain National Park @ 5 or 10 degrees during the winter. They enjoy the peace and solitude that winter camping provides. Using camp toilets and using fresh water poured from jugs they keep inside with them. They tow their 16' Casita around on snowy roads with a Ford Ranger just fine.

In the 21: The fresh water tank is under the floor, port side, starts at the rear axle and extends aft. Adding water to the tank reduces weight on the tongue. The gray water tank is below the floor centered and forward of the fresh water tank. The black water tank is at the forward wall centered under the bed. The hot water tank is port side under the bed aft of the hatch. The water pump is behind a panel in the compartment below the fridge.

Back to Spray Foam Insulation and what its protecting.

If the water tanks are under the floor, presumably the spray foam gets applied to the tanks and the connectors and helps insulate these tanks and protect them from debris. Is that correct?

Correct, the foam covers the entire undercarriage and frame from front to back.

Think it'll keep the frame from rusting?
