Extending wet camping season
How can I extend the use of my A/S? I plan some interior work in the upcoming months, and plumbing is included, so I'm looking for thoughts on how to entend use into colder weather, at least down to 20 degrees F. Here in Colorado the weather can change very quickly. If camping at 20 degrees, up could find yourself at 5 degrees the next day, or at very low tempatures when towing back over the pass -- what's a fellow to do?
I may replace the plumbing with plastic.
Our Tradewind has hot, cold, and drain piping routed behind the bath, which is all exposed to exterior walls and axcess doors. I could change the heat ducting to blow into this area and then vent into the bathroom. This would result in a lot of heat loss.
The shower drain trap seems to be a problem. A cup of RV Antifreeze after each use might make it safe from freezing.
How do I keep the Black water tank from freezing?
Do you have any thoughts on how to do a quick winterize at a camp site so that freezing doesn't occur on the trip home without interior heat?
Lets go snow camping with hot showers.
