Winterliving in a Classic MH

Here are the steps we take every year to live in our MH. One of the biggest heat losses are the vents. Notice all of the daylight in the vent. After removing the cover, a piece of regular insulation is cut to go around the motor. A second peice goes underneath the fan to give extra protection. We leave the 2 small vents in shower & head areas for use.

Drafty Windows

Our MH has a lot of windows. We cover the rear panoramic windows, front cockpit sliders, & the windsheild with silver reflective insultion. The windsheild is easier to do when the rearview mirror is removed. The other regular windows get the clear shrinkwrap type plastic covering.

Keeping the wter flowing

Today I tackled the water hose. It had a heat tape attached to it. Then it was covered with a foam cover. The kind of foam used to protect plumbing in a home. Note how there is a little extra left out to protect the spigot. The foam wasn't big enough to cover the pressure regulator & check valve. The heat tape was zip tied to these devices for protection. Don't forget to protect any exposed plumbing. I don't have a belly pan to do that.

3Dog - are you using your MoHo during the months of Nov thru April or do you park it somewhere? I have been trying to figure just what might be necessary to protect the water system as it seems to be the only thing that can be harmed....

We fulltime in our AS. This is what we do to stay warm & functional during the winter months.
