I envy you, I love winter... :-) They are making heated water hoses now for freshwater...not the kind with an external cable, but a newer style that has the heater wires embedded in the hose lining. Good stuff...but pricey, $100 for a 50 footer.  I also vote yes on the Reflectix. We've lined our entire coach with it...behind the walls, ceiling, etc. We run a single 13,500 BTU a/c and it keeps things cool even at 95 degrees. Our first winter in the coach won't be this year..we'll be in Florida, but can't wait to try out our insulation in colder temps. Anyway, enjoy the snow...I always love a good blizzard...always Smiley

One way to deal with the leaky front end of the coach is to make up a heavy curtain to draw closed or hang for the purpose somewhere back of where the holes through the floor and the dash are.

Perhaps run from behind the driver's chair to the vertical beside the driver's door takes care of all those places that may be leaking heat.

Floor to ceiling, wall to wall, cut to fit snug around whatever is in the way. You are trying to prevent air circulation, so if it is tight at the bottom, the little bit of gaps at the top won't be able to free flow. Or vise versa.

happy coaching!
