Yeah Bill...your kind of cold * oh my word, it's 60 outside! Turn on the hose heaters *

Eric, sometime we'll have to connect! Swap bus stories or something...or maybe we'll come live in your bus when ours freezes over.

UPDATE: We have had some 30 degree nights...soft freeze. Running a single 1500 watt space heater in the coach...and one in each of the two water bays...and we are staying toasty. Too toasty. The floors are really warm. That air is just heating the tiles from underneath and we are needing to turn down the heaters. So far so good...

When you say cold, you mean anything below 70degs.  All my Florida friends understand that 60 is 10 degs below freezing.....    Grin

True story. Had a hard frost last night. Stayed toasty. Floors are warm too with heaters in the luggage bays Smiley

Bay doors; I drilled a 3/16 holes   on about a 6 inch grid on inside and let the foam in a can do the job.  Just wait till it raises to the next hole in grid then put in more. You may need to skip around bay door handles and trim out excess later. Trim off extra foam after if sets up. Just a idea.  Work around frame and I did not experience any outside warping.  Bob
