Iam finishing up with the insulating and plugging holes around water pipes.

In the pass through behind the plastic that has the water supply lines, we have some large holes going into the belly of the Kingston with water lines,etc.

Hasanyone plug these areas? I am concerned about that area needing some of the heat from the pass through.

I used expanding foam on every crack and hole I found on our PP. Sealed all the holes where water or drain lines went through the floor or walls.

Hunter, if I plug all the holes will that effect the heating of fresh water and waste tanks?

The furnace on our unit is under the sink, I see some large holes on the right hand side, close to the furnace (difficult to get to), did you put foam in that area? I was not sure if that area was a little close to the furnace, what do you think? Did you use the big crack fill foam?

The last time we camped the temp was in the low 20s and the insulation I put in Kingston's pass though and front storage was not enough so, I will need to do more as we will be init for a couple days atChristmas.

No it will not effect how much heat gets to your tanks. The under belly is heated by the heat ducts when you use the propane heater. Any other holes around pipes and water lines is just leaking air in or out of the trailer.



I did not use the expanding foam around the heater area I used aluminum AC/Heating tape I bought at Home Depot. I keep a roll of it in the trailer.

Thanks HunterII, I will use the aluminum AC/Heating tape if I can get the tape in this small area may be easer to to get steel wool in that area don't know.
