Cold weather Camping

We have a 2017 zinger 328sb. We would like to use it for deer hunting. It looks like it may get down in the teens at night. I have it winterized already. Can anyone tell me can I still use it ?

Biggest problem would be condensation on windows, in cabinets and under matresses. Even with the water off.

Sure you can use it . Bring jugs of water for coffee ,dishes and such. Probably would want to put a dishpan in the sink and dump outside to keep water out of tank .

Like stated,condensation will probably be the biggest issue/worry.
If you leave a window cracked open on each end of the RV, plus maybe the over head vent in the bathroom, it will help a lot to get rid of moisture. Make sure you leave them open when you go out hunting also. If you have electric where you will be setup, an electric heater with it's fan running will move some air. Which will also help.
Leave all the cupboard and closet doors cracked open also. Try not to pack any clothes tight to the wall. They become a wick.
Just how cold it gets will be your determining factor. We have been out when the temps were in the mid teens.
Good luck on the hunt.

I am so glad I came across this thread. I am taking my first trip in the coming weeks and Winter has descended here in PA - will absolutely follow these tips and wait patiently for Spring or a trip down to South Carolina / Florida.
