Belly Liner question

I bought a 2016 Z-1 toyhauler (30ft. model). My old 2000 Fleetwood didn't have any kind of belly liner on it. I was wondering (without sounding stupid) what benefit does the belly liner give us..? Does it protect the water lines from freezing..?
Thanks
Duane

It may have some (minor) insulating benefit. Will not prevent water lines from freezing. Keeps road grime and water spray off your plywood floor.

Not sure what you have for rodents but if you go around and seal ALL the holes (I mean ALL!) then the rodents won't get into your plumbing areas and hopefully not inside the rig.

You'll notice a slightly quieter unit, and the floor stays a little warmer in cool weather.

Helps a little bit aerodynamically also. No buffeting of the open sections.

Belly Liner

10-4 on the shoty work.
I took mine down to find a water leak. You cant believe what is under there and you can tell they build the bottom while the frame is upside down.
There was extra plumbing tubes just laying on the belly liner and the wiring was about 40 ft too long. All the wiring was laying on the liner and all the termination left over pieces were everywhere. The extra length turned out to be a good thing, because I zip tied all the wiring to the frame prior to putting the liner back in place.
The liner is a good thing but it also allows for the manufacture to not clean up behind them.
