    Depends on how your basement heater works. Ours is just a space heater in the water connections area, nothing in the water tank itself. But have yet to find a problem.

    Might help using some skirting around the bottom of your rv to keep the wind from blowing underneath, should help it stay a little warmer. Just a thought

    My 08 Bounder has two vents in the basement where the water tanks are. Are you concerned while you're traveling or once you get there? If while traveling and you use the dash heat and it never gets below 50 in the coach then of course the heat will never come on. If parked and you have electric, a small thermostatically controlled electric heater may be more effective. My 2 cents.

    Also, unless it stays at 25 or below for an extended period, I wouldn;t worry about a few hours at 25 degrees.
