MINOT, N.D. — Spending the winter in an RV in North Dakota might sound like a crazy idea, writes KMOT, but hundreds of people are about to do it. The news service says there are steps that need to be taken immediately to get ready for the cold.
KMOT writes that the most critical step is keeping the heating and water systems from freezing, which can be done by “skirting” the bottom of the RV with wood or plastic.
“The reality is, when we do get some sub zero weather, it will be near impossible to keep a trailer warm. You will not be warm, plain and simple. Worse case scenario, people can and will die and that is absolutely what we want to help prevent,” said Coates RV manager Tim “Dutch” Deick.
Coates RV is teaming up with the Williston Village RV Resort to present a free seminar to RV owners this weekend that will cover skirting methods, along with the dangers of mold and carbon monoxide, writes KMOT.
