Is the thermostat on an inside or outside wall? Is it close to the door? What is the outside temp? Do you have another thermometer to compare the thermostat reading to?

If you have water in the FW tank and it's coming out with the pump I would worry about the sensor reading.

Thermo is inside by bathroom door.
10 degrees outside.
Water tank shows full now. Pump just hums. No water coming out faucet. Water must be froze.
Not sure why the furnace temp shows 32.

Where are set up at? It sounds like you have some freezing going on for sure. Be careful so you dont break a water line.

I am staying the winter at a friends house in the Valley.

Yes , my water is froze. Nothing comes out faucet.

Would putting a heat lamp or 2 under trailer help ? If yes , by what area?

Are talking Celsius or Fahrenheit? Your t stat may set to F or C causing the confusion.
Also that rv was never designed to be used in that cold of environment, not much insulation in the walls, roof or underneath, you'll most likely need some heat sources other than the onboard furnace to ever get it almost comfortable in those temps.
The FW tank is probably under the bed so a heat source there will be required to thaw that as well.

Fixed the F to C back to F.

Put small space heater in cargo hold to thaw things out.

Hope nothing is broke.😢

Glenda, sorry, so cold, but I see you have a ultra lite, they have less insulation, then most, its going to take a lot of heat just to get it above 32d...

Will a small space heater work in Cargo hold work to thaw things out underneath. Or do I need to run a heat lamp under trailer by the water tank too , which is under the bed , I guess.

This Trailer is suppose to have the thermal package.
Guess that's useless in 8-10 degrees.
