I live in Minnesota, and used a Travel trailer as a cabin of sorts in the winter for winter recreation. My use was weekend, no facilities, my unit was 'winterized' for water and storage tank use. I found that insulating the windows helped immensely to heat it, and cover the roof vents. I used the shrinking window treatment that you shrink with a hair dryer, it worked well. Also, a pillow stuffed in the roof vent enclosure. We peed in a bucket with a bag in it, and threw it out in the cold to freeze. We carried in water.
I'm not saying that you have to go to that extreme, at least for very long, but,
If you expect temperatures to stay below freezing during the day, you should consider winterizing your unit til the temps get warmer, and rough it a little. A few gallons of RV anti-freeze is far cheaper than replacing pipes and valves.
Sorry to hear your having trouble.. Mother Nature is being a b**ch this year.

I think all my problems are solved. 2 heat lamps under trailer
Where the Rv. Repairman said to place them.
Trailer being fully skirted tomorrow morning. Will put foam inside the slide out windows. Right now I have 3 bath towel's clamped on to the top curtain rods. That's helping alot. I'll double check the slide out rubber seals. Sorry if that's the wrong word term.
I think I'm making headway.

Your Premier has a sealed undercarriage. If you have the cold weather option your furnace will hear the undercarriage. But you have to have it on prior to the freeze.

Problems solved. Thankfully. 2 heat lamps under the trailer.
Front and back. No broken pipes.
Trailer is skirted , and has black plastic taped over skirting.
So I am good to go.

I am going through propane pretty quickly. 2 Tanks every 4-5 days.
I am sure that is normal in cold weather. Above freezing today 12/13 . Trace amount of snow is melting fast.

Thank you to everyone for all the advice and suggestions. Greatly appreciated.

You might talk to the local propane company about a 300# tank and hookup to the regulator. Many long-term RVers do this arrangement and, besides, the propane truck comes to you to fill!

Just my two cents,
Ron
