I can now put RVs into my park. The Community is in NE Ohio and that’s weather zone 5 - really cold. My question is how to insulate the water lines and meter when everything is exposed? Instead of coming up through the bottom of the home, it looks like they all have garden hoses attached to the side of the home. I make this PEX instead of a hose and then heat tape it and cover it all with tubular, foam, pipe insulation. The meter goes into a styrofoam jacket with the heat tape wrapped around the bottom of the meter. I’ll probably split a piece of plywood to cover the top of the well and maybe even tack on some Owens-Corning pink board on the bottom. Is this enough to keep everything from freezing? Should I do extra wraps around the PEX?
I’m starting to see drilling workers living all year in their RVs in the area so I assume there has to be a way to do this.
