  1. I thought the video was very good. It presented Pros and Cons of various systems of heating that are used in RVs. This helped me gain a better understanding of various systems and possible means for providing heat to the RV. I also did not understand the importance of the water lines in the basement area. I now have a better understanding of why to protect the basement area in cold climates.

    Thank you.
