Park it in the garage. It doesn't get that cold in North Carolina.Well I'd need more...
First I have a 125 gallon fresh water tank. Second I have two hoses running from that tank, one auto fill, the other supplies the machine with water. Third I have my pressure hoses in two different locations, Forth the machine. Not to mention all the tools I use for cleaning carpets, upholstery, and tile and grout. I want the whole back of the box truck to stay above freezing, I've got too much invested to be forking out money for repairs...just my opinion!
I've replaced a $2,000 heat exchanger before due to a freeze, that type of investment will change a man!
I hear ya! we are normally at -5 F / -20 C at this time of year but this year and last have been mild! not complaining that's for sure!Raleigh / Durham area, central NC. That's below average for this time of year, we had a cold front come through yesterday.

I use small box heaters, it's the easiest sure fire way to make sure as soon as I pull in a customers driveway that all of my equipment will be ready to go. There's nothing worse than trying to de-thaw 300 feet of pressure hose, next to having to replace a heat exchanger. I'm sure a heating blanket will work too, just not fond of the idea myself. To each their own I guess...So what have you done in the past?
I use something just like this. Never had any problems. Matter of fact it's always nice and toasty when I get in the van because of it.This is what I use to keep my van warm. It works good down to the single digits, after that I run two of them and it keeps it nice and warm
