Mid 20's to mid 40's (F) would be of concern here.
All RV's are similar
. I have a carbon fiber-capped plenum which leaves no room to shove a pair of Hornet 22's in there. I have zero
interest in de-cowling to apply pre-heat and find that a Reiff XP sump heater and cylinder bands perform that pre-heat function much more efficiently in my particular local climate. All I have to do is remember to plug it in to the cell-phone siwtch before I leave the hangar...just another step in addition to plugging in the dehydrator and the battery maintainer. My Turbo XP is entirely plug-and-play, and all I have to do is pull up the app and turn it on remotely about 4-5 hours in advance from wherever in the world I happen to be.
