The Fit RV: Assessing the insulation in our RV with an IR camera

From the bloggers at The Fit RV.

OK, so I’ve added additional insulation to our Travato. But how do I know if it did any good? Take a bunch of infrared pictures – that’s how!

I rolled in late last night from a trip to AM Solar in Springfield, Ore. The temperatures were expected to dip down below freezing overnight, but it was too cold and dark (and I was too tired) to think about winterizing. So, I plugged in, set the Truma to keep the temperature at 68 degrees, turned on the tank heaters, and called it good.

When I woke up, I found out a couple things. First – the Truma had no trouble keeping the rig warm even on just the “Electric 1” setting. That’s good news. I also found out that the tank heaters rock the heat. And finally, I found out that taking IR pictures from the outside let me see where Lance was losing heat. I used a FLIR camera add-on for this.
