No, we don't stay in one place long enough to warrant installing skirting.
Look in the Forums section for "Burrr it's cold outside, Winter RVing".
Lots of good info there.
Pictures below show the difference in temperature between the interior, battery compartment and underbelly (inside the coroplast) when running electric heat versus running your furnace.
Note: I have battery heaters installed in the battery compartment and the basement.
Your furnace helps put heat into the underbelly.
The 3rd picture is all heat turned off during that record breaking cold spell in Feb 2021.
If you remove the panel covering the kitchen drain in your island, the drain pipe goes all the way to the underbelly. I lowered one of the remote temperature sensors down there on a string, the sealed up that gap (drafts).
