That's a great point. Too many people think if the temp hits 32, even for an hour, their campers will freeze solid. Check the hourly forecast to see how cold it's going to get and for how long.

That's correct. It takes temps at 28 degrees for 4 hours for water to freeze.

Wouldn't that depend on the amount of water. If I put a gal of water outside in 4 hrs I might just start a skim on top nothing frozen. just a question...

It has lots of "depends" on that factor. This is more for water inside of water lines. Either RV or house.

It has nothing to do with a running creek or river though.

thanks for the note about the tankless battery area. My rig is in a shop building and it probably doesn't see 32 on a brief dip. I kept a heater inside and a light in manifold area. I may put another light in the water heater area next time I need to do something. My favorite choice would be to drive south but that may not always work out.
