Freeze temps while on road

Help!! Just learned it will possibly be 28 degrees tonite where we planned to stop. ..How do we protect water filter and water lines? Without draining or using antifreeze? ?

Make sure you have water in your freshwater tank and use your pump...disconnect your city water connection...it may not freeze at 28 but what if it gets colder than that? Are you leaving there in the morning or staying there a few days? Typically it won't hit that 28 till just before sunrise and won't be there long...as soon as sun comes up it will probably get above freezing quickly.

At 28 your water lines in the trailer and drains will be fine, thats not cold enough to do damage, and you will have heat on in the trailer so everything on the inside will be fine.

We had the campground tap freeze up but just had to disconnect hose, turn off & then on again and all was good, reconnected hose & had water flowing. As WFD said, 28 will not bother trailer, it is the outside that may have issues but again wouldn't last with a little work on your part. Good luck.
