Freezing temps

I am in Arizona with the forester 3051. I do not winterize as it almost never gets below freezing. Well, tonight is one of those nights. 28 forecast. If I leave the thermostat as low as it goes (62 I think) will that be enough as to not freeze the lines? Leave Arctic pack on too?

Thanks!

A few hours at around 28 degrees isn't likely to freeze anything unless a hose to city water is connected and left un-drained. I live in northern; I should know !

That last post from Frozen should have read "I live in northern Minnesota".

I am not connected to water and I hope I drained all the water. I turned the blue drain plug on bottom under the RV. Anything else I need to drain?
Thanks!

I would assume under 32 for about 4 hours.

If you have your furnace temp set to 62 then it will blow hot air down into the tank compartments and keep things from freezing. The furnace thermostat will go below 62. I set mine on 50 and it keeps compartments warm as it gets down to freezing temperatures. My 3051 is in temp storage right now.
