I think you will be OK. Unhook the outside hose, keep your heat on.

Tank heaters on if you have them, do make sue you run your furnace and not just electric heat. In My trailer the furnace vents in the basement and the pipes actually follow the water pipes to the kitchen across the fresh water and galley tanks.

I'd suggest draining sewer hose and putting it away. If there's liquid in a low spot that freezes, thawing would be a pain. Leave liquid in the tank.

We were in our 3100 at 19 degrees with 20 mph wind fully exposed and had no problems. Compartments with water pump and sewer hookup stayed about 50 degrees with furnace at 65.

I've weathered 15 deg but the water hose did freeze and split. Better to remove and drain for further use. Disconnecting the sewer is a good idea too.

I decided spur of the moment to take the kids out last night since they don't have school today, luckily we didn't hit the freezing mark this trip!

I think some of these answers may be assuming you are talking about an overnight freeze that is isolated to a period of several hours. If the temps are not going to rebound tomorrow, further precautions may also be indicated.

Little operating experience for you... Don't rely on the LEDs for propane tank level, always double check the tank mounted gauge. I once ran out with 1/3 still indicated. 😱
