Freezing temp

It is going to be a low of 25 tonight. Should I go out to my seasonal site and winterize my camper tonight. I left the heat on in the camper when I left this morning because we had to leave early. The reason I ask is none of the other seasonal seem to be worrying about it.

Why are you posting here?

Go pink out your water system, never mind what "others" are not doing.

AF is far cheaper than a busted water line and a potentially flooded unit.

Ironically as you posted this I was already in my way out to the campsite. Figured if I was nervous enough to be asking about it, I should just go out there.

Out here in Gods Country, aka HuskerLand, we had one upper 20's night. I don't worry until the night temps hit 20 or days don't get above 50.

It's usually better to be safe than sorry. That said, we were camping last weekend here in northern Minnesota and it got down to 26f sunday morning. I should have turned the water spigot off, disconnected the hose at each end and ran the water out of the hose before going to bed. But of course I didn't. They had predicted a low of 31f. Had to use a hair dryer to thaw the faucet and hose, but other than that no problems. Except having to eat some crow because the wife had asked me if I thought I should be safe instead of sorry.
