Or dump the low point drains. I have done this and emptied the tanks. Until you get consistent overnight lows below freezing for days I have never had a issue.

I think you would be OK, but for extra piece of mind...make sure the gas is turned on and set your heat for 40 or 45 degrees.

I am traveling in Iowa now. It was in colder in Nebraska. My Cedar Creek can take temperatures down to 0 degrees. Heating the interior also heats the storage compartments where water and sewer are. Plus, the Cedar Creek has heating pads on waste tanks. This past January, we were in Maryland with their 30" snow storm. Temps went down to +4. We had no problem. We are living full time in the RV.

Is it possible to plug in your unit and leave the furnace on low to keep everything working. The cost of the propane would certainly be less than a freezing disaster.

We are in Sabula, IA right now. Front came through about 9am.

Going to be in Keokkuk Thurs and Fri nights (Tin Dusters car show in Quincy).

Looks like we will be close to freezing, but no worries.

The CG in Sabula is a "must-check-out" for any RV'er.

"Iowa" who's camping where?

I wanted to camp in Sabula earlier this year but couldn't reserve a spot.

Much easier to just open all faucets, that way any freezing of the water will have room to expand. It's the fixtures you need to worry about the most.

you should be fine.
I'm in eastern Canada and we have had frost for the past 3 nights where i have had to scrape the windshield on my truck and car.
new 2017 Greywolf toy hauler is not yet winterized. it will be as soon as i build into the line a bypass switch.
my manual states to blow air into the lines and force water out and then pour antifreeze into the drains.
I tried that and still had residual water in the lines, so they are to be flushed with antifreeze.
we get to minus 45 Celsius here so a bit of frost is not as bad as you might think.

it would take more than few hours of below freezing top have an effect i would think - especially if you are in teh trailer with the furnace running
