Question Winterizing in North Texas

To those with experience in this matter:

We have a 25' Coachmen Catalina TT. It DOES have an enclosed underbelly. We currently have it stored in a covered stall storage unit, backed in, against a metal wall and between other RVs. The front of the TT is open to elements. During the next 7 days the lows will be below 26 degrees. We also will be camping one more time next weekend. North Texas usually has mild winters but the 7 days in a row of below freezing temps concerns me.

My question...with an enclosed underbelly and considering all the above, do we still need to Winterize?

Thank you for your help!

I say yes.
Not everything is in the under belly and there is no way to know how insulated it is.
Water lines inside can still freeze as well as lines near the exterior walls.
