Bought a 25ft heat-tape from lowes $30.00. Foam pipe insulation $15.00. A little left over duct tape.... Not quite the $100.00 but it works!

My tanks are exposed . Do they not freeze if somewhat full? I guess it would have to stay in the 20s for a couple days to freeze 20 or 30 gallons in my tanks enough to bust any thing? Someone mentioned a tank heater. Don't rightly know what that is but will check it out.

Sorry Bruce. My rockwood, and many other units, came with attached heating pads for cold weather camping.

We stay in our trailer, Prime Time Avenger with the extended weather package, for four days in which the weather was below freezing, during a cold front that blew in, and had no problems with fresh water tank and lines freezing. A good test.

Planning on doing some winter camping next winter. CG turns water off in winter so will have to bring my supply. My question is...if I blow the lines when I leave and add antifreeze will I be ok for two weeks of northern PA weather while I'm gone? The belly is covered but not heated. Have abducted heat vents in the trailer. Don't really want to but should I leave the furnace running while I'm gone for the 2 week intervals? Thanks for your advice!

Fully winterize and then don't worry about the tanks. When I winter camp I take a bottle of antifreeze to flush the toilet for any midnight use, then use the heated campground restroom the rest of the time, including showers. Water is kept in gallon jugs. I keep a dish pan in the kitchen sink to catch any water that might otherwise go down the drain and that gets dumped in the bushes.
