Storing 5th wheel in Jacksonville for month of December. Going to drain and blow lines out. Do you guys think its necessary to pump antifreeze through water lines?

No one is going to guarantee the temps wont be an issue, so the best youll get is a ya should be ok......but what if Im wrong?

Only takes a little antifreeze in the traps and less than 30 minutes, as long as you blow all the water out of the low point pockets.

As Ken and Terry said, no one can make any guarantee. But, if it were me, I would just blow out the lines and be done with it.

Well if you look at the long term forecast for December 2018. The coldest it projects is 38 deg on the 22nd. Every other day is 40+. Pretty easy to blow lines or run a bit of cheap pink antifreeze tho?
