Freezing tonite!

We have about 10 gal water in grey tank, it is going to get down to about 30 degrees tonite only, then warm back up, do we need to drain it or will it be ok?

At 30, you'll be fine. If it was 30 for days in a row, that would be a problem. But for a few hours nothing to worry about.

Blow out the lines if not in use. A lot easier to undo than flushing out pink stuff.

X2 of your really worried about it you can open the low point drains to get most of the water out and put a small electric heater in our run the trailer heat on 40. But all should be good I do it all the time including tonight

Predicted low of 30 tonight and high/low of 65/40 tomorrow here. Unusually cold for us this time of year.

It's not the temps worrying us. We *always* get that just before Easter final cold snap. It's the never ending RAIN lately! Got 4" last Sunday alone. And now it's rained ALL DAY today.

I have to cross a lake w/spillway for my job. That area floods about every 10 years, especially with all the snow melt up north. This is gonna be one of those years I'm thinkin'. That means a SEVEN mile detour.
