May 14th and temp dropping to 21

OK...enough already!!! It's May14th and the forecast low for tonight is -6c which is about 22F. Hourly forecast shows it getting there around 4a.m and will likely be there about 2-3 hrs before starting to climb back up....the trailer is wet...debating throwing heat on in the trailer for the night to be safe! Any opinions?

Yes move 1,000 miles to your South! I'd just setup a 1500 btu room heater in the camper to preserve the plastic plumbing in Kitchen and bath. That's not cold enough to hard freeze much in that short a time. What happens tomorrow though?

Tomorrow they are calling for sunshine and warming up to low 50's and warmer from there through the weekend...just one night of the frost...believe me..we are used to cold up here but doesn't usually get that cold for a low in Mid May.

I'd hit the furnace to 50* or so. Seems easiest and safest.

We had similar here in Colorado for three nights. I drained the lines via low point drains and turned heat on lowest setting. Worth the propane to make sure things were okay, at least I hope. Will find out this weekend!
