Newbie on winterization

Hi all, I have a 21 ft. Fiberglass rockwood mini, Want to use it one last time before winter. I do have a tank heater. If the temperature drops to 30 as the forecast says for an hour then back up to 32 then back up to unfreezing temps, do I have to worry about water in the lines freezing? Should I winterize before we go out and dry camp? at what temps and time frames should I heed to when putting in Antifreeze? TIA.

I wouldn't worry unless wind can add chill. I camp in cold weather if just an hour I don't think it would have time unless the highs are 33 or 34.

If really worried put water in your fresh water tank and disconnect water hose on both ends and drain the water out of it. Should be fine.

You will have nothing to worry about...with temps just being there a couple hours, your lines won't freeze, and certainly not freeze hard enough to freeze solid and prevent flow...just make sure you have lots of blankets or an electric heater or a full propane tank if you have a furnace, because it will get pretty cool inside.
