Check the forecast for how many consecutive hours you expect to be below freezing before you make a decision on draining the tank or not.

An alternative is to keep bottled water inside the camper with you where you will have heat.

I've done the following in my T12RSTB:

Grand Teton National Park, October & April/May, several weeks
Temps: high teens/low 20's, snow

Rocky Mountain National Park, December, 5 days
Temps: Low of 9, consistent night time lows in mid teens

Yellowstone National Park, October & April, weeks on end
Temps: Mid teens - low 20s, snow

Not once have I had any trouble with water freezing.
I have thickened up the moulding around the door to seal it better and added reflectix on lots of bare interior areas (not visible areas) including under the bed.
I use the trailers furnace and set it to around 60 when I'm in it in the evening.

Nice photo. It looks icy enough there for the camper to simply slip away. Chocks and all.

There is no outside water connection so will be using only what's self-contained in the TR12B camper.

Thank you!

Anna, How was your trip? Any weather problems?
