We are traveling from Florida to Ohio next Wednesday. Even though the report for Virginia is 32 Degrees at the lowest for our Friday night stay, wondering if we need to protect our 5th wheel. During the day it will warm up, but then on Saturday night in Ohio the temps will be low of 27 Degrees. By then we are done traveling and camper will be sitting. I know we need to probably get the trailer ready at Virginia Campground during the day, since it might get freezing that night.
What is the best way to handle this, and can we do this without putting anti-freeze into fresh water tank? Please, does anyone have simple step by step instructions to follow. I know we have to make sure our pipes have plenty of anti-freeze in them, but concerned about the freshwater lines.
Also, we don't have any air compressors or pumps to use in doing this, limited on what will be available to prepared our 5th wheel for the night ahead and nights to follow. Please help me with this new chore. Never had to winterize. By the way, the bottom of our camper is somewhat sealed off, but pipes are exposed. There are no heating elements on tanks, and we cannot afford them right now.
