Cold Weather Camping in X-Lite

We picked up our new 241QXBL the other day and our first trip will be from Ft Worth to Albuquerque NM. Looking at the weather there it will be in the upper 20's. We'll be stopping halfway while we are still in +32 territory, but I wanted to know what I should do to keep our coldest part of the trip safe and disaster-free. Have any of you Wildwood guys made your TT a little cold weather friendly?

If you are pulling for any sort of extended time with temps in the upper 20 you need to winterize, IMHO. Drain the system and either blow it out or use the FW pump to push antifreeze through the system.

In reality, you could very probably get away with draining the water system through the low point drains. If the sub freezing temps are short lived.

Enjoy the camping!

Thanks River Bird! Everything is going good so far. The temps haven't been below freezing much so we are good. I added a heated line to the water hookup just in case and dumped some antifreeze in the black and gray tanks as well.

We have a small leak in the bathroom (hot water line under sink) so we are adding that to the list of things to get fixed when back.
