water planning

We're getting ready to make our first trip from the Seattle area to Southern California in our 31 REDS Sabre. What do others do about water this time of year? I don't want to hook up to water if it's too cold but thought I'd check with others who have experienced traveling this time of year.

We keep a bit more water than normal in the camper's fresh water tank this time of year. It is inside and will not freeze (when you are heating the camper). Use the fresh water hose bib to put enough water to get you through the night and to your next stop (Further south one would hope). Disconnect the hose and put it away. Make sure you put the cover over the spigot if that is how the campground operates.

I don't leave any hoses hooked up when it calls for freezing weather at night. Last thing I need is to have hoses frozen to the ground or the camper. It is also near impossible to roll up a frozen hose.

Just like Lou mentioned, fill up your fresh as much as you can. The more water + friction would keep it from freezing. Also, once you get down to Tacoma, you'll be in the 40's.

Keep your fresh water hose/eternal filter that you're going to use to fill up inside your heated coach or vehicle. This will make it better for filling up.

P.S. Get some In and Out when you get to Redding!
