Freezing temps

I have had two great camping trips with my new cherokee grey wolf 27rr. But last night it got to 28 degrees. What SHOULD I have done to protect my TH from damage? I don't have access to power where is parked. I'm I going to find damaged pipes, etc.?

It got that cold here the last two nights.
I didn't do anything.
It likely would have to be that cold for a whole day before you should be concerned.

i went through the debate of 30-32F with myself Wednesday. Since neither side won, I played it safe and put the air compressor to the water lines in the coach. I didn't do a full winterization though.

Let us know how your story ends. It will help next time i debate myself.

The water would have to freeze pretty solid to burst the pipes. A few hours at those temps is nothing to worry about. Odds are you don't have any pipes outside that were even exposed to 28 degrees and there was enough residual heat surrounding them to prevent any freezing.

Will be camping in Yellowstone May 22-27 this year, if temp drops below freezing and we have water in our tanks do we need to be concerned? We are still winterized, hopefully will be getting ready for camping next weekend!!!

For safety and peace of mind, I ran the heat overnight for Th and Fri night. I know nothing should have happened but for little money I know nothing did happen.

Would love to be able to run the heat, but no electricity.

Fully charged battery should have been ok for two days.

Not unless it's been well below freezing (around the clock) for a few or four days. You should be ok.
