Simple answer ... no.

If you need to winterize at those temps then I would need to winterize living in central Florida..

It doesn't stay cold enough long enough to worry about it
Thank you

I leave the cabinet doors open to let air flow in around the pump.. going to drain all fluids and open low spot valves .. just so I know whats in the tanks

I live in St Helens. (Just north of Portland and along the river for you out of state-ers)

The TT stays outside along side the garage all year long. For winter I drain the water heater, pull the water pump, remove the water filter, and make sure all tanks are empty. I keep a heater in it set to about 40-45 degrees. Have never had any problems. Ever.

Last time I checked water freezes at 32 degrees. Why on earth would you if what you say is true?
