How cold camping

We just picked up our 3011DS 3 weeks ago. Brought it back for them to fix the refrigerator mounting ( none of the top screws were in anything), now we are debating taking it for its maiden camping trip. Looking to head north into the Ossipee NH area. Long range forecast is showing temps in the mid 40's during thr day and mid to low 30's for night. The campground will not have water or sewer but still has power.
Original thought was to take a full fresh water and empty grey and black. Only going for 3 days, but concerned with low temps at night and freezing the lines. Also need to sanitize the fresh water system before we go. After this trip we will be winterizing and storing. Unit has the arctic package, however I am just learning about how things work and haven't venture into that yet.
What are your thoughts, good to go or wait?


no real definitive answer on the plug yet.

Should be no problem. We have camped comfortably in our Solera with temps in the low 20s several times - make sure you have sufficient propane for the furnace. When we have electric hookups we use a small electric heater during the days to conserve propane - use the furnace and the Arctic pack at night.

Good to go. We've been down in the 20's a few times and I usually only use a small electric heater. Their power, I'll use it! When it is that cold (shouldn't be a problem for you) I like to disconnect my water line and store it for the night. I forgot one time...never again.
