New to forum.

Taking possession of new to us, Coachman Beyond 22c. Heading to WI, NE, and points between from WA State in early October. Understand we will encounter freezing temps, from time to time. What temps can we safely navigate without winterizing?

Welcome from Bow WA. I am not familiar with your new unit, so I'll let others answer. Your area is sure beautiful this time of year.

The answer is... it depends.
Your pipes are not going to freeze at 32 degrees but if it's going to remain below freezing for several hours or days, you could have a problem.
The 'easiest' precaution you can take is to drain the water lines, open the faucets to allow warm water in and expansion in case the water starts to turn to ice. Open the cabinets near the plumbing to allow warm air near the pipes.
Remember that running water doesn't freeze. So if someone gets up in the middle of the night and flushes the toilet and runs the water in the sink, that will probably keep the lines from freezing in a light overnight freeze. At least that's worked for us.
However, many of the lines are under the rig or in the walls, so if you're going camping in 27 degrees for more than a day, you might want to consider winterizing or at the minimum, drain the lines.

Thanks

Thank you for your guidance, we’re looking forward to the fall colors as the hardwoods show their brilliance in the Midwest.
