Most any RV is good to about 25F while in use with no special precautions.

Thanks again for the tips. One last question as the temps drop to freezing here in "Almost Mexico". I was going to leave the faucets dripping tonight, but I disconnected from the water main and drained my hose. My fresh water tank is full, but if I leave the faucets dripping it may use all the water overnight. Is it important to leave the faucets dripping?

No. Do not drip the faucets in an RV.

Be sure your propane tanks are full.


With what we've seen in Texas on the Weather Channel I would not drive my rig out to fill up with propane. If you have an extended stay valve on your rig, and have a safe way to get some propane, get some 20# tanks and use them. You could get 2 days per tank used sparingly.

Actually my Winnebago Intent has 2 20 pound tanks that are removable. I took one over to fill it today. I'm helping them with 2 electric heaters. Tonight is a freeze and then we have a couple of days above freezing; then one more night of freezing temps followed by 70s. I'm ready for those 70s.
