Dang it! Took The first trip of the year last week and now, this weekend, temps are going down down down…

20F for a low Saturday night.

I know it takes time at that temp to Freeze and burst pipes but I’m a bit worried……

If I had any concerns, I’d winterize. Just a few bucks and 20 minutes for peace of mind.

Winterize or turn on the furnace. Set it at 50 degrees (10 C). That is warm enough for the heat to keep the walls warm enough so that the outdoor shower doesn't freeze.

As Grandpa Kip said "peace of mind". Minimal cost and time, rather than finding out next camping trip that you have a problem.
You might be OK, But!! How accurate is your weatherman.

Antifreeze ill cost you less than propane to keep things warm. the other option would be electric if available. Space heater or light bulbs near the lines that may freeze.

I agree rewinterize. Last January it got down to 17 degrees and we had a pipe on our house that froze and burst...the damage came to $13,000+. My Class C was a parked 20' from the burst pipe and having winterized it came through that cold snap just fine.

You could always just blow out ALL of the lines and NOT reapply the pink stuff....

This is what I was thinking, be sure to run the water pump dry first. Put pink back in traps.
