Just remember that water does NOT freeze instantly the second the air temp hits 32f. it takes time for it too cool down. (and to warm up again in the morning) so as long as it does not stay at 29 for an extended time you should be OK.

Put a cup of water in your freezer, and see how long it takes. Then imagine how much bigger your water tanks are, and how much warmer it is outside than your freezer.

If you are really worried about water lines, turn the faucet on so there is a small trickle overnight (provided you are hooked up to campground water!). Ditto for your gray waste line.

I wouldn't at the temps you are talking about, but it will give you added protection if you're feeling unsure.

It's been High's of 35-37 (F) and lows of 24-28 the last several days here in Minn., and my outside garden hose isn't frozen fully yet (and we had some serious cold a while ago, that should have gotten it well on the way to freezing!)
