When we had our first 5th wheel, many years ago, it was parked beside our house. Used mostly as a guest house, as we weren't able to vacation in it as we had planned. We just kept a small heater in it during the winter, and never worried about winterizing it. We did drain all the water out of it. Never had a problem with anything freezing up. Now we live full-time in a 5th wheel and never winterize it as we keep it nice and warm all winter and cool in the summer.

Cold enough to freeze water but there was no duration to the event. Warm enough during the day to have warmth built up inside the trailer and only went below freezing for a few hours during the night. So a hard freeze would not occur. Now if it stayed 27 for an extended time.....

In my mind anything below 60* is freezing.
Comfort zone starts at 78*.

LOL! I don't start wearing long pants until it's consistently under 50 degrees F. And sitting at a desk all day, I prefer it to be around 68!

Of course, I'm a wimp in the heat.

Funny how people get acclimated to a place. When we traveled the southwest the other summer for several weeks, I was surprised that I actually started to feel like I was getting used to the oppressive heat.

Living in NW Oregon, anything over 85 degrees is sweltering...
