I'm in the Dallas area. Well, 30 miles south of it anyway. We're going to Enchanted Rock State Natural Area for Thanksgiving. Staying in an RV Park. So, we'll be down your way in a few days.

Of all the things to maybe worry about the hot water heater would be lowest on my list. The thermal mass of the full tank is your friend. It will take time for it to lose enough heat to freeze into ice.

The thermal mass of the trailer itself is also on your side.

From the scenario that you describe, you will not get a hard freeze or any freeze thaw cycles.

"What would you do in this situation."

Since you asked.

I would do nothing and not give it a second thought.

Very nice! We're in Cedar Park just north of Austin.

Which RV park? Have you camped there before? We've been talking about taking the kids and their friends camping to Enchanted Rock but they don't allow travel trailers (only tents).

Have a Happy Thanksgiving!

When you open the low point drains make sure to crack each tap to allow the system to drain properly........ Ask me how I know.
