Water in tub drain and toilet after tanks have been drained

I have a Baja, 14 ft; I am winterizing it, have drained everything including hot water tank.I see water remaining in the shower/tub drain and when I open the toilet flush there is water there also.
Not sure if I need to worry about that freezing? I will be using air to dry out the lines.
What do I do about the water in the tub and toilet?
Do I have to bypass the hot water when I blow air through the pipes?

Thanks
Shamrock

Even if you blow the lines with air, you still have to use the pink antifreeze. Be sure you put a couple of cups in each drain and holding tanks. Also put some in the toilet which keeps the seal moisten. Read the manual there are no short cuts.

Follow up question? As a first timer, I'll be using it most weekends during the winter. If the living area is above freezing, is there anything I need to do?

Welcome to the forum. If temps will remain above freezing and you will continue to use the trailer you are good to go. Just keep up with regular maintanace.

Wow - Thanks for the quick response. I guess what I meant was that temps may get somewhat below freezing (mid teens' in central Texas) but the living area will be above freezing. Are there pipes in the non-living area that could freeze? Like in a house, if I keep a facet dripping, with that be sufficient?

Sorry that was me I misread your post. Yes, the grey tank plumbing and black tank plumbing could freeze as well as the fresh water hose if you are connected to a spigot. If you have the heated and enclosed underbelly the tanks should be ok IF the furnace is kept on. Models vary in their ability to camp in Winter.
