Question about winterizing

I have a 2019 X17Z and also have the glacier package. My question is... if I turn the heater on for the one evening that the temps are going to get down to 32 will the pipes and tanks be ok? I was told that the heater is ducted also to the tanks, so all I need to do is turn the heat on. (Hmm I am not very trusting) Just need some clarity on the glacier package. I know that itís not a four season camper. Just not ready to winterize for one night when the temps will get back into the forties at night and I still want to use it a little longer. Thank you in advance.

At 32 it will take many hours before anything freezes. you should be good!

X2. In fact standing water outside might only develop a thin layer of ice. Nothing will happen to the water inside the pipes unless it stays at 32 for several days.

On top of this, if the temperature is predicted to get to 32, that means it may only be 32 for an hour or so. There's no way anything freezes solid enough to cause a problem, particularly if you have the heat running in the camper.

Just to be safe, it would probably be a good idea to open your bathroom and kitchen sink cabinets, to let the heat get to the pipes.

We have the big cousin (23B) without the enclosed underbelly. We have been out many nights with the overnight lows in the low 20's. with daytime highs in the 40's. Never have had an issue. We do keep our FW tank full. We do not use the hose, nor connected to a sewer system. We also keep our cabinet doors ajar on the much cooler nights, just to ensure a little extra heat gets back to the various pipes.

Never have had any issues.
