Cold snap and out of town

Our weather forecast in Arkansas has us in a cold snap with the temps dropping tonight below freezing starting at midnight until 0800 am, with a low of 26. Today during the day it got into the upper 40's after 70's Sunday. My 28Bhs is sitting at a storage lot. We used it last week and while I emptied everything and opened low point drains, I did not blow lines or add pink stuff. I'm out of town so no way of taking care of it tonight. Am I at risk of freeze damage with the temps dropping below freezing for 6-7 hours?

I am saying no. Too short of time and not a deep enough freeze.

I would normally say you should be ok under the conditions you described, but it can happen. Next time you use the TT just take an extra peak at all your water line connections, pump area, etc., look for any suspect moisture.

Also, some folks overlook the exposed exterior plastic grey/black dump valves when they get caught in freezing period, check them as well.
