Dumb question

After my last campout I drained the water heater. Bypassed it and blew out the lines. I plan on using the trailer on Christmas.
Should I add anti freeze now? Or wait after I use for the last time? It will get below freezing here in Northern California between now and then.
The only thing with water in it currently is 5 gallons in the fresh tank and the "P" traps.

Guessing your grey and black tanks are empty too all I would do is add antifreeze to the traps and drain the fresh tank and you should be good for cold temps.

Question, how cold for how long?

Might consider blowing out the lines and just pouring antifreeze down the drains.

Make sure to drain the tanks. The outside shower will freeze first.

You might consider running small electric heater in it with the cabinet doors open, just to keep it above extreme cold.
