This week, temperatures are supposed to get down to 29 over night, though I doubt they'll be that cold for long. I can't really winterize it, but I was thinking it may be best to turn off the pump and open the faucets so the lines don't freeze. The trailer has the liner underneath so they have SOME protection. Any thoughts?
It will take several hours of below freezing temps to start freezing up things inside the RV. The RV contents itself inside will keep the temps inside from getting as cold as it is outside for several hours.
So if it's only going to get down to 29 overnight and then rise above freezing again after sunrise, you are fine. A good example would be a bird bath. Unlike your plumbing inside the RV, the bird bath is completely exposed to the elements and may skim over a bit if temps fall below freezing for a few hours but will not freeze solid until temps are below freezing for much longer.
