I have ours on a lake in north Louisiana all winter. I'm retired so we go and stay for a week or so when the weather is not too cold. The coldest so far when we were there was 25 degrees. I have the 3/4" PVC insulation over my water hose and my two gray tank valves stay open. No problem witch freezing. When we leave, I undo and drain the water hose, low point drains and water heater. Then I open the black tank valve and flush it, leaving it open. My sewer hose stays hooked up. It's about a 4' run from camper to the sewer drain with a big drop, so no water stays trapped in it. My son and his buddy will be there this weekend fishing.

Checked on my today after we received 10 inches of snow last week. My propane cover was blown off (bottles are at home) and all the snow melted off the roof....thankfully no leaks! I did notice someone's footprints in the snow that lead to my TT door then to the boat next to mine....makes me a bit nervous but I've been in the same place for almost a year with no problems.

Would love to spend the night in our camper. Does anyone else sleep in there camper during the winter
We are using ours this winter in the white mountains of New Hampshire. As I am typing this they are currently expecting 18"+ of snow. We are heading up there tomorrow night to spend 6 nights in it. This will be our longest winter trip. Have only spent a couple nights previously.
