Cold Weather Trip?

I will be taking a trip to North Alabama in January where it will get colder than where I live at. It could be for only a few days to a few weeks and I don't know if the weather will get cold or not. As far as I know the Tiffin Allegro Open Road models do not have any heat pumped into the outside compartments from the furnace. Is this correct?

If there is no heat for the outside compartments what will I need to protect besides the wet bay and freshwater compartments? What about the hydraulic compartment?

I plan on making a multi (3 or 4) light board to put in the wet bay. I don't know what to do about the freshwater compartment. My refrigerator has a note saying something about a heater protecting it from freezing, so it may be OK. I will use electric heaters inside as well as the propane heat and will open the cabinet doors at the kitchen and bath sinks.

What else will I need to do?

Does your owners manual have any info for you or call MFG for their advise.
Most coach's have some type of protection for tanks by furnace heat or heat pads under tanks.
You will not be this cold but link may give you some tips.
