Freeze Protection

We live outside of Houston, Texas and keep our 2002 Winnebago Journey in a storage lot (covered but not enclosed). I drained all of the water out and left all of the faucets open before taking it to storage. Doesn't usually get that cold here, but it is forecasted to get into the low/mid 20's for 4-5 hours over the next two nights. Have I done enough to protect our RV or should I have done more? Thanks for any help guys...

For your location, think about leaving the furnace on, set at 55 or 60. two nights should not hurt the batteries

Heat on it's lowest setting would help. You drained the water tank and lines, but did you blow them out with air to eliminate water in lines? Antifreeze in the drain traps? If you can plug in to shore power a few light bulbs or a space heater would work. If you don't have access to 120 v, your batteries will be depleted by furnace fan after a day or so if you don't keep them charged.

Freeze Protection

Did not blow the lines out and don't have shore power. Our weather fluctuates so much here, I didn't think that I would not need to do more than drain the water. Lows in low/mid 20's for 4-5 hours Monday and Tuesday then back to the 60's/70's Wed thru Thurs. Thanks for the feedback guys..
