I can't believe I'm reading this. Someone in cold climate not having the MH winterized. After low point drains are drained, it takes me about 10 minutes to pump the RZ anti-freeze through the lines. Jim

What make and model is your motorhome,do you know if it has the heat blankets in the water tank.My main concern would be the hot water heater,i would pull the plug on the bottom of that sucker now and see if any water runs out.If your right and its staying 58 deg. in there you may have dodged a bullet.

Theres no hot water heater. Bought as a project its a 87 Fleetwood bounder 30 ft. 454 powerplant. Repainted livingroom kitchen, bathroom and bedroom. New tile in kitchen and bathroom. Water pump kicked on when i got it but no water through faucets. Could have already been frozen or a host of other things. Changed oil with lucas, because lucas coats rather then rolls off. Tune up, air filter and carb rebuild, new headers and gaskets, head gaskets, valve cover gaskets. What i have done so far. Back brakes squeak when you let off after stopping. Ill address this issue in warmer temps. Just wondering if 52-55 would be sufficient for time being. heres some before and after. Styrofoam is to better insulate windows. Works rather well. lol. Gf put wrap on cabinets. Looks alright. $800.00 Craigslist buy.

No problem, things has frozen years ago and you can do what ever you wish without farther damage.

As for traps freezing, surfaces freeze first leaving the middle of the water column to expand and crack the rigid pipe. Besides they are inexpensive to replace. This is quite different from the long pliable pipes in the interior walls which are expensive to repair.

62 Inside the rv. Shoveled snow against garage doors help with insulation. Seems to be holding good.

Quite a test you are running. We are in Texas and the wind chill is 15F so lots of the country is colder that usual.
