Water tank

Our Rv is now winterized and we will be heading south west from ontario Canada soon after Christmas. Last year water was hard to get because of the cold. If I fill tank before I leave and run furnace will it be ok??

I wouldn't chance it...get some gallon jugs of water and dump in the toilet and sinks as needed and carry inside until you get to warm enough weather. I would be more worried about a line freezing than the tank. The gallons will stay thawed inside and you will avoid big fix-it it bills. I live in MN and wouldn't chnace it.

If your tank is large and you bay is heated you should be fine.Its harder to freeze a large quantity of water. I have went several days in below freezing temperatures with water in my tank without problems

When we leave Alaska early in the spring, we do not flush/fill our water tank. We get gallon jugs of water and a couple cases of bottled water to hold us over until we get further south and warm weather. There have been times that we still had very cold temp in Dawson Creek in April. I for one do not want to chance freezing our water tank and having to make repairs while on vacation.
