Cold weather travel

I have a 2013 Redwood 36rl. Is it safe to travel starting at around 26* if I will hit above freezing temps within a few hours? I am full timing and the unit will be warm. I really cant believe anything could freeze that quickly. Just looking for some feed back. THANKS!

Blow the water lines out, drain the tanks including the fresh, and pour some pink stuff (RV/Marine Antifreeze) down the drains.
Turn on the furnace, put it on its lowest setting, usually around 50* or so and hit the road.

Since you are living in the unit and it is warm nothing will freeze in just a few hours. Just close it up and hit the road.

Do it that way all the time. Sleep in it on the trip at 15-20f many times. Just put furnace on at night to warm up and again in morning.
