As always, thank you all so much! Wingnut, we did just fine with the RV pink stuff and opening the low point drains. I was surprised just how much came out of the lines too! The first night (Tuesday) it didn't get quite below freezing, but last night, WOW! It was still only 26d when I left for work this morning at 7:10am. One thing in our favor is that the sun was brightly shining down on the trailer all day yesterday, and again this morning.... I think we've made it past the scare now.
Smonagle: I am greatly blessed to live where I can reasonably use the trailer year round, and I don't take it for granted. My beloved grew up in Michigan, and we still get up there about once a year, usually around Christmas time. I think the good Lord knew exactly what He was doing when He let me be born down south... one week of that white stuff and I'm over the "oh how pretty's" and the "its just beautiful's", and I'm ready to get back home... We do have the summer heat to contend with, and so I agree with Wingnut... it evens out. I'm just grateful to be on the warmer end of it all... HA HA!

The next thing to think about, when ready to use it again, is to refill the system. Hook up a water hose and turn it on--open faucets til the water stream quits sputtering. Do the same for both hot and cold. If it all goes right, you will get a steady stream quickly and can turn the faucet off. The hot water is a lot more pesky, as the heater has to fill before it quits spitting air. IF you DON'T get most of the air out of the water heater (some will stay in as an air pocket) it will continue to sputter each time you use it, because the air will compress and the heater will not fill correctly til you let the excess air out thru a faucet.
