I disconnected the city water feed, but that's it. I'm thinking the water heater and the lines now are full of stagnant water. We will not be out for several weeks. Should I somehow drain the lines? I don't expect freezing temps again this season, but am wondering about leaving that water in there.

Thanks in advance from a newb.
Look around the skirt of your rv, there should be a couple of tubes with valves hanging down. Those are your low point drains. You open them and run the pump or hook up a compressor to your city water connection.

As for the hot water heater you will definitly want to drain it as you dont want your anode rod sitting in water when the tank is not in use as this will shorten its life span unnecessarily.
