cold weather questions

Any experienced rv/travel trailer campers awake? Going to be in the 20s. Anything we need to do to keep water lines from freezing? Rockwood with tank heaters underneath.

Heat the coach to 50 and put a light bulb, lit in any bay that has water pipes or drain the lines.

I returned from fla to Connecticut 20 days ago and decided not to winterized as I thought it would warm up in a few days .
I set the heat on 45 and put a 60 watt light bulb in water bay the interior of coach stays at 45 and water bay at 49 with bulb and 42 without
I just had to refill the propane and it cost $90 maybe I should have winterized !
Hopefully it warms up soon !
I used to love winter ! Not any more

I hear you, used to enjoy snowmobiling, spend all day outside at -20 for fun. Now I pack up and head south before the first frost.

We used to ride in Quebec every winter over 5000 miles a season from motel to motel and just loves it but I can't take the cold anymore
Just sold the 3 sleds and trailer this winter
It was a sad day !

We just got down to Florida Sunday. I was hoping for an early spring but that wasn't happening so we left the NE and saw all those RV's going North. I told the DW that those folks were making a big mistake. why leave the warmth only to drive into snow and freezing temps????

It is not to warm down here today (52*) but wow, more snow up in frosty land!!! U shoulda couda winterized or stayed down here.

In that case just keep it warm inside and the light bulbs on in any bay that has water lines.
