Denver CO Freeze Watch - Time to Winterize??

I just received an alert on my phone that the Denver area is under a freeze watch Friday night into Saturday morning. The high Friday will be 43 with lows that night down to 24-28. The watch is from 9pm Fri to 9am Sat. High Saturday will be 55 and the forecast does not show the temps going below freezing again anytime soon.

Last night before driving the RV to storage I opened the low point drains and emptied the water heater. Do I need to head back tonight with some RV antifreeze or do you think it will be okay for the 12 hours we're below freezing??

Do you want to gamble on some $$$$ repairs on ruptured fittings, H2O pump etc? You are going to have to winterize it eventually. Your call!

I winterized my outfit the other day here in Idaho.

I would get some antifreeze in that water pump, and might as well splash some in the P-traps while you're there. Everything else should be ok for this short freeze, but it looks like our weather pattern is a changing.
