Possible frozen can food in motor home


In side my MH it was 32 degrees this morning at 8am. Out side it was 16.

A plastic bottle, halft full of water in the sink was frozen. Don't know if it was colder than 32 insideMH early this morning.

At 12 noon it was 37 in MH so I got a few cans out from under the dinnet seats; they wern't frozen. It Unless they thawed out that quick in 4 hrs.

Of course I should of checked the cans at that time (8 am). just not thinking

Cans were not buldging at seams. But my head was.

Thanks in advance.

Best to remove anything that has the potential to freeze, less to clean up in the spring.

Most canned foods have enough salt in them that the freezing point will be well below 32.

X2. And, I once left canned food in my camper all winter long and it froze solid. The next year the food was safe to eat but, the freezing process made it all into mush. But, that was at a much colder temp then what you got to. You'r fine but, remove it the next time. I keep my canned food in a tote so I can just carry it all in the house over the winter.
