Weather in Reno

Hello. I will be in Reno, NV on 10/26-10/27 and see that the lows will be 29-33 degrees. The highs will be well above that but I was wondering if I should still be worried about my tanks freezing. Any advice would be most appreciated. Thanks in advance!

You have nothing to worry about.

I agree...you should be fine. Daytime temps are still hitting toasty 60. We're headed there on Monday and down 395...can't wait!

I am in Truckee just up the road. No problems with anything in your motorhome. As others have said, if anything, turn off you water at the spigot and disconnect your hose at the bib and let it drain. You do not need to pick it up. At this time of the year this is probably even over kill. I haven't even turned off my sprinklers yet!

Thanks for all the information, everyone! We've never been to Reno so we had no idea what to expect.

Normally an RV can take a few nights at several degrees below the freezing point if the day time temps are in the 40s or better. As posted above disconnect the water hose.
