Parking In Moderately Cold Climate

I am sure that this question has been asked and answered somewhere in the forum, but I have been unable to find it, so I will ask it here.

We are planning to spend the winter in our new coach in Panama City Beach, FL. We have been told that at times if can get below freezing there although not too often. My question is how do you deal with that if you are setup with normal hookups? Water and sewer are my main concern. How cold can it get without having to do anything special and if it gets below that temperature what do you do other than move further south?

Thanks in advance

We ran into some below freezing nights & days in the mid-30's for a stretch in the mountains of WV one fall. We just filled the fresh tank & used the water from that since it's in a bay heated by the propane furnace ducting. Hooked up a 60watt bulb trouble light & kept that in the wet bay to keep it above freezing in there so the dump valves wouldn't freeze. We unhooked & put away both the water hose & the dump hose. When the tanks were full, we dumped during the day when the temps were above freezing.

How is it one careless match can start a forest fire but it takes a whole box to start a campfire?

That's what I do here in Pensacola the few nights that might be a problem. Make sure your propane is full. Running the heaters can drain them pretty fast. You may want to look into an extend-a-stay and a larger supplimental tank if you're going to be in one spot awhile and it stays on the cool side like it did last winter.
