Am I worrying too much?

Got the RV de-winterized, and now it's freezing up here! It's still at the shop, so can't plug it in.

Does it warm above freezing during the day? You might be ok if the below freezing temps are only for a few hours overnight & day temps are above freezing. Also, if it's at the shop, can they bring it inside a bay instead of leaving it out in the yard? That's what our dealer did last fall when we took it for some warranty work before we winterized & we got a cold snap dropping night time temps into the low 20's with daytime just barely reaching 30.

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

So how about calling the nice folks who are going to cash the big check, and asking for their help? They should be delighted to drain the system or blow out the residual water for you.

Hi Purplefans & Harvey,
Put a saucer of water in the holding tank bay. If the water does not freeze you will have no problem. In Florida, it take 5 hours at 29 degrees F before fruit on the tree starts to damage. All the coach plumbing is inside the coach. It takes a lot of cold for a long time to freeze the lines, etc.
