Possible Freeze Warning - Do I have a problem?

I know, kinda wide open but...

Temps forecasted to get down to 30-32 degrees from 3 am to 7 am. Rig is parked in storage with fresh water tank nearly full (about 80 Gal), empty grey and black tanks and some water in the lines. I do not have access to shore power. It was un-winterized a couple weeks ago by dealer before we picked it up.

Do have have real problem?

I can go out to the rig and start it up if needed.

Any thoughts or suggestions?

If the weather stays below freezing for 24>36 hrs, I would consider running the furnace, draining the fresh tank, and opening the low point drains on the hot and cold lines and all the taps. Run the 12v waterpump tll it sucks air. then you'll realy be fine, but for a short freeze I wouldn't bother with any RV A/F.

Mine has been colder than that for longer than that with no problems, so far.......

I have a "C" though so I can lift the mattress and dinette seat where the water heater and tank is so the daytime heat gets them warmer. That way it takes longer for them to cool down too.

If it's at or above freezing during the day the interior temps will reach 50 deg. on a sunny day, then if it gets down to freezing overnight the coach never gets below 35 or so.

My home refrigerator won't make ice in 3 hours, I don't think you have to worry about your motorhome freezing encased water lines.
