Sprinter in colder weather

If the Jackson Wyoming forecast is for "light snow" in September is this a worry:?chains for dually

if daytime temp is 55 and nighttime is 28, do I need to worry about water hoses etc if full hookup?

Thank you in advance

Depending on what light snow is , chains would not be required.
You should be good in those temps for the water hookup. Depending on how long the temp stays below freezing will determine if your lines freeze or not. They may freeze overnight , but will thaw fairly quickly once the temp gets above freezing.

in freezing temps it's a good idea to disconnect your water overnight and reconnect in the am.
If the day temps are above 32 you shouldn't have an issue....

I put a "heavy duty" (resistant to breaking, etc available at any hardware store worth their salt) light bulb in a trouble light housing and stick it in the water bay, it keeps it above freezing... it's worked for me down to 18 degrees at night and above freezing during the day.

keep your heat on inside the rv
