Last week I had my fiver in for its yearly inspection, while they had it I had unit de-winterized to solve pump problems. These frigid temps hovering around 32 during the night have me paranoid. Am I needlessly worrying?

If it only dips into the 30-32 range for a short while overnight but at least climbs into the 40s-50s during the day, probably no problem though I would drain the system thru the low point drains and the HW heater plug

Each year I dewinterize my trailer and each year we get a cold snap where the overnight temperatures may reach the upper 20's for a couple hours. I've discovered that this causes no damage in my trailer. However, if the forecast calls for several hours in the 20's I will turn on the furnace to the lowest setting (55) during the overnight hours. I also open the cabinet doors and raise the bed to warm the hidden water lines.
