Yeah. I would make sure I had water in my fresh water tank and put the hose in the basement. Don't need to keep one dripping.

Use your water tank and drain and disconnect your hose. Letting the water drip is a good way to freeze your drain shut if the cold lasts longer than what you are expecting.

In Philly. 26deg this morning. Same model monty next to me frozen water supply hose last night. Water spraying from the faucet joint this morning.
KOA maintenance turned off the water and knocked on their door and told them.
I have been filling the freshwater tank and using it then draining and storing the hose rather than dealing with the heated hose.
I'm leaving this morning and heading south to Va Beach. I still have my sewer hose hooked up. I should have disconnected and flushed it yesterday before the freezing temps rolled in.
Lesson learned....

You folks on the eastern side of the country are getting hit hard with the cold weather. It was cold here in Lake Havasu this morning down to 59 degrees.
Sorry I just had to do that.

We think our lines are froze up going into water tank how can I get to that without taking off bottom of trailer. We sent a wire down as long as we had and nothing there froze so must be around tank and have no longer wire.

What is your forecast high temp? Unless you are in for a long period of teens or lower, I would just keep your furnace going.

The only thing I can think of is maybe a couple of hair dryers blowing into the holes where the hydraulic rams come out. Which when you look into the hole you can see light coming from the holes on the other side. Makes me wonder how well insulation the underbelly is. Nada...
BTW this morning the sewer line was frozen. I always make a u trap at the drain. Had to put a heater onto it to thaw it before disconnecting and flushing. Tonight in Dumfries. 24deg. Oh boy
