28F here last night....

...and saving our garden negated any work on La Tortuga. The tanks are all empty but I meant to pour some Rv antifreeze into the system, but didn't get to it.
Keeping my fingers crossed.

'Bout the same here a couple of nights ago. I managed to blow out all the lines (now PEX) and add some pink stuff to the traps beforehand. The aftermath of the current storm ought to do it again to us this weekend.

Much closer to 28C than 28F at night here... I'm kinda jealous. At least we're getting back toward decent camping weather.

28° F overnight wouldn't cause any problem. The thermal inertia of the mass of your Airstream will keep the inside a fair bit warmer than that. Just trying to fun our Texas commenters that the 30s is warm.

A sign of things to come? Sure is.

That's encouraging news. We're in the northern Rockies and our autumn comes early at times. I finally found Rv antifreeze after discovering that the local Rv guy does not sell the stuff. He only uses it to service rv's, except AS's are a mystery to him and he knows squat about hitches, we'd or otherwise.
Avoid him, he's a waste of time.

I'm not from Texas, but Louisiana ain't much different from our neighbor to the west, just more humid. Our overnight lows right now are around 75°F and our daytime highs are still almost 90°F.

Still, I can remember back in the last Ice Age when 30°F was warm. I lived in northern Maine for four years as a kid, when my dad was stationed at Loring AFB. We lived in an uninsulated 38'×8' mobile home, and I can still remember getting out to pile snow higher against the trailer walls to block the wind. Frost on the inside walls all winter, melting snow in a pot on the stove for bathing water. Bright orange flags on all four fenders of the family car so the snowplows don't run over it when they clear the roads. Oh, the joys of 24/7 below-freezing temps for three months straight…

I don't miss it. At all. Except being able to sometimes see the Aurora Borealis from our front yard. That was nice.
