Texas weather is pretty unpredictable, but we usually have pretty good weather till late January here in central Texas(the WBCCI midwinter rally is January 10-14 in Conroe, SE of Dallas). Our unit is planning to attend that rally and serve one of the meals. This year, we had a forum rally in January.

The I-20 into Dallas leg and the I-10 portion just west of that probably risk the worst weather since fronts come down through the panhandle and often stall out about along that line. Worst case, you might get a bit of sleet or temporary road icing with a real strong front. Not real likely, though. Subsoil will be too warm for any long-term icing. Risk is highest on the return trip.

I would watch the weather and winterize the trailer only if some real cold nights are predicted. Good chance you will get away without doing so.

Thumbs up Thanks

Thanks to all for your good advice. Based on your response I will take the trailer to North Carilina this month to jump start the Florida trip in December, avoiding any bad weather in NJ.

I believe that is an excellent plan. I've been in Texas over 22 yrs. but spent most of my 'formitive' years north of Boston, dad was in the Navy??!! Minimal 'winterization' techniques are required when South of the Mason/Dixon. Also, I don't drive in snow & ice anymore, I just wait a day or two!
