Unable to dump black water tank before 20 deg. forecast

It will be very difficult for me to dump my black water tank in time. Is it possible to get by solely with antifreeze down the toilet this time?

F&F is the tank full now? Are you using the trailer? If you can leave the furnace on it will send some heat down into the holding tank area between that and a generous amout of antifreeze you might be alright. How about the freshwater system is it winterized?

My wife convinced me to just make time for it, especially since my furnace won't fire (likely due to needing batteries I believe) I had better just do it right or I'm sure I will end up paying for it.. Thanks for the help!

Wifey had good advice. You were probably ok with temps just down to 20 overnight, but when you weigh the cost of getting unlucky compared to Just Gettin' It Done, getting it done wins, hands down.

Good for her. And you.

Somebody, please, point me to the road.
