We had ours connected with gray tank valve open in freezing weather. There was no water standing in the clear part of the sewer solution connector or the extension. The hose was sloped to drain fully. I did have tank heaters on as a precaution. No issues, but looking back it would have been better to disconnect and drain. Keep tank dump valves shut and heaters on. My International has exposed dump valves so that is a concern. We went down to 26 Fahrenheit on that trip most nights. Ran on full fresh water tank to avoid freezing up fresh water supply hose.

Ya, I wouldn't want to leave any tanks open below freezing. Perfect conduit for cold temps to freeze the inside of the tanks.

True that, but gray tank was totally empty, and the sewer solution kinda kept cold air out of it. The only real surprise on the trip was a frozen supply hose that recovered when the sun came out. I pulled the Camco water filter inside, but stupidly left the hose outside. This was a late season trip to family in Northern Alabama, and the freezing weather was a bonus.....
