Turn on the heat! 29 is barely below freezing.

When we moved from So Cal to Wisc we had the same concern. It turns out if the low is only for an hour or so it will not affect the plumbing. If the day and night temp is going to be below 32 deg then get that trailer winterized right away.

Fill the fresh water tank then disconnect the water hose and drain it. Let the furnace run tonight. Everything should be fine.

You must be a long way from home since the only location in the lower 48 with that forecast low is along the border of Oregon/California.

add edit:
I don't know if you have a macerator pump for your sewer outlet. I have no experience with those. If you do, hopefully someone will offer advice.

You will be fine

Keep the furnace on and enjoy it.

If it is going to stay below 32F for a while, a heated water hose is a good idea.

Even in the pic below when it was 8F outside we had no problems, just got through a lot of propane

What everyone else said.

It's an adventure...get a picture of your Airstream in the snow, and prepare to share your story around a campfire.


🏡 🚐 Cherish and appreciate those you love. This moment could be your last.🌹🐚❤️
