          I’ve been camping every weekend lately because the weather has been ridiculously nice for this time of year. I’ll be taking the trailer out again this weekend, but it looks like its going to dip below 30 degrees. Should I worry about my water lines freezing and bursting?

              There are a lot of factors at play here, but a good rule of thumb is if temps are just below freezing (32F) for roughly 24 hours your pipes are at risk of freezing.

                  If the temps will only dip just below freezing over night you should be fine. I’d disconnect the hose from the fresh water supply though (if you’re hooking up to city water). Not sure what you have but some rigs have their tank in a heated area (kept warm by the furnace).
