Winter camping in the 250RB

We plan to take our 250RB to Hot Springs, NC this weekend. However, high temps in the mid-40's with lows in the mid 20's. It's not ideal camping weather but will I have problems with lines freezing up? I don't have heated tanks on my unit as it was an option. Thoughts....concerns?

Have not used my new 250rb, but there is an enclosed underbelly. Heat comes up through vents in floor and it is insulated good. Was told that it is made for year round camping.

If you run your furnace at night, The radiant heat and enclosed under belly will keep everything from freezing. You will have to disconnect your water hose from the city hookup if you are going to supply water that way and just use your fresh water tank and pump at night or you can buy heat tape for the external hose, but everything in your trailer will be fine.

We have dry camped at those temps for years without any trouble. Bring the dog's water bowl in at night unless you want to watch her chew through the ice to get a drink in the morning.

Thanks for the insight! I plan to fill my fresh water tanks and then unhook the water hose from the source. If I keep the camper toasty we should be fine. Looking forward to warmer camping for sure!
