Brief bout of cold weather

So..I just dewinterized in prep for my first trip out for the year.still new at this.and now the weather is saying below freezing tonight and tomorrow night.
My question.do I need to worry about it being below freezing for about 12 hrs.2 days in a row? 2015 thor winsport 34f with outdoor kitchen.the fresh tank is below the bed in the coach and I figure a small heater inside just to keep inside above freezing but I don't know about any lines that might be run below the floor like to the outside shower or the outside kitchen. Any thoughts?

I think I would at least blow air through the lines to remove any standing water. It won't take long to do and might give you peace of mind. Keep air pressure around 32psi.

Use the small heater and leave some faucets open (both hot and cold). That would give the water someplace to expand into/away from. Open up cupboards to let the heat into where the plumbing is. Under the coach you can also use a clamp on 100W lamp aimed at some lines/areas.

Even if you don't have heaters on the waste tanks I think those will be just fine--the waste tanks aren't a closed system.

Usually it isn't below freezing for the entire night; it gradually falls and is coldest right before sunrise.
