Freezing temperatures expected

Hi from Canada. My 2019 Thor 24TF Gemini is parked for the next couple weeks and we are expecting temperatures a degree or two below freezing for the next few nights. Any precautions I should be taking? Opening tap lines? Emptying reservoirs? Any experienced advice appreciated. Our first year with this thing, and loving it so far!

Welcome to the Forum!
If it's only a degree or two, and it warms back up during the day: you should be fine.
But just to be safe: I'd open up the low point drains... It would give any water a place to expand and/or drain.

What Bob said. We've already had several nights below freezing. And that's all I do. Have had no problems. But I'll be winterizing it soon before it gets too cold.

I've got almost 6 weeks until my rig goes into storage.
Sometimes: you just have to have faith...

How do you define "cooler"?
Is it 101 degrees?

When I finally get to retire: I'm strapping a snow shovel on the front of the RV. and heading South...
When somebody asks me what that thing is: THAT's where I'm dropping the levelers!

As a fellow Canadian living in the states for 30 years my advice is head south btw I have only shoveled snow once in that time I usually opt out for the it will melt the next day
Good luck and there is alot of great threads on winterizing on this forum
