Assuming you could open the valve, why couldn’t you just run hot water down the sink?

Well , what we did was find a new campground and then go to the local box store ( camping world ) to buy a new hose . After some soap and pliers we were able to secure a new cheap dump hose on the Theford ? why I don't know weird size connector . But , you know at the end of the day all is good . discovered a new Pub in New Jersey with great beer and food . Now tell me what changes in Latitude or Longitude have you had the past year

Winter is fun in a BB.
In 2010 we spent the entire winter in the mountains in NH. Below zero night after night. Single digit temps for several weeks at a time. We were parked outside my investment property in NH. But we had access to the laundry room. Obviously this served well for laundry duties. But we still had to contend with the cold since we were living in the coach. When it came time to fill the fresh water, we hooked up to the faucet in the laundry room. Then rolled the hose up and store it in the laundry room. Dumping the gray water was no big deal. We had a separate hose for that. Just watered the trees in the woods. Then stored that hose in the laundry room as well. Dumping the black tank was a different story. We had to unhook everything and drive a few mile to the local sewer plant. They had a free RV dump. We never had a problem with frozen holding tanks or drain valves. We kept either a bit of antifreeze or some salt solution in them. Never had a frozen pipe in the coach either. And the local propane dealer would deliver propane to the coach so I didn't have to move it for that. Everything considered it wasn't a bad experience. However, I would not voluntarily do it again. We've become too accustomed to the warm weather in the south.
