Default Freeze protection???

It is supposed to dip down to 32 degf later this week here. 60 degf days/32 degf nights. My coach is inside but not plugged in or heated. What are chances of freezing for two days? I am not ready to winterrize it yet.

Jerry, I don't think there is much danger at 32 degrees. Doubt that it would be that cold inside a building if it were warming to 60 during the day.

Short answer is zero chance of freezing. I was outside last week in mountains of NC, high 50's during the day 22 overnight. No problems.


Its gotta be colder, longer to worry about it.

Default Freeze protection???

The 10 day forecast here in the foothills of the Appalachians is calling for about 5-7 nights below freezing (30 - 25 degrees F). But highs each day in the 45-55 degree range. I'm not ready to winterize either. My 'bird stays outside but plugged up. Toe heaters on in the front and bath, ceramic milking heater in the basement. 40 Watt bulbs on in the water pump compartment and the outside wash station compartment. I will most likely turn my primus on each night with about a 55 degree setting. I will pour some pink stuff down the drains and into the toilet.

I always begin to worry this time of year about busted pipes. Propane goes fast when your heating, but I'd rather be safe than sorry.

Go away, winter, I hate you!
