Thanks everyone.

I'm not planning on doing anything in really cold weather. Maybe mid 20s at night, and above freezing during the day.

We were planning on doing a trip this weekend into next week, but we are forcasted one of the days to have a hi for 31 and a low of 17, just a bit too cold for the whole family.

Must be a low point drain somewhere however when all else fails turn a tap on & pump it out then dump holding tank.

Seriously, you never drain the fresh water tank. I assure you there is a lever or valve somewhere to drain it. It would be dangerous to leave water in the tank indefinitely I would think; bacteria, etc. eventually. I drain mine after any use unless I'm going back out within a week or so. Re check the manual. Am I missing something?
If a water tank is full, it would take a long long time of really cold weather to freeze it but not the case with water in the lines.
