It has been suggested that we run some whisky through it.
Is there a better way other than keeping it in the truck/motels for 3 day?

How would it freeze if there's no water in it?

I'd imagine if it were a concern, I'd buy an insulated ice chest it would fit into and let it live there until I needed to use it.

We had a drip coffee maker freeze one year, even though we thought we had emptied it. Personally I would put it someplace warm, unless you don't really care if it has to be replaced.

The lowest end Kuring is one where you pour your water in and it uses it all up running itsel dry (you will hear the pump run free(

All the others water remains in the pump housing and there is no way to get rid of it as they have 'out of water' Detectors and no drain plug.

So go with the low end or as I did with a "Knock Off" (Tru from Fred's, a southern store) or forget the Keurig and stop filling landfills with empty I-Cups (The Tru has a mesh filter and and can use Ground coffee)
And use a common 4=cup Auto Drip

On on the Tru I found using the mesh filter lets finly ground coffee into the cup so I lined it with a #2 Filter

You can also use a Melitta Pour Over Coffee Cone Brewer and a teakettle (electric or stove top)

There are other brands as well. This one uses a cone filter (Also #2) if you keep hot water handy (20 or 30 cup party perk?) You have a fresh cup fast as you can pour it.

We had one freeze and break even though we were sure it was drained.

Wa8 Don’t worry about us filling landfills with cups.
I cut them open, shake out and compost the grounds.
Then because there is a tiny amount of oil in each cup I use them to help start the fires in the wood stove we heat our house with.
I love to watch the black smoke going skyward and the spreading out all over the country side from witch the product originally came from.
Although if I run out of Kcups I burn railway ties and they really pour out the black smoke!!
I’d advise to only burn those at night so your neighbors don’t see the black smoke.
But it sure does through the heat when it’s -40 degrees out side.

It will still freeze unless there is a heat source inside the cooler.
