For those wondering why the OP lets his trailer get so cold while he’s using it, it appears to be because when the temps are really low he stays in a motel. I suspect this is why he mentioned keeping it in the truck/motel for 3 days, probably while heading south.

And you read the OPs post. I believe that’s what he was getting at, but generally his posts are cryptic open-ended questions. Not unlike this query.

Run some RV antifreeze through it. JK

Why would you be staying in motel rooms when you're pulling a place to sleep with a furnace ?
The coffee maker would be the least of my worries if my fully stocked trailer was subject to freezing temps.

If you must and talking one night stays, simply set your furnace on a low setting " above freezing ".
One night on a low setting will not kill a charged DC battery....I've done it.

I don’t have a trailer but do have a Class B. Generally when we leave for Florida the temp is 15-20 F. When we arrive at our first overnight the coach is warm and I plug in and put on the Truma furnace on electric. Even with this we usually stay winterized for the first two nights but we are nice and warm. I can’t imagine dragging a trailer all day in below freezing temps and not expect it to be cold soaked when pulling over for the night. I think I’d sleep in a motel too! But I’m just supposing this is the OP’s situation.

I'm not suggesting the OP should sleep in the RV vs.a hotel.
THat is a personnel choice. However my 5'er will warm up to be livable in a about an hour from freezing temps.
Unless one is in bitter cold the RV will heat itself up enough to be habitable in an hour or 2.

In regards to the landfills, K-Cups are recyclable. All the ones I buy state that and tell you what to do. Peal the top off, dump the coffee, rinse, put with recyclables.

Now, do I do this? NOOOO!! When they make it easy to pull the top off I will, right now it is a PAIN.

I use a cheap no name K-Cup brewer, OK, it has a name, but nothing I have heard of before, that makes a single cup and pretty much sucks all the water out each time.


Unfortunately, being recyclable does not mean it will be recycled. Because of the drop in recycled material value, pretty much only cardboard, some paper, plastic bottles and aluminum drink containers are recycled these days. It’s not cost effective to sort the other items so everything else goes to the dump.

If you don’t believe it, check with your supposed recycler.

Even plastic bottles are a hard sell now. Steel and aluminum is the only thing with any real demand.

Still, a Keurig is not so large or heavy that it is difficult to carry into the motel room on arrival, and back out to the trailer on departure. I would suggest doing so in a bag or sack of some kind so the motel detective doesn't think you are stealing THEIR Keurig when departing.

I bet if you turned that sucker upside down the residual water would come out.

You would lose that bet. There are videos of how to fully drain a Keurig. It is not a simple process.

You're right, I just dismantled one to see the inner workings after it quit. Seemed like it was the pump that crapped out, but even turning it upside down and all other directions, about 1/2 cut of water remained inside.
