    I hope Iím not hosed...

    My reflection is under covered storage with 3 sides covered here in north Austin. I didnít get a chance to go drain my hot water heater and thereís about 3-5 gallons of treated water in my black tank.
    I guess Iíll find out in a couple of days when I go to pick up the camper for our next trip....

    Your black tank should be fine. The water heater maybe not. I also assume that you may still have water in your lines which may also give you some unwanted surprises. I hope not and wish you well with this.

    I have pretty low expectations at this point....
    I should have known better, but Iíve never experienced this kind of weather.
    Still not an excuse, just a hard lesson to learn. Iíll keep this updated- praying for a miracle!!!

    Iím reading this is such an unusual winter in your area. If you find issues get emí fixed and get back out camping!

    I always worry about the water pump cracking during a freeze if it still has water in it.

    Stupid question but why didn't you winterize it when you knew cold weather was coming? I always watch the weather in the fall and will winterize if cold weather is coming even if we'll be using the camper after.

    Simple- I didnít realize the severity of the weather and since I stopped watching main stream media months ago, I wasnít as informed as I should have been.
    Secondly- we rarely if ever have consistent below-freezing weather for longer than a couple of hours.
    Lastly, Iíve never winterized, so Ive never taken the time to learn. Ive owned my RV since July.
    Rest assured, my mistakes wonít happen again.
