Hi, We are planning renting an RV in March the rental companies are winterizing their RV's until April for a a number of destinations.

Winterization means no water can be used in the RV. ie "This will include the water pipes, toilet, fresh water tanks, sink, shower, external shower, hot water heater and holding tanks. Winterization requires that water be drained from the fresh water tank, hot water heater and both waste tanks.

Once the vehicle is winterized, no water can be put into the fresh water tank and it cannot be hooked up to the city water supply anymore. Therefore, no water at all is available in the motor home"

What is the minimum temperature it is safe to take an "un-winterized" RV? We are mainly concerned about water pipes bursting or damaging the hot water service as we do not want to have to deal with the hassle and pay additional fees to fix them.

With a family of 5 our view is if the RV is winterized then it almost defeats the purpose of renting one if we cannot even wash dishes in the RV. Or have we got this wrong?
