This has been discussed allot here over the years and everyone has a different comfort level, use area and equipment so allot of the answers differ depending on lot's of those factors. Up here in the high desert or the last 12 years, I try to go out year round, but once the winter freeze temps hit, I have to look for a place to water up once things drop below 32 degrees and all the outside water taps freeze up. I always carry bottled water and try to fill my water can before I head out and look for places to fill up the internal water tank. I have a hot water heater, a arctic blanket liner and a Wave 3 heater in my 05 Granby and I have had some of my water lines freeze, but usually I just leave a the cab. doors open, keep the hot water heater running, and maybe stuff some blankets in the spaces at night around my compression frig to keep the wind out and temps in the camper at a livable level and I usually have water for my morning coffee. I have never winterized my pop-up yet, and have been lucky, but again, I use it year round.
I've been out in the zero-10 zone a few times, but these days of geezerhood, I try not to make a habit of it . Don't cross country sky much or roll in the snow much either anymore, just walk and enjoy, so if things freeze up, I have my bottled water. My bigger problem is forgetting to drain my water system when I get home-but that is another story-just have to remember to park in the sun. Frozen/snow and ice on the roof are also more of a problem-can't go out if you can't pop the top !
Some of our folks here like the the Mark BC and the 3SkiPins like it cold and some our other people live in the real cold places and do allot of winter stuff and stay out longer than I do so they deal with the water problem different than me. Come to think about it Mark BC is probably right about now looking for some place up in the Steens to BBQ his Thanksgiving Turkey. Do a search here (if it works) and/or maybe someone here will book mark those older discussions for you.
