Default Freezing Temps in 2001 Rialta

I am in NM and there's a little cold snap. Last night it wasn't supposed to go below 40 and I woke up to 36. Tonight it's not supposed to go below 36...
The RV is 2 weeks new to me and I'm unsure if I should drain everything and put in the RV antifreeze, just drain all the water or what.
I'm headed to Texas/NOLA/Fla in 2 days and will be back in the 80s during the day for the next month or so.
Any thoughts?

This reply may be late in the game but here it is. All of the fresh water plumbing is basically inside the unit. The holding tanks are exposed. Most important would be to either turn the campground water spigot off (if hooked up) or even unscrew the hose to the rig. Providing you run some heat (if afraid of the propane heat overnight) a small space heater perhaps? Keeping the rig into the 50's at least should keep everything fine including yourself. Always keep the roof vent ever so slightly cracked open to allow for carbon dioxide (and monoxide) to escape. Be sure your LP Detector is operating if you are running the heater. I have let my heater cycle on and off overnight to keep it warm but am leery of doing that. Some of the simple and new space heaters placed at the driver's end are quiet and you don't have that "what if" risk. Compared to many RV's the Rialta seems very well insulated and stays decently warm.
