Cold weather camping

We are leaving for an extended trip to the Yukon in about a week with our 2017 5TA. We have extra insulation, 12 V tank heaters, and I have added pipe wrap to the short piece of plumbing in the outside access to the power jacks. We are expecting night time temperatures of -7C (19.4 F) while the days look pretty good at 15 C.

I have no worries about the comfort in the trailer as I just replaced the sail switch for the furnace, but wonder if anyone has had any issues with that short little elbow fitting connecting to the toilet at those night time temps.

I've had no issues but I drain the water if I get into freezing temps that last longer then an overnight.
Happy Motoring
