I'll ask you a couple questions to help you understand and answer your own question. First Have you ever make Ice cubes in the freezer? If so how long did it take for them to freeze. Typical home freezer is around 0°F.
Is any of your plumbing exposed to the sky? If not they wont get that cold.
How cold does the inside of your trailer get at night? Typically the inside of a tent or trailer will be about 10° warmer than outside without running the furnace
I've had my Scamp
in 5° two days and in the teens for another 2. For a 5 days it never got above freezing. The only problem was I ran out of battery
and had to use my extra battery
Now for the short answer. Not to worry.
ADDENDUM... One place I stayed it was quite cold down into the single digits. We had connected a hose to the trailer and that froze. after two days.
