I have a class C Motorhome.  I have always camped before and I love my RV.  But...I always winterized every winter and brought it out for the summer.  Now I am moving to Alaska from Texas the end of the month.  My wife is begging me to get the water going.  She does not want to use any restroom other that the one she is accustomed to.  This is probally a stupid question but as you now I will be going through some very cold/harsh environments.  Is it possible to fill up the water tank without damaging the pipes or bursting due to the cold weather.

The end of March!  Even then, you are going in a period which in northern interior can be damned cold with iffy road conditions.  The record high for Fairbanks in March was 34?F set on Mar. 21, 1998.  (per the National Weather Service site).  Freezing pipes will be the least of your problems.  Road conditions can be horrendous --- especially just after the thaw.

We have some Alaskan ex-residents here, hopefully they will chime in at this point.
