If you come to a forum, you can expect all sorts of answers. I saw nothing in the responses to your question that would appropriate a jerk response like this.

NEVER respond like this. Just report it and we'll handle it.

A couple of Pro Tips:
1. Don't cheap out and put water in your windshield washer tank. Spend the $2 and get a gallon of the blue doesn't freeze.
2. When you go on a forum asking for help, don't be an *******. You will catch more flies with honey than vinegar.

(for what it's worth - that "catch more flies" expression is not entirely true )

Yeah I had mine freeze at around -20 F. I drove the truck on a trip for 5 hrs hoping the engine heat would help thaw it out but it took a few days. It thawed out when the temps hit like 15 or so. I think ford should heat them. The windshield washer fluid fluid that froze was a winter formula rated to -25 F. I'm sure people in the extreme climates make their own blends with a lot more alcohol.
I was happy that when it did thaw the system worked perfectly. I heard stories of lines cracking ... etc

Just an FYI to the OP and everyone else who posts about cold temperatures and windchill values...

Windchill has no effect on anything but your own skin and body! Thats all!

The temperature of any and every single part of your truck will NOT be changed or effected by windchill.

So...if its -30 outside and the windchill is -45, the temperature of every single thing on your truck will not be any colder than -30.

And...I've lived in the cold great white north all of my life...**** we hit -42 here a few weeks ago and my windshield washer has never frozen. I use appropriate washer fluid for my region and temperatures.

I use Splash Ultimate, good to -35. Can't recall if I got it at Fleet Farm or Menards. It keeps the F150 system running but not so much in my son's Cobalt.
