Try pipe insulation and then the heat tape. I saw that a lot in during a cold Feb in Florida

It's chilly here on the beach during Jan. But it sure beats Michigan in Jan.

If I'm worried about the water hose freezing I just fill up the fresh water tank

The first thing you'll run into is that many campgrounds will close for the winter around November 15. If you want "Warm" you need to go farther south than North Carolina.

these first two pics were taken camping in Mebane, NC about 30 minutes west of Durham, this past January. It was cold but the sabre held up well.

This was taken this past February also in Mebane. As you can see we do get winter weather here.

I camp in every month of the year, cold doesn't stop me. When it's cold I have the campground all to myself

Some close but many in NC stay open year round like Mayberry is open year round.... But the weather can be very hit or miss......

Get a heated hose from camco or there is a manufacturer that makes one that's even heavier duty( nofreezewaterhose). Stay away from the K&H hose, it's only for single use not constant sitting ( like overnight) it is only heated at the end with the cord and they say to disconnect after each use.
