Thanks. It is somewhat refreshing to see people having success with them. We have heater for the tank, I just prefer not to fill it up.

I put a heat tape around the hose and faucet then foam rubber installation tubes around the hose and faucet. Survived 19 degrees no problems.

STONE MOUNTAIN! Wow! Could have "warned" you. SilverbackMel lives right in Buford area, 30 minutes away. We get these spells each and every winter. We have a beautiful spot in Dahlonega for our rv, but rarely go up there in winter sans normal checks 2 or 3 times.
Leaving in 10 days for south Florida. Return in April. Would already have been down there but waited a month too late 6 months ago when booking a place.
You need to consider below Disney to reach a FAIR CHANCE to avoid a freeze.❄️

I am in Cumming,GA- just north of Stone Mtn, I use a regular RV hose, heat tape, wrap that with pipe insulation and tape it with duct tape. Leave enough of the heat tape out to hang out of the inlet compartment and enough heat tape in the water faucet to keep it warm and put a styrofoam cooler over the water faucet. No problem and on my 2nd year with the hose and heat tape.
