To be safe you could disconnect the hose from campground spigot and let the water drain out so it doesn't freeze. Spigot might still freeze though so just let it drip, drip, drip slowly. Or you could let an interior cold water faucet drip slowly.

If the days are above say 40, and it gets to 25 at night, you dont have much to worry about. I brought my 38' fiver home three weeks ago and temps have dipped into the teens, even a couple nights at 15 while camping. The only thing i did was stow hoses in the basement. While camping i keep the heat set at at least 65, and 50 when just in the driveway. Been much colder than i wanted or i would've winterized after getting it home.

If you have an ice maker and no arctic pack you will have to do something to protect the valve. I know about this because I came north in mid Aprillast year and it dropped to below freezing for a few nights. The valves that supply the water to the water dispenser and ice maker sit right next to the outside cover on the back of the fridge. I had to have the valves replaced.
