I don't understand...
You're living in your unit ? or it is in storage in a sealed metal building ?
If in storage, why not just winterize and blow the lines way cheaper and worry free.

Shut off your water pump and open all your faucets. That way, freezing pipes will not burst as easily. Additionally, 28 degrees isn't so cold as to freeze the tanks unless it is sustained for a long time.

I had a pickup slid-in camper with PEX plumbing freeze in sub-zero weather and nothing broke. As bigben says, that type of tubing is more forgiving.

If your really concerned and can't supply some other heat, consider winterizing your rig.

Turn your article pac on for sure which should heat your underbelly water connections just fine.....I just went through 22 degree weather with electric water heater on and make sure you unplug from the city water supply and let the hose drain as that will freeze and expand as well.
