Winter Camping in a 5th wheel

We have a Rockwood Signature Ultra light, 8289 model.
Has the heat strips for the tanks, supposed to be insulated underside etc..

We may be living full time in the trailer for awhile this winter.
We are in MO, so temps are not in the crazy cold range, but cold enough to freeze all the lines.

Looking for advice/experiences for winter camping.
Keep your water line from freezing from the tap to the trailer?
Sewer hose valves freezing?

Stuff like that.
Any advice will be greatly appreciated.

We have friends who camp host through the winter north of KC MO...I just had asked them what they do about those things. They fill their water tank and use pumps for real long cold times. Disconnecting hose to keep from freezing. Never had a problem with valves freezing on their heated tanks........on a different note I have seen heated water hoses that are pretty pricey but you would not have to disconnect....The 1 I priced was 15 foot long @ 99.95....hope these few thoughts help
