Draining low point water in Freezing Weather

We live in our 2007 Flagstaff Classic Super Lite full time, 95% of the water lines are inside the TT, we heat with two Dr. Infrared heaters, no propane, our TT is total electric. My question is, should l drain low point drains when it is going to be below 32 degrees for an extended time, and leave all the faucets open? Even with the temperature at 70 plus degrees in the TT the water lines are covered or under cabinets, just don't want busted water lines. What do any of you other full timers do, or any advice do y'all have?

To give a little more information, we live in Central Alabama, it will get in the teens but only for a few days at a time, l know you can leave the water on and or drain the low point drains, but many of you have lived in or owned TT or MH for a long time and have good ideas and think out of the box, just looking for ideas or input.

Added two valves and pipe extensions with water hose to get water out from under TT, l have our TT skirted, so l can drain water lines in really cold weather.
