Hi!

If it's only for a couple of nights the hardware store or plumbing supply places have a 1/2" to garden hose adapter. Unscrew your outdoor shower head (1/2") screw on the adapter and then to your white fresh water hose and turn on the hot water. A couple of tanks of hot water should see you through a couple of nights.

If you look it says that it's for rigid pipe only and never to use it on hose.

If your on a full hook up site, open your gray tank and let the water in the bathroom trickle. I'm on a perm site in northern Wisconsin and this time if year that's what I do to keep the hose from freezing.

You are correct running water want freeze. If you notice car washes are set to let water trickle from the hoses in freezing temperatures.

Don't know where you saw this. The most I saw on the Lowe's site was "Cable must be installed straight on pipe." This really means, "don't wrap it around itself." I never saw the words "rigid" or "hose."

Here's the manufacturers brochure, also doesn't say "not on hose." Just says OK on plastic or metal pipe.
