On my trips south during January and February, I have seen the heat tape wrapped around so many hoses its not funny. I just fill up the fresh water tank when I pull in and disconnect the hose. I connect it again only when I need water. The spigots usually have an insulated bonnet over them that gets removed when you need to hook up the water hose; then replaced after.
The sewer hose (if used) gets connected only when ready to dump; then put away.
