hose insulation

I live in my rv and I'm new at this but...old at common sense. I know there are others in ever colder temps who may can share tips to help prevent the water line from the park to the rv from freezing. I use two white rv water hoses to connect and have pipe insulation on just doesn't seem to be very good stuff. I started by running water at a trickle, but since found out the park doesn't allow that. I have turned the water off and disconnected from the rv, but I hate to handle the fittings in weather when they become so brittle. I've been disconnecting both ends and bleeding the hose and is the best I can do to have water early. thanks for any info, tips, to help make water flow smoothly.
