As long as the camper is warm when you leave, and drive for less than six hours or so, the temp inside should not drop low enough to freeze the pipes. The water will retain heat for quite a while. When you set up for the night make sure its "toasty" for the ride to the next campground in the morning. I also open the cabinets to make sure the warm air in the camper has access to the cabinet spaces.
Make sure you have heat tape for your water hose at the campground or fill your fresh tank with enough water for your stay then put up the hose.
I don't bother dumping in freezing weather (putting the hose out) until the tanks are full. The heat pads will keep the waste water warm in camp and will stay warm while traveling for the day.
If your just shutting down at night and camping, I do like herk said. But the 31ts dose not have heating pads for the tanks. It uses the furnace to help keep the belly warm. Over the Thanksgiving we yard camp at the kids house @10-20F nights. With the thermostat at 60F, I would get some freezing, had to keep the thermostat at 68 or higher. So with the 31TS in freezing weather you have to cycle the furnace, even if you use electric heater to keep that belly from freezing.
The first thing to freeze is you fresh water supply from your tank to your pump.
