dumb move

i am new at this and did a stupid thing and need some help. I took my 2011 29 bhbs wildwood trailer deer hunting in freezing weather. I had a heated water line into the trailer and the furnace running and planned to let the water run to keep it from freezing. In the middle of the night I noticed the water had stopped running. I suspect that it froze at the inlet but cannot tell. It is a warm 80 degrees inside the trailer and still will not open up. How can I unfreeze the line. I do not see the inlet from under the trailer and the lines into the bathroom and kitchen all seem fine. The trailer sits permently at my hunting site and towing it back to the dealer is not an option. Any suggestions? Thanks

Also is there a way I can put electrical tape around the water lines to utilize in the winter without worrying about the lines freezing?

Wow....sorry to hear. Need more info such as; 1-What is your water source? 2-Is your underbelly enclosed? 3-Did you leave cabinet doors open to let heat into those spaces where any plumbing runs through?

If you have a water spigot coming out of the ground, did it freeze?

Find the cabinet or access panel inside in the area where your hose connection is connected outside. If it froze there, then removing the panel may allow it to thaw (a hair drier in this case would help speed up the process).
