One More Trip Prior To Winterizing-Need Advice

I've got a 2006 SV264 Surveyor and I'm heading to Helen, Ga. next week for my last trip prior to winterizing. The weather forecast is calling for highs in upper 40's and lows in low 30's. Currently I have the TT parked in my driveway (in S.E. Tn) with the water drained and a small space heater inside camper to protect it from a couple of cold snaps we've had recently. I don't feel the need to spend a $100 on a heated hose and was planning on running a small stream of water during the night on each of my faucets and maybe cracking the vents slightly to help reduce interior condensation. Are these viable ideas and should I be taking any other precautions? Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

You could unhook your water hose at night. Then in the morning turn the water on and blow the ice out of it before hooking it back up. I've done this a few times when it is just below freezing.
