Lived in my fiver in St Louis one winter. Bought an heat tape hose well insulated and unit had heated tanks plus insulated floor. Made it ok except for the time i let the water run at a trickle while gone for the weekend. Sewer pipe froze solid. The old saying running can't. Freeze is BS. Most full timers there put either hay bales or some type of curtain of foam board around the outside to keep the wind from blowing underneath the tt. Good luck

I live in this 34FK full time, and have for 3 years. Like most of the other respondants, I will agree you won't have a chance.
The walls in a Work and Play are 3/4" plywood with a gel coat on the outside and a thin layer of fibreglass material on the inside, then the paneling. Total R value is R-1. The ceiling has 4" of fibreglass batts, good for maybe R-6. The walls will form ice if the temp outside is below 25 deg. No real chance of keeping the plumbing from freezing no matter how many mods you make. Plain and simple these are a 3 season trailer.
I was in Witchita until mid December one year, and it was not pleasant. I stay in areas(Gulf Shores Al or Houston area in the winter, any farther north just wouldn't cut it.

Heated hose and dehumidifier

We were in Quartzite AZ last Jan and Feb, and using space heaters, heated hose, etc....but lots of condensation on windows and walls, which using the eva-dry small dehumidifier helped alot
