Another newbie question-dewinterization

We have a trip planned to mountains for Memorial weekend and I'm trying to decide if it would be safe to go ahead and dewinterize beforehand. We'll be at around 9'000 ft elevation so there's a chance it could get near or below freezing depending on the weather that week. So here's the stupid newbie question(s): if it were to dip that low, if we're running the heater at night would the ambient heat from the camper be enough to protect the pipes? Can you leave a slow drip from the faucet at night like you do sometimes at a normal house to help? Or, is it just best to leave it winterized if there's any chance at taking it into freezing temps...

It really depends on the unit you have and where the pump and lines are. If you can leave some cabinets open to your pump and lines you should be fine. If your water lines are outside the unit like the fresh water tank to the pump that might be a problem if it is too cold for too long.
