heated hose question

I am looking at buying a heated hose so I can leave the water supply hooked up while in freezing temps. If my hose is heated and water supply faucet is underground should I be okay? Or can things still freeze inside the trailer and crack? Never dealt with winter rving at the deer lease.

That depends on the depth and duration of the freeze...
Will you have the propane furnace running and electricity ?
otherwise I would winterize to be sure... (and if your temps are like ours this morning, 23 in DFW!, you are probably asking that question too late )

We have the heated hose too, and a "four season" package, but ours did freeze last year. The water lines and all can 'give' a bit, but the fixtures and water manifolds usually do not have any expansion space and that's where you will run into issues...
