Mostly because as I travel for work wife is alone and want it simple for her. The spigot is ground level and doesn’t seem to be freezing issue. I am most worried about rv plumbing. Also I don’t want to have to worry about keeping tank full #lazy
Is there a reason that you don't fill the onboard tank and put the hose away? Do you protect the hydrant from freezing with a heat tape?
I had hooked up upon arriving and forgot the hose was connected, we don't normally get that cold, in the past I just disconnected and drained the hose nights. Predicted to be cold for a week or more so I bought the heated hose, just in case I forget again. We use lots of water with laundry every couple days, multi showers,cooking like being home. ( wife love cooking & has almost as much stuff in the 5W as home) Won't be home until mid March so I'll just keep the heat hose for the cold nights, that way I don't have to drain tanks when I move.
Most of the CG's I have been in have frost free or freeze free hose bibs. I had made a heated hose in the past, worked OK until it started to unassemble. Heat tape under foam insulation held with eclectic tape, ugly but it worked and took up a lot of space. Not having a store bought I thought I would ask those that have used them. Chasing the sun heading to AZ but it's been cold there too.

Getting ready for our first trip of 2020 and the first trip of any distance on the new (warranty) axles and springs on the 251RKS Spree. Started getting ready by cleaning off 1 1/2 feet of snow. Really looking forward to some not-white scenery. Last February was a lttle rough in Northern Utah. Hoping for better roads this year. GD
