Fridge and freezing weather/water lines

My '09 Camelot 42FKQ has a fridge with water dispenser and ice maker. The lines that supply water to both are 1/4" translucent plastic, and there are several solenoids in the line as well. All these lines are running in the area that is accessible from the outside, behind a vented panel.

So if I'm parked in freezing weather, what prevents these lines from freezing up? I'm not talking storage, we're full timers so are always in the coach. We try to spend most of our time in warmer weather but that doesn't always work...

The water lines on the back of the fridge have a heat tape that will keep them warm while the fridge is running on ac power. Even running on propane, it will be warm enough in that compartmrnt to prevent freezing. There is also a shut-off valve in the coach to stop water from going to the fridge. Not sure where yours is located, but mine is under the sink.
