Unless the campground hydrant is heated, leaving a water hose connected seems a bit silly to me. On many hydrants, when shut off the water drains back out of the riser and is empty so it can't freeze. Why not keep the hose in the compartment and every couple of days hook it up long enough to refill the water tank? In some CG I've been to, they forbid you to leave hose connected for this very reason.

I made my own 2 years ago before a -15F trip to Breckenridge, CO, no issues and have stayed many nights with single digit temps with no issues with hose freezing up.

Highly recommend topping off fresh water tank for emergency and IF the hydrant or supply isn't protect from freezing temperatures disconnect your hose from hydrant and drain hose and any fittings on hydrant.

Good luck!

Even with a heated hose the hydrant spigot needs protection with heat tape and insulation. Ask your cg staff what to do and whats allowed. They will know what temps cause problems and may have a policy. Where I'm at they shut the water off and tell u to disconnect if 25 degrees or lower for more then a few hours. But will turn it back on asap... keep your tank full.
