Water in winter

My Roadtrek has an under-galley-sink filtered cold and instant hot water system (110v electric by Insinkerator). As I prepare to winterize for the first time, it occurs to me that the filtered hot/cold system can be isolated and modified with a small pump and under-sink water reservoir to provide some running water during winter travel. All the pipes are interior and could easily be kept from freezing while traveling and camping. Water down the drain would need to have an antifreeze chaser into the grey tank, but that seems pretty easy. There is an unused under-sink receptacle too, which could power the pump.

So, seems pretty straight forward. Am I missing something? Do any of you have any experience with this, or heard of someone who has done this?

Sounds feasible to me! Only thing I can add is I'd check the cost of everything, pump, reservoir, antifreeze, etc, and weigh that against the cost of bottled water. Let us know if you do it how it works out.
