Tucson Hard Freeze tomorrow night

What do I need to do about this? I am parked for the winter in Tucson and living in my Majestic (2017). Do I unhook and store poop hose (RhinoFlex)? Do I unhook water hose and fill up fresh water tank to 50%? Do I just use the furnace to heat basement and living areas? Is there a switch for tank heat or is furnace heat all I need? Is there tank heat pad at all?

Also I am leaving for a week over holidays. I figured Iíd leave it plugged into electric and have propane tanks full and set thermostat at 55, just in case thereís another hard freeze while Iím gone. Is that right?

TIA for help.

I wouldn't worry about the stinky slinky, but fill the water tank full and store the hose inside or drain it.

I would close both gray and black tank valves, use gas heat, and fill fresh water tank and turn off water disconnect and drain city water hose.
