What kind of rig do you have? If you have enclosed tanks, I would recommend putting some water in your fresh tank and running from it. The temps here (Martinsburg, WV) are going to be bone-chilling...

I would imagine if the KOA is open they have water available. Perhaps not at each campsite, but at the office, bathrooms, a frost proof hydrant, etc.

A quick question to the KOA you are proposing to stay at about the water will answer your question.

Many locations have self draining taps that let them leave the water on year round. We have stayed at a couple state parks where they request that you leave the hose connection at the tap or the trailer leak so the water keeps running to avoid freezing.

It may be worthwhile to take a couple 5 gallon containers filled with water to use for drinking, washing and flushing until the temps get warm. Nothing worse than trying to unhook and coil a hose that is stiff from the cold. It always seems no matter what you do the hose will whip around and give you a spash.

Throw a gallon of pink into the toilet and the kitchen sink so there is antifreeze in the tanks to protect the valves.
