If the tank is insulated and you keep the furnace on it shouldn't, but it depends on the brand and model of the trailer that you have? Since I don't know what kind of RV you have it's hard to correctly answer.

I have a 2002 Nuwa Hitchhiker Champagne Model 35 ft. We have heard that if we keep a full tank of water in our holding tank, that it would not freeze, as opposed to hooking up to the campground water in the winter time. We were just wondering if that was true. Thank you for any information you may be able to provide.

I quess the only ones that can answer this question are those that are full timers in a cold part of the US with freezing temperatures. I don't know if there is a Hitchhiker's owners site but they or even the factory should be able to get the answer for your model.
It was always my impression you would make out fine in a 4 season trailer as long as you kept the furnace on and even a small heater in the storage compartment in bitter cold. The
water hose would have to brought in as you already mentioned and even the black water hose since the grey water could freeze.

It sounds like the Stor-Dry is the way to go. If you and the others who live in wet climates find that it works well, it should work for me. I'll check it out at one of my local rv dealers. Thanks for the advice.
