Wintering ice maker. While living in bus

Hey everyone, happy camping.
This is my first winter of staying in RV thru the winter.
I have a dometec fridge with an ice maker. Weather guy says it's going to get cold here in Washington for a few days. I'm worried about ice maker lines outside. I don't need to make ice right now. How do I unplug ice maker while still needing water inside?

How cold is it supposed to be, and why the concern with this particular line and not others or the wet bay?

I have an 02 Dolphin and I put a heating pad on a mechanical timer. 30 min on 60 min off. Fits perfect behind exterior access panel. I'm in foothills N of Seattle. Temp supposed to be in upper teens tonight

The water line on my Norcold 1200 had a 12V heater wrapped around it all the way from the ice maker to the water supply. The water supply line was wrapped in foam insulation. I think that's pretty standard for RVs.
