Also, using pool noodles to insulate is a good idea, and I plan on it.

My last 5th wheel the low point drains had a valve up inside the trailer. I never used them but they channeled cold air up to the lines so if the line froze while winter camping I knew exactly where the problem was. Solved the problem by opening up the area so interior heat could get to them.

My ‘15 5th wheel has two lines hanging down with caps on them. I don’t use them and so far... down to 14 degrees F have not been a problem. I’ve forgotten they are there until reading your post.

An interesting video on freeze damage / no damage with different types of pipe.
