Many nights below freezing and some folks had their water freeze up, didn't leave it dripping.  Last season was colder in Sept, early Oct, and we actually hit -4.  Even my dripping didn't keep that from freezing, but a little heat solved it quickly. 

One trick, put a Y fitting inside, feed the water in on one side, and put short hose with a small running drip out of the coach on the other side.  Works real well.  Close your windshield curtains, drop the rest of the curtains, helps minimize convection cooling. 

I am thinking of some sort of skirting for the winter, but need it so I van pop it off if we decide to head out for a couple days. 

Back in my truck camping days we camped in northern climates right into Dec.

When I was in Montana, I went and bought some 2 inch thick blue styrofoam sheets. Cut it to fit snug and jammed it tight under the coach. Got a small electric heater- no more frozen holding tanks. Now the hoses are another story~
