Suggestions for Winter Insulation when below freezing

Hello, I'm new to the forum and am full-timing in my 2011 Jayco Eagle 322FKS. I wanted to start preparing my trailer for cooler weather and possibility of below freezing weather. I've seen some trailers that have some kind of insulation wrapped around the water lines. What's the proper terminology of this so I can pick some up.

Also, what other things do I need to do to prepare for and avoid my lines freezing when it get below freezing. My trailer is not a "polar" insulated and not exactly sure how much freezing cold it can take!

If I need to buy a skirt, I will. Does it really work for the money spent.

Thanks for any suggestions.

Hey DMR - welcome to the forum! Glad you found us. I will let some of our snowbirds give some better advice than I can give, but just wanted to say hi!

It really depends on where you plan on spending the winter.

What you probably saw on some trailers is a heat tape with insulation and plastic wrap. That is available in most hardware strores. If you are in a really cold area you may need to skirt it with plywood and foam insulation. Some even keep an electric heater under the trailer with the skirt.

2018 Surveyor 265RLDS well equipped.
