Electric Pipe Cable - Any Use on TT?

Anyone ever use the Electric Pipe cable on pipes on Travel Trailer. Just looking for a quick/temporary fix. Was thinking of using Electric Pipe Cable.

If that is the Electric Heat Cable, then, yes some folks use it to keep the city water supply from freezing. I don't recall anyone mentioning any other use for it.

What do you need to fix quickly?

Nothing to fix yet, just going to be in some weather with Highs during day of Mid 40's to Lows of mid 20's in night to early morning. Was just going to wrap around some of the exposed water lines to prevent freezing and breaking.

Should do the job, I would also insulate the hose and get it off the ground.

This is not the actual hose that connects to city water connection. This would be the pipes underneath the camper that run from the Fresh Water tanks, etc..

Either way. I would wrap with heat tape AND insulate. The stuff is cheap enough

Always read the directions and make sure you get the proper type of heat tape. Follow directions, not all can be insulated either, or even lapped over itself.
