How to stop water filter from freezing

Ok it's kind of a dumb Q, but...

We are hitting Zion for Thxgiving n the low might go into the mid 20s. ThxGiving last year in Yosemite my fresh water hose n camco tube filter froze.
Could disconnect all water I guess
I'm going to buy a heated hose this trip. I could also just disconnect filter off water hose at dusk n bring it in till AM. Just wondered if anyone knows a solution I'm not thinking of (foam insulation/heated tape etc???)
I'm not interested in the faucet drip method as we've no sewer hookup at site

I've prob answered my own Q but thought I'd ask.

When it is going to be below freezing I just make sure my fresh water tank is full and unhook everything outside and use my internal water. My filter is inside all the time so all I have to bring in is my pressure regulator. I always leave the hose outside slightly low on one end so it drains. That way I can hook back up to refill the tank when necessary even when it is below freezing. I can't see the expense of a heated fresh water hose when the faucet is going to freeze if it is cold enough. Not worth the headache. That is why we have fresh water tanks. IMHO
