Default How to keep both Fresh Water & Black Tank From Freezing

what are the best ways to keep the black, grey and fresh water tanks and lines from freezing when Motorhome is stationary for winter and will be used in place.

Thank you very much.

I'd suggest straw bales rather than hay bales around the coach if its not parked in a climate controlled building . Mice and such don't like straw as much as they would hay. And I suspect straw bales to be cheaper.

Used to use straw bales, then was informed about filling 55 gal trash bags with leaves. It kills two birds with one stone, clean yard and motorhome cover for the bottom of coach.
