how much water line is exposed on a 19

How much water line is exposed on a 19. Is there any hot water lines outside on a 19?

I asked ETI to send me some pictures of under the trailer.
The first picture i believe is a 21 and has lots of exposed water lines both hot and cold. The second is of a 19' and I cant tell where lines are and if its just one.
It seems odd that they would expose these lines.

I asked if my water tank could be put inside to avoid this and they will no longer do that.
I like to be able to get threw a cold night without freezing pipes. I rather not have the cost and inconvenience of the spray foam . I also notice there is a external trap on the grey tank I would think this would freeze. usually I just drain the grey down in cold weather and haven't had a problem it might freeze over night but there is room to expand,but a exposed trap might bust. hmm

If i get the foam will all these components be covered?

I believe all your supply lines in the 19 are enclosed inside and go from the driver side to the passenger side under the bed. On the 21 that can not be achieved, thus the under carriage lines.The spray foam will encapsulate all of what you see. With the 19 keeping your heat on should protect the supply lines. The gray p trap you see is under the shower, if you pour some antifreeze down there you should be fine, with or without the foam.

The picture of the 19 is almost useless, can't make out much of anything.

I'd expect you have the output of the fresh going up to the pump, and maybe a pair of lines from the drivers side to the passengers side for the kitchen sink. I know my 5.0TA does. If they are the same on the 19 you won't be able to see them in that picture. Here's where they are on mine.

Here is a picture of a late model 19 water system. The fresh water tank is directly below so the exposed clear input tube is very short. Once to the pump every fresh water pipe is inside the trailer.

Thank You
That is very helpful . Is that in show room?

Looks like a short run , I can probably come up with something to keep that intake line from freezing I like the fact that on the 19 there is no hot water lines underneath. (knowing hot water will freeze faster than cold.

I assuming that they do not cross from kitchen to bath under like the 5.0ta in the picture

Yes I took this and the last picture in the show room...and many others of the 19. The first picture is located somewhere in this forum and credit goes to that person.
I will send any picture that a person may request of a 19 without them having to open a thread...just email me what you want? This will be from my photo file as my 19 does not come until April...best I can do for now.
As mentioned before the pipes run to the kitchen area under the bed.

Correct for the 19.

From Ed's original picture you can see the hot and cold running towards the front of the trailer (see arrow). These go over the wheel wells under the fridge area and split off for the outside shower (if applicable) and the bathroom sink. A branch of the cold line continues low behind the bathroom mold to feed the toilet. All of it stays inside the trailer.
