Our water froze last...

Our water froze last night. How do we prevent that from happening again today. BTW, we have a 17 Vista LX 35F

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your LX yourself? What have you tried so far?

Yes. We are thinking that if we just put a heater/light in the back left compartment, that might solve the problem

Mechanic's Assistant: Just to clarify, what are the exact lights you're talking about?

For example a 100 w lightbulb in a stand-alone socket

Mechanic's Assistant: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?

Not that I can think of....
