Winterizing takes less than an hour once you find all the valves and do it once or twice. How long would it take to replace just one frozen pipe?
If you use a small air compressor and one of the adaptors that you can get at Wally World to blow out the lines and just put antifreeze in the traps, you would be ready to go as soon as you hook the water back up. You're going to have to sterilize your fresh water tank anyway unless you enjoy trenchmouth.
It used to get down to freezing in Ft. Lauderdale when I lived there, I wouldn't take the chance.
