Need help broken city water inlet

Good day, aand i hope everyone had a better christmas than myself. -35 celsius the whole weekend, rv park breaker pops and all water lines are frozen. 3 days later of running a heater under my trailer the lines finaily thaw, hooked up main water and discovered that the city water line in must have split from being frozen. This is an 2001 excella 35. What do i need to do to access where the city water comes in so i can find the split pipe.
I will thank everyone now for there suggestions.

I don't know what your city water inlet looks like, but if it's screwed in from the outside, I'd unscrew it and see how much I could pull it out from the trailer wall.

I'd also determine inside the trailer the location of the city water inlet and see if there are any access panels or removable interior panels that permit access.

Petarm,

Can you post a pic showing the area you need access to?

Thanks for the comments, i noticed that the side panel were the black flush hose goes comes off, and i unscrewed the city water inlet and found the o-ring was damaged causing my leak, sure dont give alot of room or pex line to work with. Did a quick repair for now. Also the regulator was broken so i purchased a temporary one till it gets warm enough to repair properly, still looking to see were the line goes once it enters the inside of the trailer. I am guessing somewhere near where the hot water tank is in the bathroom or under the left side bed. I have 2 twins at the rear of this trailer. Thanks for the comments

They should be installed with flex hose instead of PEX according to the instructions. Mine is installed with PEX.

Once it gets a little warmer i think i will make some modifications and use something mor flexable. Still trying to find some access from the inside of my trailer but they sure built this not to come apart.
