2-combo single pole lightswitch problems

I have a '71 mobile home (aluminum wiring) that has a 2-combo single pole (on-off) switch in the bathroom.

What water lines get heat tape?

This is my first Iowa winter in a mobile home and I am little confused. Underneath my trailer there is a line that has existing heat tape that runs from a hole in the ground to my water heater (the pipe is blue plastic esque). These one will need to be re-heat taped.

Finding a Water Valve for a House Bib?

I moved into a 1971 Superior Homes trailer just over a month ago. I have a house bib installed that had been turned off for the winter (I am in MN). I tried to find the valve to turn it on, but to no avail. I pulled up skirting to check right where the spigot is first, but the piping goes up into th...
