RE: How cold is too cold?

My Class B has the same setup with the fresh water tank and pump under the bed. So it is inside, but because the space is sealed from the heater outlets it does not get direct heat. That did cause a problem when it was 8 degrees and the lines from the pump to the tank froze. I lifted the bed to allow air in and put a few chemical hand warmers on the affected areas. It was good after a few hours as the day warmed a bit. But it is not a problem with the temps you expect.Good place for a small pipe heater.

RE: Adding tank heaters for winter use.

Here's the answer to my own question above: https://www.ultraheat.com/ultraheat-rv-tank-heaters As you see from the 12V tank heater specifications, their current draw is way low at 4.1amps to 11.8amps. As such, 12V tank heaters should be "no problem" for emergency use in drycamping, since due to their cycling On and OFF, total amp hour draw-down of RV batteries is not too bad at all.

RE: Adding tank heaters for winter use.

I purchased mine at ultraheat.com The 12v heaters pull a lot of amps so I primarily bought 120v heaters for the black and two grey tanks. The fresh water I went with a combo 120v/12v for extra heat if needed and to have some heat while in transit. My waste pipes I wrapped with self regulating heat tape made for regular home use. Overrapped with some foam tape designed to insulate. This all worked fine. I did have an issue with a fresh water pipe freezing in an inaccessible area when temps dipped to -10F and maybe a little more. I added a circulating hot water system to eliminate this issue. Has all worked great for many years. Although have not been down that low since. Just got lucky that time. Mine is a fair weather trailer with exposed tanks. Not much insulation but at least I had access to get the pads on easy.
