I bought these 12v tank heater pads and two heat pads to go next to the drain valves.

I bought a 4x8' sheet of, look like plastic cardboard and a roll of
Reflectix that I will cover and help insulate the tanks.

I got the pads installed and got them wired enough that if I need them I can just plug them in.

I still need to make the cover and wire the heating pads to a switch.

They have built in temperature sensor to turn them on and off.

…. Good idea for the cold weather country… I ordered our AF865 with them & they came with 12V & 110V heating pads…. Have yet to worry about using them ( 10*F is coldest we have seen in 2 1/2 years ) but they are ready …

I wish my camper had been ordered with the winter package but the original owner didn't pick that option.

I've been working out of town and staying in my camper rather than staying in a motel, I loath motels.

Not sure how often they'll get used but I figure better to be safe than sorry. [emoticon]

Thank you. I will try to get the cover finished up in the next day or two and post more pictures.
