Cold weather camping

I have a FR Cardinal 5 er and have only traveled in the southern states. In January, I am headed to Utah. What do I need to do to prevent my tanks from freezing?

Run the furnace when freezing temps are predicted. You should have vents in the underbelly that will provide heat to the tank area. Also, make sure you don't have a switch on your panel labeled "tank heater." Many modern 5ers have them now.
Maybe a cardinal owner will chime in. Could be more specific if you list year and model of yours.

Or you could ask for help in the Cardinal section here.
better to get help from those that own the same brand/model.
