Heated tank pads

Silly question, how to you turn the pads on to heat the black, grey and fresh water tanks in the underbelly?

We have a 2014 400BH. I don't recall seeing a switch for tank heaters where the slide, tank indicators, water pump and water heater switches are located. But that would be the logical place.

On ours, there's a domestic-style light switch on a panel below the kitchen counter with a label "ARTIC PACK". To a Brit, an "artic" is a tractor-trailer rig (short for "articulated lorry"), but I believe it should read "ARCTIC". It turns on the tank heaters.

They're only on the grey and black tanks, on the assumption by the designer that the potable tank is inside the living space. The built in thermostat keeps the heaters on until the tank contents are above 60 F. I can't see using electrical power to heat the sewage to that temp.

I've never used the system.
