Hold Tank Heat

The 2013 Forester brochure says, “All Foresters feature heated/enclosed holding tanks and utility station. Your tanks stay warm with forced furnace heat and your dump area remains free from road debris.” I’m wondering about the “forced furnace heat”. Is that the living space propane furnace? And, if I chose to “waste” the propane and leave the furnace running at a low temp during winter storage, would I still need to winterize – blow out the lines, add antifreeze, etc?

The heated water compartment is for RV living in colder climates. I would NOT depend on the propane furnace for winter storage. You need to do a correct winterization.
