I posted this on another thread too, but I'm not sure if the artic pack addresses the fresh water tanks, or just the holding tanks and waste lines. In our coach, the fresh water tank is in an insulated, heated compartment so placing artic pack heaters on it would be redundant. I've seen the heating pads on the holding tanks, and also on the elbow fittings of the waste lines.

Whew...all this talk of artic packs and freezing temps before Christmas. Makes me want to heath south. Again!

The document posted by Iggy clearly describes installation on "exposed" fresh water tanks so, I would presume the Georgetown fresh water tanks are protected. Note that it does say there must be liquid in the tanks. Kinda self explanatory but a caution nonetheless.

Just a thought....is there water in the inlet tube to the fresh water tank after draining for winter? If so, is there danger of freezing? I don't think I have ever addressed that question when I winterize...

Gravity should remove any water still in the fresh water fill line, but to be sure a simple puff of 20psi from an air compressor would remove any doubt
