Arctic pack - will a heat pad damage an empty tank

Will it damage a tank if the artic pack system is turned on if one or more tanks are empty? Mike, new owner of Georgetown 378.

No. I asked the same question to FR when I was at the factory last week.

I don't think the artic pack heats up the water tank. Someone please correct me if I'm wrong, but I think the heating pads are on the gray and black tanks. On our coach the drinking water tank sits in a compartment with a heater vent.

It is our gray and black tanks that are empty at the moment. We have some left over water in the rest of the system. We will be winterizing it again in a few days. The timeframe becomes more urgent if there is a chance of damaging the grey and black water tanks. MGOBlue says that he talked with Forest River about this exact issue so that is good for me.

Pads turn off at 60 deg F, so no way they can cause a problem.

on my 378 it has heating pads on the fresh water/grey/black and also the elbows and to answer your question no it will not hurt anything if they are on and no water in the tanks.
