As Joshua has stated;
I also have just purchased a Forest River, Forester 2301. Mostly the same as Sunseeker 2300. Got what I thought a good buy on a very low mileage 2014. Was also concerned that it did not have the artic package but it did have other options that were liked by me so the trigger was pulled and purchased.
A recent trip with my wife for a week has put the artic package option desire to a rest. Using one of the remote temperature reading units that can be bought at Walmarts for $10-$20 the results show that the enclosed and heated basement compartments work extremely well. At no time did the compartment vary any more than 5-10 degrees lower from the inside temperature of the coach. So running the heater to keep the coach warm will take care of the tanks and drains automatically. For my use the battery operated heat pads are not that high a priority anymore.
But my question to Joshua is what about the hot water pipes low point drain which is below the coach? Why was there not put a shut off valve in the same area as the fresh water drain that is heated? Seems like this one red low point drain that has a cap to act as a shut off valve, being under the coach could freeze. Should this be corrected?
