Arctic Pack

Anybody retrofit an Arctic Pack into a 3010DS? I have a 2014.

Do you need it?

Arctic pack only heats the black and gray tanks using 12V power (inefficient in my mind). Your 2014 would have "furnace air" heated tanks, water pump and water filter. As long as the furnace is running you are dumping some warm are in the compartment. With the arctic pack, all you heat is the black and gray tanks. (not the valves, water pump or filter)

Coach Net probably assumes it's just like every other class C, which we are not.

The outside kitchen gray valve is not heated, but then it's not used all that often.

Look In the passenger side compartment just behind the tires. Should have a black ABS cover. Open that you will see water filter, water pump. Tucked away in that area is a silver duct run. 2" in diameter. That feeds from the furnace.

We ordered our 2011 Sunseeker 3100 with the Arctic Pak expecting to need it while driving in freezing weather. That has never happened, but we've been camping overnight in a fully exposed location in 19 degrees F with a 20 mph wind. We had the LP furnace running to keep the coach warm. The next morning I checked the compartment with the water pump and filter that bclemens mentioned, and the dump valve compartment. Both were about 50 degrees. We didn't use the Arctic Pak and see no reason to have done so. If you will be camping in much colder temperatures, you may need it.

Mine have heat tape or wrap around the valves also. With that on it produces enough heat by volume to keep the pump and filter from freezing. You need to keep the tanks full, and a well insulated bottom. I take my remote temp stat out of the refer and put it in the basement then I always know what temp it is down their. What I had to do through is put two shut off valves in the basement for the low drains that are below the insulated area, I keep those empty so they can not freeze. once it starts there is no stopping it. Or wrap foil insulation around the blue and red lines below the bottom.

Yes, I know. But I really just do it for my own personal satisfaction.
