Arctic Package

Looked around, didn't really find an answer, so here I be, asking all the minds. My 2014 Solera 24R has the artic package, if I plug it into a 110v 15Amp outlet, will that be enough to run the artic package while I leave it stored under a carport? Live in South Texas, not too many freeze days. Thanks

If you have 4 tanks at 7 amps each (@12v) that's 337 watts. No problem at all for a 15 amp outlet.

Artic package

Unless you're living in it and are using the tanks, you shouldn't have to run the tank heaters........... winterize it and put a Battery Tender on the batteries to keep them charged and you should be alright. jdadoug

My guess is that continuous use of the artic pack over weeks, might burn it up. All it is, is a heated pad that sticks to the bottom of the tank to supply ambient heat above the outside temperature. I vote winterize too. Besides, if you get a good freeze, even for a day or two, it could expand some pump parts, etc. and thats never a good thing.

If electricity goes out so much for your heaters. Anytime a RV Iis not winterized in freezing temperatures it must be monitored.

Remember that you must have the House Batteries ON for the Arctic package to work!

Being in South Texas I don't know why you'd need the artic pack or to winterize? Just drain your lines if your not using the rig and monitor it. I'm still hoping to get one more trip in before winterizing.

Mid-20s occur often enough. I've seen it in the teens. We still have to winterize.

I didn't think it got that cold in Texas.

Henry: How did you fare in the "Great September Storm?" Did you get any of that snow? Looks like we got out of SD just in time!

By the way... I spent a year in El Paso when I was in the Army... one of the coldest winters I've ever been in!
