Electrical specs for 30hfs5

Anybody have electrical specs for the 30hfs5? Just trying to figure out which switche is for the heated holding tanks. It's already snowing here in lovely Alberta.

Do we actually have HEATED tanks, or are they just super-insulated, as someone mentioned in another thread? I'd love to hear the answer to both these questions--as well as your question...??

I'm pretty I've got heated tanks with the fall package.

I have the heated tanks. It is a pad glued to the bottom of each tank. The pads are approx. 10" x 10" each tank has one pad. The black tank line also has an extra small pad on the outlet line. The switch to turn the pads on is located on the bathroom wall. It is the unmarked switch next to the bathroom light.

So at least on mine the switch sends power to the pads and the pads heat the fluid in the tanks to keep the temperature of the fluid above freezing.

I have never needed to turn them on.

Don't have an extra switch in the bathroom. But I do have one by the stove. I'm guessing that's it. I wish the labeled the damn things. I have 3 switches in my trailer that I've no clue what they are for.

What year and model. Where are the switches located. I'm sure someone can help you with the swicthes. Just as an example on my year and model, listed in my signature, the switch on the refrigerator wall next to the stove is for fuel station power.

I realize that each and every platform is unique and that holds true for the wiring layout. Just imagine if any other industry operated the same way. What if your $18k Honda auto had its headlight switch in the trunk.

Does all 30HFS5s come with double pane windows? Heated tanks?
