Switch and bathroom

Steve is correct

its for the heated tanks and was told its temperature activated too - ie must be on and temperature must be below a curtain temperature before heated components turn on ---

Steve current temp in Seattle is 88 degrees today Crazy for NW

He is absolutely correct...skipped a brain cell when I said bathroom. The fuel station switch is in the same spot in the kitchen. Which also begs the question, why is it in the kitchen

Anyway, heated tank switch for sure in the bathroom.

Sitting in west Yellowstone holiday rv park on Hebgen lake now . low temps for the next week 28 and maybe some snow . spent the last week in north Colorado where it rained,snowed,hailed and temps during the day 39 lows 27 . no tank heaters , no problems , no issues freezing or staying warm with the furnace . I was there 7 days used 6 gallons of propane out of one 30 lbs tank and about 1.5 gallons of gas per 12 hrs per day for the new champion 2000 watt . since the gen was new i was putting it through it's paces running all day . small electric heater during the day 600 watt and watched to much TV as it was to Cold to go catch a few trout . Shut the gen off every night and let the batteries take over could have gone more then one night but what the heck had the run the genny . Also used about 45 gallons of water

Well now the point of the story no need to worry about freezing when it's just below 32 for a few hrs a day . if it were going to be 32or less all day and night then maybe

The new heater is very nice - even keeps garage heated

Hoping to get to Yellowstone in late August / September

Mine is for the overhead fan. I changed a few things around. It used to be the tank heater switch.
