I have always had a lower end, no frills RV unit.. so to get one with a electirc/gas water heater, heated tanks etc is a BIG step up for hubby and me.
I have 3 tanks heated on 1 switch they also have heat tape around the elbows and valves. They are thermostatically controlled to 60 degrees. What it is, is like a pad glued to the bottom. When it gets cold below 32 I turn them on. I keep some water in each because it will heat up and help with the underbelly heat. I have a remote stat in the basement. We have been down to 27 here and the lowest my basement was 41 degrees so far. The tanks with some water in them add to the heat of the basement. It will take longer for them to get cold. If you run them on 12v only not plugged in you will drain your batteries in 1 or 2 nights, They pull a lot of juice, I tried it because my dealer did not how many amps they pull. So they are great if you are plugged in.......Guess we will not be seeing you at the rally this year being I did not read one about the Glades again at the kick back like last year...
PS I had a cigar for you CUBAN.
