Salem hemisphere 2016 272rlis heating pad ?

Hi! First season with our TT - can anyone help me understand where/how to turn the heating pads on that supposedly are in my holding tanks? I have a digital thermostat for the heater and a hot water heater switch on the panel. I don't see a separate switch for heating pads. Thanks!!

Look on your main switch panel if the switch is not there then you may not have tank heaters.

Thanks no switch there; I wonder if the breaker panel or the hidden fuse panel in the bathroom closet has such a switch or breaker...

I have the 282RK and I don't have this feature. The warming is from the furnace duct residual heat in the enclosed underbelly.

My MH has the heating pads there is a switch on the control panel marked Arctic pack. The pads attach to the bottom of the tanks and may be visible. My tanks are visible above the dump valves in an enclose compartment.

This question is about a Salem Hemisphere Lite Travel Trailer.

Anyway enjoy your Hemisphere; we too are in our first year with the 282RK. Haven't used in cold weather yet and living on the Gulf Coast it may be awhile. The DW and I really enjoy this unit, it is so much roomier and comfortable than our previous TT. But that is the way I understand the heated underbelly to work is you have to run the furnace.

Thanks all! Looks like I don't have heating pads vs. what the salesman said I had. Heat in the floor keeps tanks from freezing. Take care!
