Heated Tanks

Anyone know if it's ok to leave the heated tanks on for days at a time when connected to shore power? Also are all the tanks heated?

I don't see where it would be any problem at all -- especially if you have liquids in the tanks. The tank heaters should be thermostatically controlled so they only turn on when the temperature is low enough. They turn themselves off when the temperature rises. Flipping the switch inside your camper only activates them. They turn themselves off and on.

All of my tanks are heated. Forest River even put heaters on my exposed drain lines.
