Is there a temperature rating for a 295rsx?

Or basically how cold can I go? are the tanks heated?

I can't answer your temperature question but my 295 tanks have heating pads. Can't say if they all do. Do you have the top switch in this pic?

We're still here in nePA and a couple of weeks ago it got done to the mid to low 20's. We're in a 2014 293REX. No heated tanks. I put foam pipe insulation on the water hose. No problems but these floors get COLD!

Your tanks are probably heated by a heat duct that vents into the enclosed underbelly. We have traveled in temps as low as 18 F when we had our 2010 30lsbs. (Just upgraded this year to Silverback). I had a remote temp sensor in the underbelly, we used the furnace and the underbelly never got below 45 F during those colder temps.

If you are using electric heaters this will not heat the underbelly, the furnace should be run enough to keep the underbelly above freezing. I would recommend a remote sensor, they can be purchased at Wal Mart for very little that way you can keep an eye on the temps in the tank area.
