I have these pads on the gray and black plumbing exposed below the underbelly of my Windjammer, too. I thought it was a nice touch. I didn't know I had them until I actually looked hard at them to see what they were.

Nope I dropped the Belly when our unit was Brand New,to see where all the water was coming from,found a Body Grinder cut in the F/W tank! That was replaced with a New heater pad as well! The next time was at the Factory for a water pickup change,and they had ALL the items needed to change it and it took a LOT longer than 15 minute job as posted by others! Youroo!!

Thanks so much! I don't have the switches. The gentleman doing the PDI did say "heated tanks" and I misunderstood him based on my inexperience. Last year I used the electric fireplace to keep the chill off but when it starts freezing, I'll make sure to use the furnace too.

You got it- that's exactly the correct procedure to keep you and your tanks warm and cozy in freezing weather. Enjoy your great trailer, we love ours!

Tank Heater Switch Location in 2016 Wildcat 312 QBX

CWPPWC,
We have a new Wildcat 312 QBX and this issue also puzzled me. Our tank switch is red when on and is located with our other switches and I have taken a picture of it for you. One photo is an attempt to show you where they are (the slides are in) then there is one pic with the switch off and one with it on. I hope this helps!
Fred
