Rubber mat with wires attached

I just found a rubber type mat laying under my Wildwood. It has a sticky side and there are wires connected to it.
What is this?
How do I fix?

That should be your tank heater. I'd use some spray adhesive and stick it back to the bottom of the tank.

Sounds like a tank heater where the contact cement loosened. Look at your tanks underneath...you should see other tank heaters on those. If all tanks have them, then it was probably installed on one of the pipes.

And insure they stay put by using some "Gorilla Tape" in addition. A couple strips across the pad and extending up the sides of the tank.
