Pre Wired?

I have a 2015 Micro Lite 23 FB.
Does anybody know if it is pre-wired for the optional holding tank heaters for winter operation?

Does it have the covered underbelly? If not it shouldn't be too hard to find out if it does, and if it doesn't it wouldn't be too hard to add.

If it has the sealed underbelly, it's harder to do anything under it, because you have to remove it and replace it when done, and sometimes it's a pain getting the screw holes, penetrations, etc. to line back up.

Your interior control panel should have switch openings marked tank heater with plugs in them. If this is so the next and easiest step would be to remove the panel and see if there are any unused wires behind it. If there are then you can then go down to the converter and look for other like wires and so forth according to your findings.
You might also give Forest River a call and ask if as a matter of course they include the wiring during construction. Good Luck.

a Micro Lite wasn't designed with winter camping in mind. They leave everything out possible to make it a Lite

lots of other stuff will freeze before tanks. Takes much longer to freeze a large volume of water vs a 1/2 inch pipe.

My wife and I have a Flagstaff 23FBDS which would be very similar to your Mini Lite. We just had our dealer install tank heaters. Cost us $750.00 (labor & material) , but we feel it was worth the money . The big factor is the labor to remove and reinstall the underbelly cover.
They are not pre wired even though there is a spot marked "Tank Heaters" on our panel . In fact , they installed our switch in a different spot.
The cost of the 3 pads was only about $180.00 . The rest was the labor. A very tedious job
