This is going to be the first year we will spend a winter in our fifth wheel. Although we have had our 2006 26' Fifth Wheel for a few years now, we are still "green" when it comes to maintenance and what have you.
My question pertains to the paperwork and advertisements/guides we received with our camper when purchased.
As stated in title of this thread, my question is about the switch located near the thermostat control panel.
I am assuming this is for the black holding tank. And I have read about keeping that closed until ready to empty once at least 3/4 full. I have also read about the possiblity of adding rv antifreeze while in use and that would also be another question I would like validated through this site...
am I correct with the tank heater being for the holding tank(s) of black and possibly gray waste water? And/or besides skirting and insulating the camper, maintaining a warm temperature underneath it- do we need to do something particular for the water lines or what have you to pipes/tank in the way of fresh water otherwise?
We are from the north so we understand the need to drip water in extreme freezing conditons, etc.
