Dave, I just redid my underbelly a month ago. I saw the tank heaters for the first time. They're nothing more than a sticky heat pad. Are they really controlled? I kind of regretted not to replaced the two damaged ones while I was there (tore apart by the rodents). Erwin

Mt wife and I are full timing it in Cincinnati. We have a 28' Grey Wolf TT and all we use to heat it is a 1500 watt heater. For your situation I would recommend leaving the factory furnace on with your cabinet doors open to keep the pipes warm, heat tape and insulate the main water line, and turn on your tank heaters. That should keep everything from freezing unless you get into some longer cold spells
