Water tank head pads (2017 3170DS)

2017 3170DS

I have a week long trip to western Ohio at the end of November. Does anyone know if the water tank heat pads (and furnace) will be sufficient to prevent damage in potentially winter temperatures?

The furnace will be running during the drive and while parked in Ohio.

This is a newer motor home for me, and this would be the first trip with potentially cold weather and carrying water.

If the heat tube goes into the compartment where all your water lines,filter and pump is then, yes. I do it on mine in between trips.
