Wink 2005 Tsunami tank and bay heaters

We just purchased a 2005 Forest River Tsunami I was told that there should be bay heaters since it has an Aquahot system,but cannot find any thermostat or info,also there is a tank heater switch in the panel, but I am not sure of it is black/grey or fresh water tank.this is our first winter full timing in Kansas ,and we would like to figure some of this out before it gets too cold,
Thanks

I have the same thing and also have just purchased the Tsunami. I don't have any manuals so still trying to figure things out. I would like to know what the switch does also! I do notice something running in the morning (we live at 9000') and comiing out of the vent in the fresh water bind but it is cold air coming out.
Also when you have the shore power plugged in does it charge the 12v batteries? mine doesn't seem to be doing it.

We had that problem

Divide is high and cold,I grew up in Colorado Springs,
When we first plugged in we had that problem, do you have the charger light on on the panel? We had to replace our ac board on the inverter(Magnum M E series) and have not had problems.i have looked up on the web and downloaded inverter,Aquahot,dishwasher, ect .there are a lot of questions when you are green and living full time for sure.

yes the light shows charging but only charges the 6v batteries. Did you buy the unit in Houston?

No haven't had time to have it checked. Had another problem with the Jake Brake braking all the bolts in the engine.

The reason I asked if you got your unit in houston is that I was looking at a 41' there but got this 39 and it was in houston also.

Hi Robert .... I purchased a 2004 Tsunami 3508QS in June 2013 and have been collecting info from various sources. Given the pretty standard Freightliner/ Cummins XC chassis and substantial commonality of the various house systems with other motor home suppliers, there's been a fair amount of info available for harvest from the web. I also follow the Yahoo based Country Coach forum pretty closely and occasionally pickup some good info there as well. I'd be happy to compare notes on whatever ..... although I'm certainly not an expert here. ... Steve

Mine has a thermostats, behind panel in wet bay, where you drain black/great water. Hiding pretty well. Look behind panel, upper right corner
