    Tank Heaters?

    I live in central Texas and don't have any plans to camp up north in the winter. Should I add the tank heaters to my order?

    The temps here will dip below 30 a handful of days each year with a low in the teens . The unit will be stored in an enclosed non insulated shed.

    Don't plan on winterizing since we can camp year round down here.

    Thanks

    If you'd been camping in those temps, you'd be happy to have those 12V tank heaters. The advantage of the 12V tank heaters is that you could keep the tanks/valves from freezing without having to run the camper's furnace, which is the other heat source for that area...important if you're not on metered electricity sites.

    I wish this option was available on the Reflection line. We frequently camp where the temps are below freezing at night. I think the camper can be kept comfortable with the electric fireplace and a space heater (or two) and I wouldn't have to run the propane furnace to keep the tanks heated.

    Dave - You can purchase aftermarket heaters for the rig.
