    Heated Holding Tanks

    How do the tank heaters work? I have not found any type of switch or control for them.

    Heated underbelly and heated tanks are different. Heated underbelly uses furnace to heat tanks. Tank heaters have a switch on main control panel and you turn it on, the tanks have 12v heating pads with built in thermostat control. If you have tank heaters, it's a single switch for all tanks combined.

    Hi Bob,

    If you donít have the tank heater switch, you donít have electric tank heaters.

    Sorry...

    Yeah, if you have a tan exterior Reflection, you don't have them. Switch is in the control panel.

    ... but don't worry. The fresh and waste tanks are the last things to freeze due to their mass when they have something in them. Your outside hose, the internal water lines and pump will freeze way before the tanks. If you're using the unit and it isn't winterized, just keep the furnace set to keep the basement above freezing.

    Again, depends when it was built....if you own a tan exterior one, the packages were different than they are now. Do you have auto leveling?

    That doesn't mean anything. There was tan exterior 2021's and there was white exterior 2021's.

    The white ones all have auto leveling and tank heaters. Tan do not.

    Our Imagine has water pump inside cargo area. I have taken a quartz work light and put inside cargo area when temperatures drop below about 25; it will keep pump and water lines from freezing. Also let furnace run to heat under belly.
