Alpine has made our short short list--but when looking at it in Hershey...the holding tank size impressed us..but are the holding tanks heated? When we upgrade we would like to be able to travel to friends up north and not worry about anything but snow.

We have forced air from the furnace ducted to our holding tanks. We have traveled in 10 degree weather, and camped in the low teens with never a problem. I do keep a remote temp sensor in the holding tank bay just in case. I do not recall ever seeing it below 40 degrees.

One of the reasons we purchased our Alpine was because of the holding tank and fresh H2O capacity.

Good luck in your search. All of us will be happy to help with your questions .

We live out in our old van. Travel all across this land. Drive until the city lights dissolve into a country sky, me and you - hand in hand.

Yes with your auqa hot system the actual tank/storage area is like a 3rd heat zone. it is vented and therefore your tanks should be fine in most conditions.
