Where is the switch you had on your Scottsdale and what did it do? I have a 2003 Scottsdale and I am not aware of the switch or what it does. The reason is probably that we do not travel much in the winter except to head south and I have never had to look for it. I leave it winterized until we get to good weather. Thank you.

If you had the switch it would be to the left of your panel for water hose,flush tank inlet,water pump switch. I have been told that its discontinued unless you order the "cold weather pkg."---"007"

The switch was located on the panel in the utility compartment, where the water pump switch and water service connections are located. The switch activated a fan that blew warm air down into the storage tanks area. As best I remember, it only worked when the furnace was on. My Newmar dealer told me they did away with the fan & switch in 2004; gravity now flows the warm air into the tanks area (which I don't think is as efficient).

Ok, here is a gotcha that I just experienced. Moving my MA from MD to NC. Inside temp was 65+ outside temp was 25. Everything was fine until I connected water at final destination. Solenoid for the Ice Maker was cracked and was POURING WATER. It has a heater attached but evidently is either overcome by the circulating cold air or it doesn't work going down the road. I have cutoff the water and isolated the solenoid until spring. OBTW the switch in the water compartment is labled "FAN" or "BLOWER".

I frequently stay in the RV for long periods during the winter. I keep a 60-75 watt light in the Water compartment and holding tank area and have had no problems. I do run the furnace when Temp is less than 32.

We have a 2004 Country Star with a polar package and have the switches and the tank heater pads with a switch in the toilet room. We had -12 thats right minus 12 and had no problem except a stated before, used l lot of propane. When I was younger and had older cars etc. I used light bulbs to keep things from freezing, and it really helps. It's amazing how much it helps. tinker
