Is The Waste Discharge Compartment Heated?

For those of you who are year-rounders or camp or transit in cold weather, how do you keep the waist discharge compartment piping from freezing? My compartment does not seem to be heated, is yours? If not, what do you do to keep.the waste in the pipes from freezing?

Normally the black tank has access to some sort of heating to keep the contents from freezing. There isn't (or shouldn't be) any waste in the pipes unless the tank valve has a leak.

My tradewinds has a duct from the rear heater to the wet bay

The black tank valve is hard up against the bulkhead and thus it should be protected, however, the gray tank valve is down stream of about 1 ft of pipe in front of the bulkhead into the house. Should I consider ripping this so that the valve is close to the bulkhead?

So you have to keep the heater going if traveling in freezing weather? Don't think mine has this duct but will look again.

Why not buy R22 or better, fiberglass batts (covered somehow)...or surplus sleeping bags and cram into this space. We use a 100w drop light when plugged in.
