TS Express 5th Wheel Full Time in winter

Newbie TS owner and first time RV owner. It's a KSTSO with 3 axles. We plan to FT this winter for one year. If anyone has some tips on winter living.....the bottom is completely closed....how and I supposed to make sure the tanks stay warm? And check on them?....it's supposed to have heated tanks...I assume that's via the propane furnace. ...don't want to run propane. ..heat lamps under and enclosedo under belly?..lots of questions....thanks for any help ahead of time.

They are electrically heated tanks. The switches in my rig are over the bathroom sink. There are heating pads under the waste and fresh tanks. Get a heated water supply hose.

Is there a way to PM you? I like this 5th wheel but it definitely has some quirks. Pulling it now to home.

That looks like the hot water switch. Check your fuse panel and see if any are labeled “heating pad”. You can pm at calsage@gmail.com

Thanks. That switch is the hot water switch. The prior owner says the tanks must be heated by the propane furnace.
