I have tank heaters, so i am hoping none of the tanks are froze/toast....i believe it is the line coming from the fresh water tank on the exterior wall, i just have no idea how to find it.....area where the water heater and pump is, seem to be warm as well as under the sinks and shower....so maybe a line on the exterior wall...i just hope the tank heaters keep them from breaking

Thank you, i will definitely try a heat source in that area. my tank is by the hitch in this coach. this is a tiny coach a tracer breeze. but i am told it got -12 without windchill last night....it is up to 19 currently with sun, and i have the thermostat cranked up to 72 hoping i survive this without a break....

ODD!!

I just went out to my pass through storage area to grab some bottled water. although they are very cold, none are frozen. the pass through storage houses my tank i believe, possibly behind a panel. i am hoping that since the bottled water wasn't frozen, maybe it is the line from the tank on the exterior wall. I do know my black, grey, and fresh tanks all have heaters....any input on this? You guys are so helpful, i appreciate it so much....This will be my last winter in Michigan, i am thrilled that it hasn't had a lot of issues, but between furnace going out last year (Brand New Coach) and the lines freezing this year, hoping to head to North Carolina in the spring....I do however still love being a full time RVer

If there is a cabinet of any sort, or even just some sort of an access panel, on the inside of the wall where you think the water lines are then open the door to that cabinet. That will help to get some heat to that section of the wall, and hopefully to the water lines.

I don't know, truth be told....I am not 100% sure i am correct on placement of it, but it would seem to make sense as it is where the fill area on the coach is.... I would have to crawl in my pass through, which is not a problem, i am a small gal, but we have 14 inch of snow currently and i have no idea what i would do with all the stuff in my pass through...but i will definitely see if i can figure it out...Great advise thanks

Thank you so much! Quick question for you, or anyone else. should i or should i not keep the water heater hot at this point? I use propane to heat the tank right now because the electric element is burnt out. I don't want to shorten the lifespan of the water heater, and didn't know if it is good or bad to continue to leave it on with Propane? I don't mind the cost of the propane at all, so that isn't a consideration. It is just so cold in Michigan right now it lights, more often then the furnace.... Thanks in advance

I have a one of these that i put in my wet bay. We are in Florida now (sorry) but left in December in single digit weather. Kept the wet bay warm the entire trip.

What has worked for me this winter in Texas - Currently parked in our driveway connected to 50a shore power but not to water. Tanks are heated. I put 75W halogen flood lights in bays where I see water lines. 3 bays so 3 lights. Had a small electric heater inside the RV to augment the furnace. Kept the thermostat at 60 degrees. I put refrigerator/freezer thermometers in the bays with lights to monitor temps. Lowest outside temp we experienced was -1*. That morning when I checked the temps in the bays, lowest temp was 40*. The other two were 58 and 60.
