Keep in mind that you need to be plugged in to shore power in order to use the tank heaters. If not, your house batteries will be drained very quickly.

Yes since the black tank is inside the AI, the only thing exposed to freezing temps is the piping, dump valve, macertor, and the hose. That assumes the interior is maintained above freezing.

I used mine two winters on trips. Blew out lines with air, flushed toilet & sink drains with about 1/2 gal antifreeze, then put emptied tanks and flushed Mercator and line by emptying tanks and pouring antifreeze in black tank until pink froth came out of Mercator line.

Used toilet and flushed liberally with antifreeze. It was in teens & 20s and I didn't have any issues.
