Water/Waste Tank Heater Installs 23ft '09 International


My wife and I live in Boulder CO and would love to use our AS throughout the winter. I'm considering having some sort of tank/pipe heating solution installed this year instead of winterizing. Does anyone have any recommendations on products, solutions and cost?

This isn't going to help much but wouldn't a power outage result in a frozen trailer?

It could. I'm thinking of this as another layer of protection. The trailer sits in my driveway and is closely monitored by me. On serious cold spells I will turn on the gas furnace. I'm also thinking that I might be able to get away with just draining the water after a trip and the combination of electric space heater and heated tanks will prevent any residual water in the pipes from freezing.

This way I can take a spontaneous winter trip and not have to worry about flushing out/wasting antifreeze.

There are heating pads that you can get for fresh water tanks and grey tanks... I would also think that heating taping the pluming lines would also help! (be sure to test that they don't get tooooo hot and cause a fire! The pipes that would freeze first are the hardest ones to get at and fix... so pay special attention to them!
