Winter RV travel can be gratifying. It can rekindle memories of sledding down snow-banked hills and huddling around a fire with blankets and hot cocoa. The feelings of youth and time shared with family and friends may come flooding back. But when the outside temperature is cold enough, these romantic feelings of yesteryear will come to an abrupt halt with the realization that your freshwater tank is frozen solid. And just like that, you are out in the snow trying to thaw out your water system and find a way to keep it flowing.
Just because it is a home on wheels, doesn't mean it is a four-season home on wheels. So before cold weather stops you in your tracks, take a look and consider if you are insulated for Winter or not. If not, you might think about adding an RV tank heating pad or two to confirm your clean and dirty water stays liquid so you can empty it at your convenience.
Our RV Tank Heating pads are a great way to keep things moving. They are easy to install and sized for compatibility, making this an affordable and handy update that will provide long-lasting comfort. Designed and engineered to protect holding tanks up to 50 gallons, it is thermostatically controlled. Once it is switched to "on", when the tank temperature drops to 45°F, the heater will activate and will continue to heat the tank until it reaches 65°F, shutting itself down. It will cycle as needed as long as it receives constant electrical power and until you turn it off, freeing you up to move about the cabin. The peel and stick backing will adhere to most tank surfaces and the slender profile makes them a perfect fit for your tight space.
If your RV is not equipped to handle extreme temperatures but you want to take advantage of winter travel with a clear conscience, maximize your time and effort with the simple addition of a tank heating pad from RecPro.
