Keep your faucet, shower and water pipes in your RV from freezing during the winter with the Tank Blanket RV Holding Tank Heater - 20 Gallon, DC, 12" x 18". The Tank Blanket is an auxiliary heating device, that acts like an electric heating blanket, designed to be applied to the exterior of a holding tank in your RV, trailer or camper.
How Tank Blanket works: Once installed on your RV water tank, the thermostat switch controls the flow of electrical current to the heating element. The thermostat switch will turn on the heater at approximately 40 degrees F and will turn off the heater at approximately 58 degrees F. Because aluminum is a good insulator, the backing of this heater will hold the heat in. This process will keep the liquid in the tank from freezing during harsh weather.
