Heating for Fresh Water and Holding Tanks
« on: January 03, 2018, 10:25:02 AM »
I have Forza 34T and Winnebago has told me that when the furnace is active, vents also heat the freshwater and holding tanks. Has anyone been able to confirm this in sub-freezing temps?

That is probably a 100% certainty, especially since Winnebago said so. The furnace duct runs fore and aft along the centerline just below the floor and the factory cuts some openings in the furnace duct to let some warm air egress to the plumbing compartment.

Even so, I use a small electric heater in my plumbing bay when our temps are going to be below freezing for more than 12 hours or so.
