Holding tank heaters help!!!
« on: February 19, 2018, 08:20:24 PM »
I have a 2006 dutchmen Denali 30BS-DSL and I have the tank heater option. The switches for the tank heaters are not labeled. Does anyone know which switch goes to which tank?

I don't know the answer, but the question makes me curious:  If conditions are such that tank heaters are needed, wouldn't you turn them all on anyway?

Like Gary said I don't know if it makes a difference. However, you could use an infrared thermometer to see which tank is heating up with which switch.

I believe the heaters are thermostatically controlled to come on at something like 35* so just turning the switch on may not turn them on unless it is near freezing.

Just make sure all tanks have an inch of liquid in them to prevent damage from the heaters. Perhaps if it gets very cold turning each one off for an hour would allow you to take a reading with a temperature gun to see which tank cooled off.
