Yes, UltraHeat® Holding Tank Heaters will still be necessary to give your holding tanks protection from freezing in below freezing temperatures. Enclosing, insulating and heating the underbelly of an RV will only provide protection from freezing down to about +15°F to +20 °F (-9°C to -6°C) without wind chill. In laboratory testing, UltraHeat® Tank Heaters protected holding tanks from freezing down to -11°F (-24°C) on holding tanks exposed (open to the weather) below the floor of the RV. Once Ultra Heat Holding Tank Heaters are installed on an RV with insulated, enclosed and forced-air heated underbelly, you can expect protection from freezing to be significantly below -11°F (-24°C). Results will vary depending on the type of underbelly enclosure, amount of insulation, etc.
