If you have them installed, there should be a rocker switch on the main black control panel, next to the water pump switch.

In our 2018 29MV, they are on the main control panel just inside the front door on the left.

Our shake-down trip turned out to be three nights in a campground about 40 miles from home (and 5 miles from the dealer) where temperatures dropped so low that the CG turned the water off at 7:00 PM and back on at 9:00 AM. I drained the white hose and put it in the shower so it was pliable in the morning when they turned the water back on and opened the low point drains. I used the tank heaters all three nights and I don't think anything froze. When I dumped the tanks on the last morning everything flowed as it should and I didn't see any signs of ice. So my uneducated opinion is that they worked as designed. However, my test was not in extreme weather where the temperatures never rise above 32 degrees. There was also much more liquid in the grey tank from dishes and showers than there was in the black tank from...

I have the tank heaters as well and have turned them on but honestly i did not think they did much they are not much more than a water bed heating pad stuck on the tank.

Also I wouldn't be worried the tank freezing so much. I would be worried more about the water lines as they are not heated and will freeze solid well before the tanks would.
