Winter camping water tank

Hi all. I have a 2014 Seneca TS or at least it was titled as a 2014. I believe it's a later 2013. Anyway I'm going to a dog show in Indy next week for five days and need to fill my water tank. The 2013 { early } models had a 12 v heat pad in them. This one doesn't. I can't find a furnace outlet either. I was thinking of tapping into my inverter panel and trying to run a plug in the water center compartment and run a 200 watt heater as I go down the road. Or I can try to run ext cords to the compartments and run generator. I'm afraid to run five hours down the road with out some sort of heat down there. Any ideas or suggestions? Thanks, Chuck and Newfs

With the temps predicted to be -14 or better I don't think there is a lot you can do to keep things from freezing even inside the coach.

I've gotten by with temps in the 13/17 degree range that way. I actually did set up 200 watt heaters one in the tank area and one in the utility compartmet on a permanent basis using heat tape thermostats to contol them (on at 35 deg off at 50) after running a seperate a/c line in the tank area..

It's supposed to be -14 Mon night with a high of 4 on Tues. Good luck.

Thanks Grumpy for your info. Not sure how I will tackle this. I was a little early on my date . It's Feb 5th I will be leaving. Should be a little warmer.

The guessers, oh I mean the weather people, are saying by that week temps are supposed to be back in the 30's with lows in the mid teens. As I said those are very do-able in my opinion.
