Video Transcript for Valterra RV Fresh Water - Heating Elements and Pads - W01-1573 Review

Today, we're going to be taking a look at the Valterra self-regulating heating element. This is a self-regulating heating cable that's designed for recreational vehicles, residential and commercial applications. It's going to measure 25 feet long. What this is, is it's designed to provide freeze protection for certain items and applications such as holding tanks, water supply lines, drain pipes, metal and plastic pipes up to three inch diameter, as well as roof and gutter deicing. It can also be used with water meters, outside pipes and taps. The self-regulating design, what that means is that it has this core in it that becomes warmer as temperatures become cooler. It's a really nice design, very easy to use.

One of the neat things about it is there's going to be a small light here in the clear plug, so once you have this hooked up to power, the lighted electrical plug will light up and it simply lets you know when power is connected to it. If that light goes off, then you know that your cord, the heating element, is not receiving power, so you'll need to check that and inspect that. It can be used for indoor and outdoor applications. It does feature a nice waterproof outer jacket for outdoor use, and it is ETS listed. That's going to do it for today's look at the Valterra self-regulating heating element.

Do you have a question about this RV Fresh Water?


  • Can More than One Heating Pad be Used on a 100 Gallon Fresh Water Tank
  • You could use more than one holding tank heater if you wanted to and there are different options available. Pad heater # 277-000164 is one option. There is also another model, # 277-000163, with different dimensions. We also have elbow heater pad # 277-000161 (for 3 inch pipe) and # 277-000162 (for 1-1/2 inch pipe). And we have several self-regulating heating elements: # W01-1572 (15 feet), # W01-1573 (25 feet), and # W01-1574 (50 feet). These were designed for freeze protection for...

  • Amperage Draw of Valterra Self Regulating Heating Elements 25 and 50 foot Length
  • I spoke with my contact at Valterra and the heating elements of both the part # W01-1573 and # W01-1574 both draw up to 300 watts at max capacity.

  • Keeping Fresh Water Tank and Lines from Freezing in a Lived-In 5th Wheel Trailer
  • If you live in the trailer all year then presumably you will be running heaters when it is cold. Provided the hot water heater and plumbing is internal to the trailer then the ambient temperature would prevent it from freezing. But I assume that the water heater is fed from the fresh water tank which is more external to the trailer. To keep it from freezing you could use a tank heater such as # 277-000164. Or we have heating element # W01-1573 designed for freeze protection on holding...

  • Where and How to Install Valterra 25-Foot Self Regulating Heating Element W01-1573
  • The Valterra 25-Foot Self Regulating Heating Element # W01-1573 and other lengths like 50-foot # W01-1574 and 15-foot # W01-1572 are intended to be installed on the exterior of plastic or metal water pipes, drain pipes and holding tanks. They typically attach to pipes using fiberglass tape or plastic zip-ties like # DW05727-10. These are not to be used with extension cords.

  • Pipes That Valterra Self Regulating Heat Element can Work With
  • The Valterra Self Regulating Heat Element would be able to work with the flexible plastic as well as PVC pipes so long as they are no more than 3" in diameter. This unit comes in three different lengths, 15' # W01-1572, 25' # W01-1573 and 50' # W01-1574. I've added links to a couple video reviews of these products for you to take a look at.

What it will do is give your tanks and pipes protection from being frozen. It is a self-regulating heater which gets warmer when temperatures drop. It is 25 feet long...

  • Can Valterra Self-Regulating Heating Cable for RV Plumbing keep RV Water Tank From Freezing
  • The Valterra Self-Regulating Heating Cable for RV Plumbing # W01-1573 that you referenced was designed for your exact situation where you want to keep the plumbing and tanks from freezing. Another option that's more popular since it's a waste tank is to basically just pour antifreeze down the drains as it will keep it all from freezing. Typically you only run the heaters on the freshwater pipes/plumbing since it's water that can't have antifreeze since it's for drinking.

  • Can Valterra Self Regulating Heating Element Come Into Contact with Itself
  • It is perfectly fine for the Valterra Self Regulating Heating Element # W01-1573 that you referenced to come in contact with itself as you wrap it around your water pipe. This will not cause any issues with regards to overheating or damage. I verified this with my contact at Valterra.
