The product is exactly what I was looking for, only wished I got it earlier, but since this last freeze I experienced I haven't had need for its use but at least I have it now for the next time. The product appears to be sturdy and well made. Second time doing business with etrailer.com and I am very pleased with the service. Shipment was handled with speed and accuracy.

See what our Experts say about this Valterra RV Fresh Water

  • 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.

    The Valterra Self-Regulating Heating Cable for RV Plumbing part # W01-1573 does not need to be plugged into a GFI or GFCI (Ground Fault Circuit Interrupter) outlet however since this plug is near water it is safer to plug it into a protected outlet like a GFCI.

    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.

  • Adding Heaters to a Fifth Wheel Camper
    To add heating protection to your fifth wheel camper I recommend using a heating element such as the Valterra # W01-1573. This heater is going to be useful in a number of different applications: holding tanks, water supply lines, drain pipes, metal pipes (up to 3" in diameter), and plastic pipes (up to 3" in diameter). 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 and...

  • Can Valterra Self-Regulating Heating Cable for RV Plumbing be Insulated

  • Amperage Draw of Valterra Self Regulating Heating Elements 25 and 50 foot Length

  • Can One Valterra W01-1573 Self-Regulating Cable Be Used on Water Supply Line and Holding Tank
    You could certainly install the # W01-1573 heating cable in the manner you described. It would do a great job on the supply line, but how effective it would be on the tank will depend on the tank's capacity and size. Unfortunately, Valterra couldn't provide a 'rule of thumb' on the size of tank this particular set up would be best with. I'd run the line straight against the supply line, and run the element serpentine fashion on the underside of the tank, keeping the loops about a foot...

  • 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.

  • Can ThermaHeat RV Holding Tank Heater Pads Be Compressed
    I reached out to my contact at LaSalle Bristol regarding their ThermaHeat RV Holding Tank Heater Pads like # 277-000164, and she did say that the pads should be applied to the bottom of the tank and should not be subjected to any kind of pressure or compression. Compressing the pads like you described would not allow for proper operation and may even lead to damage. Your best option for using the pad will be to try and add some spacers between the brackets to relieve that pressure that...

  • Solution to Prevent Plumbing on Slide-In Camper From Freezing
    Heating pads such as the # 277-000164 are designed for 29 to 40 gallon tanks which are much larger than the tanks on your Lance 650 truck camper. My fear is that they could possibly get too hot and damage the tank. From what you describe, a solution such as a self-regulating heating cable such as the Valterra # W01-1573 for a 25 foot or # W01-1574 for a 50 foot length would be your best bet. The cables operate on 120V AC power, so you'll need an inverter like # DU89FR to power them. I've...

  • 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.

  • 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...

  • 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 holding...
