Installing heating pads

I have a 2017 Freedom Elite 30FE. I want to install heating pads for the gray and fresh water tanks. The panel on the wall has two switches that say heating pads but do not flip when pressed and there are no heating pads when I looked underneath. If I install the heating pads and run the wires to the panel, will there be power to the switches (install new flip switches) without running the wiring to the battery?

Some heating pad systems will not come on until the temperature drops to a certain point. On my prior Class C the "Artic Pak" would not come on until the outside temp (temp sensor attached to the tank) dropped to 33 degrees. Until that time the switch looked like the system was not functioning.
