Tank Heaters

I have a 2016 Thor Vegas 24.1. It has tank heater switches. I am just wondering whether those heaters have to have electricity to run or they run on 12 V. If that makes sense thanks for anyone that knows.

These all work from 12VDC. Any higher in voltage would be a problem in the nearness of water. Watch your battery voltage and charging with these, some are power hogs.

Curious if you have breakers or fuses for tank heaters and in which panel?

All of my units with tank heaters had 120v breakers in the breaker box.

they didn't work on 12 volt.

Find the breakers labeled tank heaters

This was on rigs built before 2016

12 Volt = FUSES, not breakers.
