Keep from freezing

I have been fighting with freezing Tha water lines Etc; in the motorhome.I think I found it. I use a Thermo cube. They are available at most Box stores They are in different On/off Settings, I put it the th3 It comes on at 35 deg. and turns off at 40 deg appx. That way I don't have to have the light Burning/heater plugged in when not being needed. A 60 watt light bulb give off a lot of warmth. and enought to keep the frost away. Where a Heater enen when turned down will still use 1200 watts while it is in the heat mode. I put the thermo cubes in permenantly And they work/turn on when needed.

Thermocube website



The TC-3 turns on at 35F, off at 45F.

Great idea, Bachler

Thanks above. Just Type (Thermocube ) on your home page And they come up at The various settings. They cost From $8.00 To $15.00 bucks.I even keep them plugged in our Rental huoses crawl space and in the Farm well/ Pump houses They are priceless. Life is good.

I didn't know that's what it's called but I use one of those in my pump house to help protect the pipes from freezing. I plug a cord with a 60 watt bulb when I know it'll be real cold.
