The Model 1200 was one our first heaters designed and produced for retail packaging and aftermarket sales back around the start of the 1990’s, the most common holding tank capacity back then was no more than 30 Gallons (114 Liters), while some larger and more expensive RV units boasted 35 and even a whopping 40 Gallon (133 / 151 Liters) holding tank volumes.
The Model 1200 could be used on just about any holding tank in the RV Marketplace at that time and really paved the way for the UltraHeat brand in retrofitting existing RV’s with an anti-icing system like the new RV’s on the Dealer lots also offering UltraHeat tank heaters. This Model is still today one of our most popular heat panels sold in the retail aftermarket, offering standalone protection for RV Holding Tanks Up to 55 gallons (208 Liters) from freezing down to -11°F (-24°C), fully exposed and hanging onto the bottom of an RV. Much lower temperatures can be sustained with additional installation modifications and insulation.
Enclosed underbellies didn’t exist back then, so this tank heater was and still is equipped with a thicker, closed cell foam backing to repel both fluids and road debris kick up. Like all of our RV Tank Heaters, this model has a built-in sensor to monitor and maintain the holding tank fluids between approx... 44°F and 64°F (6.6° & 17.7°C), once powered up in colder weather conditions and with fluid present within the tank.
Like all of our other RV heaters, this panel has an easy peel-n-stick backing using our proprietary adhesive formula, designed not to breakdown and ultimately fail and release like most on the market, in fact ours increases its adhesion properties in the ageing process. The method in which our adhesive is applied also gives it a stronger molecular concentration, far superior to the secondary adhesion process most commonly used. All reasons which is why we are not surprised to hear of reported heat panels still attached and functional after decades of use.
