291RESL Cold Weather Camping

I have a question that I really have not been able to find an answer to. My 2016 291RESL says that it is has an heated and enclosed underbelly. How is the underbelly heated? Are there tank heaters, and if so how do you turn them on? Thank you all for your help!

Typically a "heated underbelly" is accomplished by them stuffing a heat duct down to where it will pump warm air into the belly area, then there should be a hole cut under a cabinet somewhere to act as an air return. So you have to have the LP furnace running to have a heated belly area. If you have tank heaters there should be switches for them. Typically they will be in the same area as your water heater and water pump switch. I am not familiar with your specific unit, hopefully someone that is will chime in shortly.

Hi. I own a 2017 291RESL and yes the furnace must be on to heat the underbelly
Any questions let me know, I've studied this model very well
