Hmmmm ... who else offers RV tank heaters besides the company listed in my link above (Ultraheat) ... I sure haven't seen any others advertised or mentioned??

The tank heaters will work fine. If they are 12v the converter will supply the power. Either way you will want to be plugged in.

Or is this an off grid adventure?

From my prior post, click, scroll down a bit, and they have embedded a couple of other links for/to tank heaters.

If it was up to me (my Itasca came with whatever Winnebago used), I would only "install and trust" UltraHeat (12V) pad heaters on my tanks:
