One of the requirements (and a sensible one, at that) for residence at the RV park that is my new home in Cincinnati is to use fused heat tape for the water supply hose. I've called several RV supply stores, and they all send me to Home Depot for heat tape.
That would be fine if Home Depot had a clue what heat tape is. They only carry a variety of heat cable that clearly tells on the back of the package to NOT use it on hoses.
I see lots of circumstantial evidence that heat tape exists by searching on the Internet, but I'll be hornswoggled (is that a real word?) if I can find any, even online.
Is there a secret handshake or password I need to use to get someone to sell me some? I have a regular 25' hose connected (with pressure controller) that seems to work just fine, but I need to get some heat tape added in a short time. Cold weather is coming soon, and I'm not prepared!
I'd appreciate some guidance here.
