Are the electric baseboards a hazard, do they work, has anyone found alternatives maybe a small ceramic ?

In my 87FC there was a plug for heat tape that I unplugged underneath the bathroom sink area, inside the bottom door on the right side, there was another access door with an outlet behind it, which powered the heat tape for the pipes that ran inside the chase along the drivers side. Did you get that one?

No, defiantly did not get that one, I will have a look for it next time I'm at the Bird.
Thanks.

I found two plugs in my bathroom behind that access door, I could not see them without disassembling the box with the access panel. Does anyone know what the the other plug is for or were they both heat tape ?

Thanks
