I don't have a photo available but on mine there is a plastic tray recessed into the floor under the hose connection. The bottom of the tray has a 3 or 4" threaded plug you remove to proved access to the hose connection when the bay door is closed. The tray also catches any dripping or spills from the tank discharge. When traveling in cold temps I have a piece of rigid insulation cut to fit that tray.

Yep, mine has a recessed tray. It came with a 3 inch deck plate which was too small for the sewer hose ends to pass through. I replaced it with a 4 inch deck plate and all is well now. I'll post a picture as soon as gets light out.

Woody- FWIW, just wrap the honey pipe & dump valve with some Frost King heat tape. That's what folks in Pennsyltucky use on their mobile homes.

Here is mine. I upsized the hole to a 4 inch deck plate. Woody, I see no reason for the tray. A simple plate should work just fine. Shoot, just a piece of plywood if you need it now. The deck plate comes from any Marine supply store.

Our M380 had the same configuration. I think the reason the tray was recessed was to make it easier to connect the drain hose.

If the bottom plastic tray is missing it would not be difficult to make one or have one made out of sheet metal. I had one made for my SOB at a local home air conditioning shop.

The round removable lid is called a deck plate and are available at marine shops or online in various sizes.

Default Heating the sewer compartment

I didn't want to mess around wrapping all that stuff so on the few projected cold days wherever in the South we are wintering, I just put a very small ceramic heater in that sewer compartment with a temperature control and turn it down very low. I plug it into the front bay with the two plugs on each side of the bus. If and when it gets cold, the heater comes on, and when it warms up it goes off. Would work great in the North too as long as you have power. Simple to get it in and out whenever. And since all my pipes are in or over that compartment, I don't have to do or wrap anything. It has to get down to around 18 degrees overnight before I have to do anything. The Auqahot takes care of under the bus down to about that temp. In a BMC, life is good
