Welcome to the forum
The switch for the tank heaters may be lit when on. If they arenít lit then itís like a light switch, up is on and down is off. There is no ď controlĒ they are either ON or OFF.

Are you sure they are heated? Or you have a heated underbelly, as in they blow some furnace air in there.

The switch, or switches shouldn't be hidden.

If you have heated tanks the switch(s) would be on the monitor panel, labeled. Not all trailers have heated tanks. As stated above you may have a ďheated underbellyĒ that uses the trailers furnace and ducting to warm the underbelly.

Because the salesman may have told you have heated tanks DOES NOT necessarily mean you do. I think typically the tank heaters are an option that most dealers don't order on spec RVs. I'm guessing that if the switches aren't glaringly obvious on your switch panel you probably have heated underbelly as others have stated not tank heaters.
The thing to remember about any salesperson selling anything is usually if their lips are moving they're blowing smoke up your dress. Most have NO clue or care about the workings of whatever they're selling, they're there to sell as much as you're willing to buy & tell you whatever it takes to do so.

From what I looked at on the Keystone site it lists heated pads on the waste tanks. They make it sound like standard equipment. But then again, we all know their reputation for "accuracy".

Looking at the Keystone website for your trailer, if you have the Climate Guard option package it shows to include a heated tank package. If that is the case, and you have that package, I've never seen a trailer that did not have the switches in the monitor panel...labeled.
