    Could always chuck a quilt over your gear for a bit more insulation.
    I think that keeping the frost off won't be you're main prob, I've found if the waters very cold when you begin, it can freeze up in use, if you can get it to 10 degrees plus, you'll usually be ok. I think jeff worked out that a barrel loses about 1 degree an hour, will obviously depend on how evil it is outside and a tank will be different cos of the bulk amount

    Are you going to connect it to a separate battery? Do you think you will get a full night use from it? I have purchased a water proof one (same size as yours heater), but need an inverter like yours. What type of inverter did you purchase?

    Thanks
