Ok, it's been a couple of months (or 3) instead of a couple of weeks like I said.  Procrastination is the bane of any glasshopper.  After about a quart of water dripped down into my sons birthday cake and ruined his cake the day BEFORE his birthday, that was the last straw.  Glasshopper overcame the urges of procrastination at that point. 

 

At any rate,  here's some pics of the rigged up drain heater.  I filed the ends of the wires to take off the sharp edges so that they would slide on down the drain hole.  I made the length like around 10 inches and put two wires down at opposite sides.  I also made some wire coils for the collection tray so that water wouldn't freeze in the collection tray.

 

It's been around two weeks and so far so good.  No water in the fresh food section yet.
