Default RV Heat

What is everyone using to maintain heat in your RV? I'm using an oil filled radiator. I'm also using a wireless temp sender in the camper. I can monitor the camper temp from the house to maintain above freezing temps.

I use a forced air fan disk heater. It has a t-stat set at 50*. I open every interior door and drawer and use a small clamp-on fan to circulate air. Also drop Rv anti-freeze in the p-traps. Never have had a problem.

Anti Freeze in the pee traps. What a great idea.
I also use an oil filled heater, and open all the drawers and sink areas.

I just use the regular on board heater with the thermostat set as low as it will go.

I drain all water lines and put in the dri-z-air stuff in about 4 of those things along with rv anti freeze in all the traps plus a lil in the toilet. I leave no heat on at all in mine just check on it once a week or so. I also start and run my generator for about a half hour once or twice a month just to keep everything up and running. I also leave mine plugged in at all times.
