Not if you make sure you turn one of them off. Some thing else to think about. Use an electric heater and keep the furnace set around 60 in case the electric heater can't keep up. If you are paying for electric in a park why not use it?

Other than the chance you might run both at the same time, none what so ever.

I have been using a small electric heater also. I only pay for the electric I use (not in a park). Electricity is not as expensive here (coastal Oregon) as other parts of the country but I still think there is savings when using propane.
