The oil heater I am talking about is electric....
It fits in the right rear water bay during transit, the same space that is swapped out for a fan for summer use. This bay also holds the tabletop gas grill.


(Amazon) DeLonghi TRN0812T Portable Oil-Filled Radiator with Programmable Timer

(Sams) Lasko Max Performance Pivoting Utility Fan

Too much info?

My guess is there's no real need. If you were to fill the black tank up, leaving no room for expansion, and then park in freezing conditions for a couple of days, you would most likely have some problems. But using the grey and black tanks a few times on the way should be fine.

No, they are plugged into a 120v outlet and run from shore power or a generator. They are nice because they do not have a fan (think noise).
