Will my tanks freeze?

My last campout of the year will begin tomorrow for shotgun season here in Illinois. The low tomorrow night is 13 degrees with very little wind. I have a Coachman 360IBL. They advertise this as a 4 season camper. It has an enclosed and heated underbelly, tank valves in the enclosed part, etc. I have 2 full propane tanks, plus the electric fireplace heater. Currently the camper is fully winterized. I plan to de-winterize it (except the outdoor shower) and fill the water tank.

Should I be concerned about the tanks freezing? I know the furnace works well.

I think you should be good. Just have supplies to re-winterize when done.

Been there done that. You'll be ok, just "SUPLEMENT" with the space heater. The water filter and pump area will need the furnance heat if you don't put a light bulb next to it.

use the furnace more than the space heater so enough heat gets in basement and underbelly area. Space heater keeps you warm, not the pipes
