Heater for FR3 while stored outside for winter

Can anyone give advice on putting a heater of some type in my motorhome for the winter. We live in North Carolina, but it still gets down in the teens in the winter. Everything has been winterized and all power is off plus it will be covered with an all weather cover. All replies and advice are appreciated.

My FR3 is winterized.... I have it plugged in to 30A and I have a small ceramic heater on medium / low heat to move air.... and keep it from feeling damp inside... I'm sure it'd be ok without it, but why risk the paneling and wood having a problem if I don't have to...

We have dry "air" during the winter.

No need for heat if winterized.

I'm also in NC. I cover mine with adco cover leave plugged in for a couple weeks at a time. Winterized by blowing out still turn on small electric heater with cabinet doors open if it stays below freezing for more than a couple of days.

I don't know about North Carolina but here in South Alabama we have high humidity even in the winter. Right now it is 42 degrees with no rain in the forecast and the humidity is almost 70%
