Traveling with your TT or 5'er in Winter

When on the road during the winter, how do you keep your waterlines from freezing during the day? Or is the motion of the unit enough to keep the lines from freezing?

I have 12 volt heaters for all 4 tanks. I assume I run the heaters while on the road but what about the water lines? Can you run the furnace while traveling? My tanks are in heated spaces so if you can run the furnace why the 12v tank heaters?

I'm back to the original question.

Tanks fill cavity so no room for warm air to circulate. Heaters are underneath tanks. They are only about the size of a sheet of paper but heat rises to tank. Furnace would also have to be on to keep trailer above freezing.
