Winter storage heating?

Just wondering if anyone heats their RV during storage and what do you use for heating?

We use a couple of ceramic heaters in ours and in the bathroom I bought a TINY little ceramic heater "My Heat" from Target, 5 1/2 inch square, opened the cabinet door under the sink so heat can go down into the pass through basement storage area.

Those tiny little heaters will surprise you...they put out a LOT of heat for such a small appliance.

If the temps drop down into the low twenties/high teens we've been known to turn the fireplace on low.

Edited to note: our 5er sits in the back yard on shore power, so we're able to check on it often.

Why would you want to keep it heated? Winterize it, set it and forget it....

Last year the temp got down below the teens for several weeks. The counter top in our Solera cracked due to it. I'm not looking to heat it thoroughly but looking at possible ways keep the temp up enough to prevent it from getting worse.
