My question is, if we keep the inside of the trailer around 60 degrees 24/7 will the underneath tanks freeze up? I was planning on using a space heater and not the propane furnace.
I live on Camano Island and own a 2016 PT TracerAir 255, that I store at home.
Your TT is a 3 season trailer at best. Your Tracer should have an enclosed underbelly that is heated by the furnace. I use a oil filled radiator type heater inside. I also drain the tanks, blow out the water lines and put RV antifreeze in the P-traps.
If someone was to stay in it, in below freezing weather, they won't have running water available because I don't want to do the job all over again. I'd put bottles of water in the fridge and a bucket of water inside for the toilet.
If we ever did get a hard freeze, then I'd set the furnace thermostat to come on to heat the underbelly.
