Electric and gas heat together?

When I wintered over in the Colorado mountains, worst week -20F nights and 0F days, the electric heat was set for ~65F and the gas furnace set for ~63F. When the electric heat couldn't keep up, the gas furnace would come on. All plumbing except tanks (equipped with tank heaters), water in and dirty water out in the living space; trailer had a skirt with no heat in skirted part. Nothing froze, didn't use a lot of gas.

Well the system of electric heater lower than the furnace is working. We had one night of maybe 18 and all is well. Thanks for all the tips.
