I keep a small space heater in my trailer and it holds the temp in the mid to high 40s. This is certainly enough to keep things from freezing on the few days we get where it drops down that cold. All my lines and tanks are above the floor, and I do drain the water. Mostly I like that it keeps it from getting damp inside, so we don't get that musty smell in the spring. The electricity usage is minimal. We didn't even notice a jump in our bill compared to the years when we didn't do it.

Brad - we drain tanks (all 3) and blow out the water lines with 45-50 psi air on our 310. That and a little pink stuff in the drain traps is the total winterizing necessary unless you expect >4-5 days of temps <30. The use of small 'cube' electric heaters when doing work is adequate, and they can be left on for a week or so during your flooring project. Propane heat generates moisture - not good.
