Both require battery power/shore power to operate. The forced air requires that the furnace be left on which means you need LP and 12volt power. Tank heaters keep the tanks warm, but won't do much if anything for pipes, the furnace does.
Many people prefer not to tow with the furnace on (I don't have a problem with it as long as it is shut off prior to refueling the TV) Nothing is nicer than to step into a warm dry trailer on a miserable near freezing day for a quick nap when on the road.
FWIW I am in the process of rebuilding my trailer and am considering adding the 12volt heaters to my tanks as a backup measure.
