Furnace

I have a new AS. I live in Virginia Beach. I am about to winterize my trailer, but was wondering if I kept the furnace on to keep the temp above freezing would I be creating unintended consequences (besides burning propane)? The trailer is connected to a 50 amp shore power outlet.

As long as you don't mind writing the checks for the LP, you should be able to just run the furnace.

I use a small plug in ceramic heater to keep the interior temps up for the rare short dips below freezing. My trailer stays plugged into AC at my home.

My tanks are empty and I'm not connected to city water. I guess it isn't such a big deal to winterize and if I want to use the trailer during the winter (we don't have a huge amount of freezing weather) I can just de-winterize and winterize when I'm done using it.

Depending on what you want to do, where you want to do it, and how long you plan to do it, you can simply use the trailer while winterized. That includes using the toilet.
