If I know it is going to get below freezing here in Wyoming and I have water in my system, I have a $20 dollar Wally World electric heater that I set at 60 degrees and let it run all night. I have my camper plugged into my 30 amp outlet at my house and then I open up my access door inside to my water tank so air circulates throughout my camper. I also have a non-LED light in my drain bay and sometimes I will turn it on all night because it does put off just enough heat to keep it warm enough to not freeze. I will typically not run my camper heater in this scenario.

When I first got my camper I was worried about those times during late fall and early spring where it warms up above freezing during the day and then dips below freezing at night. I asked my camper dealer about it and what I stated above is what he told me to do.
