You said to keep one or two of the 1500 Watt ceramic heaters running... meaning I have these or I should buy them? I am not aware of any heating system on my coach other than the heat pumps and the furnace.
Yes, in 15-35 degree weather without electric heaters to help you will go through that much propane (actually not that much because you said you had gone all spring and summer before this). Things to reduce propane use (assuming that you have electric) is to make sure the water heater and frig are on electric and then use electric skillet/hot plate for cooking and save the propane for heating. When it gets that cold we have an electric heater in the front and one in the bedroom - - during the day the furnace never comes on, at night we set the electric heaters on low and the furnace will come on at about 3:00 am or so. You do want it on then to warm the tanks in the bays. Also make sure you have the front windows covered - that's your biggest heat loss.
