2005 BusQDP Is basement heated?

2005 Allegro Bus 40QDP
I am wondering how I find out if the water tanks etc are in storage bays that are heated when furnaces are on and if so are they heated by the rear furnace or both?

Rear hot air blower sends heat and air into the wet bay. If for some reason the rear heater does not work and you can still run the blower on the unit, it too will deliver air heated inside the RV to the compartment. If you have a concern, get a remote temp sensor from Wal Mart (about $10) and you can monitor the temp real time

I have a 2005 bus. Only two slide instead of 4 but I believe the wet bay and everything is in the same place. The rear furnace blows into the wet bay area which has the tanks, the water pump, etc. I bought an atomic clock with indoor outdoor temp readings and put the outdoor sensing unit in the wet bay and constantly monitor the temp in there. I spent the winter last winter in Bartlesville, Ok and saw several below zero days with 6 below being the coldest. We were heating with electric heaters in order to not have to go get propane every week. I bought the smallest electric heater with a manual thermostat ( not digital) I could find at walmart. It was a small cube and was only 750 watts. I put that in the wet bay and ran an extension cord to the shore power 115 vac receptacle in with the breakers. I put this heater thermostat pretty well close to the lowest setting and kept it 50 degrees in there all winter. I moved the bus once to go get propane and put this heater in storage while i was moving. When i hooked it back up i hit the thermostat while i was putting it in place. I noticed later that evening the temp was 115 degrees in the wet bay area. That small electric heater had more than enough power to heat that area up like I said in -6 degrees.
