Furnace & Bay heat

Our MH is stored inside an unheated building. Living in the South, we don't normally have extended periods of extreme cold. I keep a small quartz heater in th MH set on 45 degrees to protect the interior. What are the pros and cons of running the LP furnace on extreme days/nights to heat the bay area?

If you're sure the furnace has ducts to the bays that contain water pipes then I would leave it on set to about 50 degrees!

I set my AquaHot as low as it will go, 45 and that works fine. I have a remote thermometer with one sender in the wet bay so I can monitor it since the rig is right beside the house.
