Question about tank heaters

We use our Voltage toy hauler [by Dutchman] for hunting & fishing, mostly off road. Has any one used the tank heaters in very cold weather and if you have do they run your battery down quickly or are you supposed to use them only with the generator running.

The tank, waterline, elbow, hose heaters we've used have all been 120V.
The amount of wattage required would not be conducive to inverted / battery use alone.
Temperature and duration in the field would be a factor for you.
Many four-season trailers have enclosed insulated underbellies with ducting provided by the propane furnace (12V. blower). We've been in below zero conditions before without tanks or anything else being effected. Every coach is different. YMMV.

Happy motoring
