We are like you we don't leave any heaters on when sleeping as we would rather be on the cold side when sleeping, but it is great to warm up the MH before getting in bed, and also charges up your batteries in the process.
Well...everyone is surely different. We boondocked a lot...with solar....so didn't have to use the generator for anything. We tend to like the quiet. When we boondock we pick a spot that we don't need the air conditioning.
