I would think using a good quality electric space heater would be more economical than the heat strips. I use one and it helps save a lot of propane.

I found heat strips to be useless anything under 60 deg. and they dont put out enough heat. My newer class A doesnt have them and wont. electric space heater is the way to go. Almost any heater of your choice will work. Dont waste your money on the heat strips..

altho i agree that a space heater would do better,i already have the strips and find they work well in cool weather . we do use a space heater but i would like the option of using gas furnace,heat strips and space heater together . it would be a propane saving plan.
