Winter heat?

New to the RV world....have a new unit and it will be stored in unheated (a good part of the time) shop. Temps here get below 0 regularly. Do you guys put electric heaters in your units? Would an oil radiator type be better? The unit has been winterized properly. Or should I just put a dehumidifier in it? We are in the high desert in Central Oregon. Any thoughts from you experienced experts would be greatly appreciated.

One thing to keep in mind - Heated areas attract rodents.

If it's been winterized, and your storage is in the high desert of Oregon, I think the best thing would be to open closets and cabinets and leave it go to natural temperatures. We leave a roof vent cracked open a bit (with a vent cover) and open a window 1/4" (with a cut to length wood block) to allow air in and out. Heating it will only make it nice for critters, 4 and 6 legged ones.
