Basement heating

Iím currently purchasing a 2003 National Tradewinds series M-395le RV. I went to look at it yesterday and everything checks out however im wondering how I will heat the basement. I plan on living in the RV permanently and living in Indiana temperatures get very cold, the average temperature in the winter is about 20degrees F however itís been known to be -20 here before. The rig has been garage kept so the previous owners didnít really have to worry about this issue. Iím trying to figure out my options as to how I can heat the basement. I know propane is an option however it can get very pricey and didnít know if there was anything more cost efficient. If you have been in my situation or maybe just have a suggestion I would really appreciate it!

On our 2003 Tradewinds the front heating unit has three heating lines that come off it. One of them feeds into the basement area of our RV where the water lines are.

Hope that helps.

There are videos on youtube about cold weather camping and ways to help keep you warm in a RV.

In my 2000 Tradewinds the rear furnace has a vent into the waste tank area and the front furnace blows toward the water area. The first winter we tried suplementing the furnaces with electric heaters in the cabin area.Since the furnaces were not pushing heat below the tanks got chilly.
