Right after getting out new TT last year. We survived 16 degree temperatures with no problem for one night. With standard OEM battery. Sounds like your good to go.
Have fun

Battery Life Running Furnace

Forget it as a long term option.

Been there with two deep cycle golf cart batteries and can't cut it,

Instead invest in an Olympian catalytic heater. No battery needed, just propane source.

Installed a Wave 6 in my 35' Dutchman 3200 toy hauler, end of problem!

We ended up making it through the 2 nights we were there without an issue. I ran my generator during the day for a while to help recharge the batteries before the 2nd night.

The Wave 6 looks interesting. I used my Mr Buddy propane heater to help bring the inside up to temp quickly so all the furnace had to do was maintain the temp at night. Only had to run it for about 15 minutes. Put off tons of heat.
