Build a rocket mass heater outside, and channel the output tunnel UNDER your mobile home. Use extra masonry or mass where the water is. Burning 1 hour a day would likely keep your water tank OK, and could raise temps for your structure, while keeping flame and smoke outside your dwelling.

That is a good book, it was not the information source I was talking about, the source I was talking about I think has disbanded now. It was a team of 50 scientist's from all over the world with a variety of degrees in various fields They did research for 5 years around the world from the north and south poles to the Equator and many other places around the world The evidence they gathered showed our history has a cycle of hot and cold with a pattern of sorts. What they discovered was we showed to be going back into a mini ice age. That is the basics. I don't think I saved the name of the project, it was completed around 2011 or 2012 I think much of there research was over looked because of the 2012 crap going on. I will see IF I still have any of it or the name.

Most of those in Oregon are in the Portland area due to ice-laden trees and power lines.

Portland news reports over 200 MILES of power lines are out, and many, many blown transformers.
They have over 2,000 utility workers working round the clock.
Said they have crews that have come in from several neighboring states to help.

Are your heaters part of a blower heating system? IF SO can you tie in the heat duct to pass along your water tank and then build a insulated cover around the tank so the hot air passes thru the insulation and along side the water tank.

Cold here too, I think low of 7 tonight and we're supposed to get 6-10 inches of snow, we already have about a foot on the ground from the constant snow fall over the last week. Of course my furnace isn't working right, keeps blowing cold air then warm air then cold air so it's about 65 degrees in here. Sounds warm right? It's not, everybody is cold. Furnace guy comes tomorrow.
And the Lord spake, saying, "First shalt thou take out the Holy Pin. Then, shalt thou count to three. No more. No less. Three shalt be the number thou shalt count, and the number of the counting shall be three. Four shalt thou not count, nor either count thou two, excepting that thou then proceed to three. Five is right out. Once the number three, being the third number, be reached, then, lobbest thou thy Holy Hand Grenade of Antioch towards thy foe, who, being naughty in My sight, shall snuff it."
