A skirt would certainly help but you will have to make it, carry it, and install it with snaps all around the coach. I wouldn’t bother with a heater within it. The floor will be warm enough.
Bottom line is you need to come up with your own procedures that work for you. I have procedures that work for me. Over time you will learn what you can and cannot get away with. You have a nice winter coming up. In the spring tells us what you did. What you got away with. A day with a high of 50F will be different than a day that doesn’t get above 30F even though both days had a low of 25F.
For example I learned that the propane refrigerator needs to be on to keep the waterline to the sink that passes behind it open.
I have had lines fail to flow, I have had P-traps that failed to drain. I have never split a pipe, yet.
I can tell you a nice comfortable shower at 13F sure does mess up the inside of a windshield. Don’t plan on driving anywhere soon.
