Unfortunately that is not an option for us because of layout and limited space in our rig, otherwise that is the best solution.  As I mentioned before, the folks at Battle Born said when I posed the problem and question to them, all that is really needed is to insulate the box and place an incandescent lamp.  I have insulated the box and have a weather station with a remote sensor in the battery box and in my basement/storage area where the tanks are located.  So far, although I have not been faced with freezing temperatures, the temp in the box has been very close to that of the basement area, so I suspect because the battery box is surrounded on 2-sides by a heated space that may have a positive effect.  I will be putting all this to the test in April when we leave Phoenix for the Black Hills of S.D. where I anticipate temps at or below the freezing mark.  Before we leave I will install an incandescent lamp, so will see and will be sure to report back how it all works out.
