We camped in the X23B a few times when the temps got down to the upper 20's(F), maybe 7 nights total. Used an electric oscillating heater (1500w IIRC). I would set the heater at 45 deg or so and the furnace at 40-ish (analog thermo). We slept under a blanket and a nice down comforter and were very comfortable. Hitting the head in the night was "hurried" but manageable. I enjoy the cool weather camping and sleep better under those conditions. No probs with the breakers.
Just retired and were talking about a Jan/Feb trip along the East Gulf coast or West to the AZ area.

Thanks for all the tips! I'm definitely going to look into a heated blanket as well. I had set the ceramic heater to a specific temp so maybe it was just set too high and used too many watts. So I'll try clicking it down some degrees.

We try to avoid the propane simply because it's so loud.

I go back country in Minnesota (cold nights)
My propane runs like a champ on battery power with solar recharge the next day
never had a problem to date. Coldest night was 45F
i was nothing but impressed by the performance of the stock forced air heat?
I was out for a week by myself and might have used one can of gas
