If your batteries are fully charged they will power the heater for a while. How long depends on many variables.

I would not risk my pups for very long w/o heat.

Turn on the auto start for the geny just to be safe. When the batteries get low the gen will start to recharge them and run the furnace.

Another strategy could be to buy a portable propane heater (like a Mr.Heater Buddy) to use along with the furnace and set the trailer thermostat to maybe, 60*. If the portable unit could not keep the temp above 60*, the trailer furnace would cycle on and off to keep it from getting too cold.

When it's in the 50s I put a blanket over my dog at night and it's a Rottweiler, she'll stay like that all night. How about sweaters for your dogs.
