1. Is there any chance AERC will ever allow the "no generators after 10:00pm rule" to slide? Many of us do not have finished living quarters (some don't even have insulation) in our trailers and the only relatively SAFE heat is electrical heat.

You're mistaken about that .. see below.

2. How do trailers with factory living quarters provide safe heat during the night?

Factory or conversion, the common method of providing heat is a forced-air propane furnace, run on the 12V battery. Other than the size and battery power, it's the same basic design as the furnaces in many houses. The propane burns using air from outside and the exhaust is vented outside, and a heat exchanger heats the inside air. No fumes or carbon monoxide get into the trailer at all.

You don't need finished living quarters to install one of these into a trailer's tackroom, although obviously it wouldn't do much good in an open stock trailer.
