Nice writeup, Oscar.

My approach was similar, but I pulled the heat off of the 20 amp microwave circuit. I think my heater draws something closer to 900W and I've never had trouble running it with the microwave.

My only problem is that the GFI doesn't work with the inverter, but we've discussed that before. I might have a bad GFI.

–cheers, Gordon

Yeah, that's another story. I have not had a problem since I swapped my bathroom GFI out.

And yes, the micro/convection was one of my options which I considered. Probably OK in micro, but not sure what mine uses in convection mode. Gotta be close to 2000, plus the heater would be very close to the 2400 max with no room to put in a bigger heater if the 400 is too small.

Thanks, I'm going to change one more thing and that is to add one of these....

This would be when parked in cold weather. When driving I'll probably have to get it as warm as possible so it can cool when we are moving.... (due to draft etc.)

Wow, that is awesome! Forest River needs to consult with you. At a price, of course.
I too installed a wet bay heater, using the Dirt Devil Outlet in the next bay, but it is nothing like what you did. Super and thanks for sharing.
