Dometic Brisk Air II Heat Strip Add

The FR guys went out of their way to build a trailer for me. I had the factory install a 50 amp service, 2nd AC, power control center, and a 5500 Onan. That being said, utilizing the power control center, I have no problems running both ACs, water heater, and anything else on a 30 amp service. Usually the power control center kicks off the electric water heater for a couple seconds when the second AC kicks in. After it gets up and running the WH kicks back in. Here's a pic of the power control center aka power management system. Click image for larger version

We live in Colorado and went through 40# of lp in our first two trips without the heatstrip. After that install, the furnace hasn't been used since. In FL, your furnace should never be needed again.
