Yep electric and it uses about as much juice as your toaster.

Actually about 25% more than the average toaster.
If you really want to know, a 1500 watt electric heater will consume 12.5 amps of electricity for every second it is on on high setting. For a typical 30 amp service post that is more than 1/3 of the available power.

Hey donn, We enjoy our fireplace in the morning to take the chill off and it's nice to think I'm burning more electricity toasting my Bagel even if it's not right.

thanks for all the info. as you can tell we are new to the camping. we had a 28 ft trailer 30 years ago.
is it safe to say, if the fireplace will use 1/3 of the power on a 30 amp post. then a 2011, 378 would need a 50 amp post, if set up for awhile. is their a guage for the set up on power.
thanks for all the help.
cile and john
