what type of heater

howdy: I have a 2012 378ts and I put her to bed today, and I want to keep it heated inside a little bit this year I had moister last year in it and that's not good, what kind of electric heaters does everybody use. Aim not a big fan of leaving things plugged in when I go to bed but its time to bite the bullet and do it right. Any help would be great, I guess I can run a cord in threw a window or something. Pete

We are in Idaho and a lot of individuals use an quartz infer red heater, you can pick up them at lowes/home depot and few other places. Difference is its solid and can't tip over. Some have eden pure heaters and we have one of them bought 4 yrs ago and has served very well. They have a temp setting so it would only come on at a preset temp and shut off. another thing is they don't pull a lot of electricity. Hope this helps...

We've used the EdenPure for 5 yrs and really like it. Made a top for it and use it as a table.

My camper is plugged into it's own 30 amp service, so I simply plug in a small electric heater I bought some time ago at Lowe's or Wal-Mart. I have it set so the inside of the camper doesn't get below 45 or so.

Haven't had any issues with condensation.

My manual reccomends agains quartz or non circulatin heaters. A fan heater is best because the air circulation will help to avoid mold or mildew
