We use a little black "stove" heater in our bedroom at home. During winter trips, we load it into the MH and use it for a little while mornings and evenings. Heated blanket in bedroom, so no need to run unattended overnight.

Fireplaces

I have had the electric fireplace...and on real cold nights (below 0*)it really didn't help much.. Had two oil filled heaters.. Ran them 24/7 safe, quiet and toasty...(only fired up the furnace for a few hrs when I first arrived to melt he ice)

Did I mention..2 - 150lbs Rotties help with heating the place up too...

Just installed mine. It's heating better and more than other heater I had.

Heaven help us if they ever catch on to how much electricity we're using in the summer to run our air conditioners. Rates will double!

The CG is $100 more for winter. Pretty common for us if we can find any open with full hook ups. We heat tape and insulate water hook ups. Sometimes leave the hard pipe behind for the long drains. This one is three ft behind camper.

Thinking about a way to store under the camper.

It would go under the tv in the 29 RE. Would rather have the permanent install unless better reason. All that is stored in vaccum stuff.

I installed mine under the tv in my 29rlbs. It was just a wood panel there with nothing behind it. Measure the size I needed and shopped HD online. Found the one I wanted and a few days later it showed up. Took me about 3 hours to install and have used it a lot since. Running right now at 32 degrees outside without the furnace on.

Sounds like what I did. Took the shelf out and put it above and ran for a day to make sure about any overheating issues. Then installed the shelf with plenty of room for vaccum stuff. It was around 14 with heavy wind on camper. The furnace kicked on a couple of times last time.

Really liking it so far.

And this is bs in my opinion!
you pay for 30 amp and 50 amp service so you should not pay more even if your within your service!

Your rate should be the same regardless if your using 12 amps or 29 amps.

I was told a few years ago "Wisconsin dells" I could not use my electric wh, I simply stated I pay for 30 amp service I'm going to use it !
They were not happy so I asked for a discount since I was only allowed about 20 amps of service.
They said then plug into the 20 amp service plug and then discounted my daily rate.
