EdenPure for our 5er. If it got really cold I don't know how it would do but I've used it down around freezing with good results.

I placed a 1500 eden pure in our 34' 5er to see how it would do on its own with out the furnace. It got down to 28-29deg f. outside one night and in the morning it was 55 deg in the trailer. It helps a lot though on chilly days!

Last year we used a 1500 watt heater in the living room and a oil filled heater in the bedroom. Did not use the propane furnace at all. The two heaters kept the temp. in the TT at 70 even when the outside temp. went below freezing. We were camping in BC and had a lot of rain so we also used a dehumidifier. The year before we were always cold when running the gas furnace and one electric heater. Did not realize that the dampness in the TT was making us feel cold. We were on meters and had to pay for hydro. It was costing us $100 per month less heating the TT with electric heater and not having the gas furnace on.

we just camped last weekend where it got down to 18 degrees overnight, we carried our Life Smart IR Heater with us which kept the trailer around 55-60 on its own which is still too cold for my wife so we also ran a small "bathroom" style heater on the other end of the trailer, which i quickly found out needed to be ran on a seperate circuit.

right before bed or every few hours i would crank up the trailer propane furnace for about 15 minutes so the electric ones didnt have to work so hard to keep my wife warm

the propane furnace will run you out it gets so hot, so if all else fails i know its there!
