Main cabin stayed very warm but the furnace ( set on 60 ) ran all night with out shutting off. I had roof vents slightly opened for ventilation. Also is there a way to direct more heat out of the duct in the front of the camper instead of 95 % coming out of the duct at the furnace.
Also had mattress condensation the first evening ( without gizmos on )
as Wiscampsin suggested, using Reflectix in colder weather will do a lot in retaining heat. the PUGs only cover the vinylized top. the sides are not covered and they are just plain canvas, so heat will leak through the sides much easier than the top. though i'm not sure with your 238, since i'm more familiar with Roo/Shamrock.
same goes for the heat. our Roo has a furnace duct that we can direct towards the front bunk and the rear bunk. don't know how your Palo has it set up. pics would help, cause there aren't a lot of 238's out there, though it's a great floorplan.
