Which ceramic heater...

do you use, and what are your likes/dislikes. Looking to get one to supplement heat inside TH and save on some propane. Thanks!

Make sure you get one that has both high and low ( 1500W /750W) settings, a tip over switch and an adjustable temp range. Be careful some have an adjustable knob, but it only controls fan speed.

We have a small digital ceramic heater with thermostat that also oscillates. Does a great job and quiet.

We have 2 small Pelonis ceramic heaters we bought from Ace Hardware. They have the 2 power settings and tip turn off switch. We used them on the last trip, 7 days and they were on almost full time. If I had to do it again, I would pay more for the Digital Thermostat but other than that they are pretty good for $25.

I did a lot of research on this subject and in my opinion, the best heater made for RV's. I have two of them, they work great and best of all, made in Canada, not China.

Caframo Limited 9206CABBX True North Heater

600, 900 and 1500 watt electric space heater. Equipped with a 2 speed fan, 3 heat settings, a thermostat control and an anti-freeze setting. Durable powder coated finish. CSA Approved. Made in Canada. Five year warranty.

Dang, almost the perfect heater. If it had the Digital Thermostat, I would have picked one up.

We use a lasco unit we got from Amazon. Sits upright and heat can be directed were you want to have it blow. It us digital has a remote and will smoke us out of the trailer if set to high of a temp.

You could use a programmable outlet thermostat and they work great.
