Extra outlet in garage

Since the garage doesn't have a furnace duct (like most TH's), I need to use an electric heater. Problem is that there is just a single 15 Amp circuit for virtually all of the electric outlets in the trailer ( my last trailer at least had 2 circuits for the outlets). Anyway, using a single heater means nothing else can be used at the same time.

So for the garage I decided to utilize the 2nd A/C circuit to provided a dedicated outlet for an electric heater (since I don't need the A/C in the winter). Anyway, I installed a shallow metal junction box inside the return air chamber to tap into the power. Used surface mount raceway to run #12 gauge romex across the roof and down the wall to a surface mount outlet.

Now since there is an unused slot in the breaker box, I need to look at adding another circuit and one or two outlets in the kitchen cabinet for another heater option.
