we have a more efficient heat source...i just didn't bring it up because it had nothing to do with the electrical question...there's a vent-less propane heater

the new 20 amp circuit not being used by the water heater can be used, if necessary for a space heater without the worry of kicking a breaker

Check to see if the rv panel has a bonded neutral bar.

i know the neutral bar and ground bar are not connected, they are separate...i believe that's what's meant by bonded, where the 2 are connected, they are not

how would a bonded neutral or not effect the auto operation of the t-stat ?

ideally we should have at least 70 amps but since we already have the #6 wire and 60 amp breaker, we'll live with the possibility of flipping a breaker


what do you guys think about the plan ?
You should be ok on total load. It is rare that everything is turned on at the same time.
