How do they work? They need 110v so plug it in.
Are they like a heated blanket? Somewhat, except you are on top vs under.
Can you preheat the bed? Yes, a good one-two hours before bedtime.
Do you use sheets and blankets even in cold weather camping? We use flannel sheets during cold weather camping. Regular sheets rest of the year.
Or do you use sleeping bags? Nope, a good heavy blanket will do.
Do they have a dial to raise and lower the temp? Yes, 1 through 6. Six being the highest (hottest) setting.
Even though some may find the heated mattress enough for colder nights, we usually supplement the heat with either a portable heater (1500 Watts) or the TT's furnace.
