Okay, I got my propane refilled today. In 14 days I used 15.6 gallons. At $4.2 a gallon, plus tax, that makes $5 a day... Hmmm... kind of expensive. I've moved to lowering my thermostat at night and heating with my electric heater in the evening before bed. I don't like to use the electric heater at night because it only heats the bedroom, and I threw a breaker when I tried to plug in two. Let's see what the next two weeks brings with my new plan.
Barbara, what you can do is plug in an extension cord to your 20 amp plug in at the pedestal. I bring the other end into the trailer at the bottom of the slide sweep on the side bottom corner. Then plug in your second heater so it won't be running off your breaker panel. I have seen people add a plug end in the wall and plug into that also, but bringing in an extension cord at the bottom of the sweep worked for me. As much as I need it. That gives me 3 heaters with the fireplace as one, and I don't trip my 30 amp at the panel or pedestal. I use two ceramic 1500 watt heaters. You should stay toasty warm. Plug one into your RV outlet and the other to the extension cord. Hope that helps...
