Thank you
I have cheap heat already in my Georgeotown.
It is called a electric fireplace locate below TV

Love it

Sure take a long time to pay for itself in propane savings, but if it is a necessary alternative, I guess it would be ok.

We use an Eden Pure and run the furnace blower without the burner going to circulate the air in the ducts.

I appreciate all the responses / thoughts on this subject. I'm trying to find information from a fellow Wildcat owner who has this system installed or knows someone. This is not a cheap upgrade, nor do I want to damage my second home. The reason I'm considering this is for both safety reasons (running a space heater for long periods of time w/out anyone in the trailer) and not always having the ability to fill the propane tanks because of distance.

Again, thank you everyone for you help

As far as the camp ground is concerned, why would they care if you used electric heat? How is this different from all the AC units running in the summer?

I'm actually the one concerned, LOL. I use this trailer not only w/ my family, but I take it to job sites too. Sometimes the trailer is unoccupied for several days, but it has to have heat and propane is not always a option. We get free electricity, however I'm concerned of the fire potential of space heaters. I'm not sure if this makes a difference but the cheap heat would lessen the load on some of the breakers because the wired in a series and I believe it is on a stand alone breaker.
I'm looking for options. Anyone with thoughts or suggestions please reply. The cheap heat, which it is not, seemed like it would work out.

Thanks
Mike
