I can only report what I was told by the Forest River Warrantee department...seemed a little thin to me as well,,but the 8289 is not really a 4 season trailer, so the insulation is probably not all that great,,,,

I don't think FR even makes a 4 season trailer, You are correct on the tour of the plant they even stated that it's a 3 season trailer.

looks good I guess that is electric correct? How many BTU'S and AMP draw? If it's electric where did you plug it in at? Also what else is on that circuit.

plugged it in to the outlet that is there for the television,,,,,the heater is very economical only 400 watts instead of 12 or 1500 watts works great ! don't know what the BTU is, but it only draws 3.3 Amps,,,this model is good for a reular small room (8X10) should be more than enough for the camper bedroom !
