Just rember you will also need a new thermostat to control it . that is why I have not put one in yet . I like to run the ac fan sometime when the heat is on to move the warm air down and even out the temp inside the camper its all a mater of what works best for you furnace ,space heater, heat strips, these are different ways to keep you warm they all have positives and negatives. Research and see what will work best for your needs.

Use a good gauge cord that's not too long. We like the space heaters because they are "free" and much quieter than the furnace. We usually set the furnace at a lower temp than the space heaters in case they can't keep up but that alomst never happens.
X2.........as well space heaters do not produce the amount of condensation that a propane furnace will.

If you propane furnace is actually producing condensation, it is malfunctioning. The air intake/combustion chamber/exhaust is a sealed unit and totally isolated from the inside environment. You will get condensation inside but that is coming from cooking or breathing.

Great info! I'll stick to some space heaters for now. It shouldn't be too cold at the beach where we'd need to heaters running plus all the blankets etc we normally bring. This will be my 1st time camping at an rv park with my Roo so I'm trying to get things in order.

I didn't want to start another thread on a quick, newb question. Can I assume that a park advertising "full hookups" has 110vac service?

Yes, it is my understanding that the common "definition" of full hookups includes water, sewer and 110vac (30 amp, 50 amp or both) electrical service.

You can use a Mr Buddy Heater indoors? I bought one and it does not say that in the manual unless they sell two different types of Mr Buddy heaters

I've got another question about using the water heater on electricity this time. I suck at electrical stuff so here goes: If I want to use the water heater on electricity at this site, I need to make sure I'm on 120v shore power per the this thread: Suburban's electric switch and much more

Can I assume once again that a park with full hookups has this kind of power? or should i just stick to using my propane for the water heater? Man I'm a noob.
