Ceramic heater maximum amperage

What is the maximum amperage that should be used in a Roo? We have 2013 233s and have been thinking of getting a small ceramic heater for our first trip.

Thanks in advance.

I'm sure that someone will answer but in our 30A Puma we use two small ceramic heaters with no problems

the designers figure people will be using them in their units
should be no problem

don't think you will flip a breaker
unless
something else that draws heavy is also running on same circuit

Greetings,

Used our Roo this past weekend with overnight lows in the low 20s, maybe high teens one night. I run an electric heater that can be adjusted on both 750 and 1500 watt settings. I can run it full on the 750 setting. Maybe 1/2 to 3/4 on the 1500. Problem is, the interior outlets are on the same circuit. I plug the heater into the outlet next to the fridge. Unfortunately, the bed heaters are all on the same circuit so I've been known to trip a breaker every once and a while. Almost ran a separate cord from the post, but the furnace made up for the electric heater's lower setting. Really want to add a dedicated 15 amp breaker for heater use. Figured I'd put it next to the other one by the fridge. Only a foot or two of Romex needed. Hope it's doable. Hope this info helps some.
