Get the Duraflame electric stove heater (Under $100 at Oceanstate). You get the electric heat with the fake fire glow. And, when the weather turns nice, you take the heater out. Will be using it for our icebreaker trip in April. PS just purchased a portable dehumidifier. Cold camping and/or rain really condenses on the canvas!! Previous htt had a separate a/c, not on the same thermostat. You could run the a/c with heat to aid in drying the camper out.

Many people recommend running an extension cord from the pole to the camper for the electric heater. I have not tried this.

That's the way I do it. If heat is going to be required I prefer to use free electric rather than my propane if I can avoid it. I fish a heater cord out at the bottom of the slide seal just before putting it fully out, then a 12AWG extension cord to a separately breakered 15 amp outlet on the pole. Then I don't have to worry that the heater going full blast at 1500W is going to either trip a circuit when something else is on (water heater, microwave, coffee maker, toaster, etc) or that I'll exceed the 30 amp service.

Shortly, I'll install a 125V power inlet to replace the fishing. Only need to cut a 2 inch hole in the side of a slide.
