x2...When spring/fall camping in Michigan, if we have a "cool" night and don't want to run the furnace, we often run only a ceramic heater, on low, just to take the sting out of the air.

We use the Eden Pure exclusively, it doesn't get hot to touch and is remote controlled. On real cold nights in FL, I just move it over to the furnace intake and turn the blower on the furnace (burner not on) and let the furnace blower circulate the warm air throughout the 5er and basement.

Thanks for that tip, OC. That is a much better approach I'd not thought of for balancing things out in the TT.

You do have to put a separate switch on the furnace blower to make it run without the burner being on.

Yep, makes perfect sense. I should have thought of that, but then I'd be putting you out of a job.

I'm sorry OC, but did you just say "real cold nights in FL?"

I certainly did, on more than one occasion it has gotten down in the mid-lower 20's which is "real cold" for FL. We lived in northern IL where it stayed for days in the 0 to below 0 where we lived in an 8'x32' house trailer in Moline, IL

Just pokin' fun at ya... Most people don't relate "real cold" with Florida, but you are correct, it has it's moments of cold and real cold weather.

You might want to Make Sure that you Mount that Little Buddy closer to the Floor than your Sleeping Bunks.

Approved for indoor/outdoor use; clean-burning; nearly 100-percent efficient
Auto shut-off if tipped over, if pilot light goes out, or if detects low oxygen levels
Low Oxygen Levels are just a "Proxy" (and a rather poor one) for Carbon-Monoxide and Carbon Dioxide Sensors. Both of those Deadly Poisons produced by your Propane Burning Heater are Heavier than Air AND can reach Dangerous or even Deadly Levels while Oxygen Levels are still "almost Healthy".
This is one of the reasons that Carbon Monoxide / Propane Sensors are Mounted as Low as Possible to the Floorboards.
