No, electric heaters are fine. Water is the byproduct of the LP Gas combustion in the radiant heaters. My dad has an Olympian wall mount heater in his '85 Chieftain. I had borrowed it for elk camp one year and thought I would be able to save on power by using the radiant gas heater, wow what a mistake. Water was running down the walls and it soaked our bedding, what a mess. Never again and not in MY rig. I know some people swear by them but you have to keep windows or vents open so that the moisture can escape, just what I want to do when it's 39 degrees outside, open windows and vents. No thanks.

Looking @ the pics of the new Cardinal 5er elsewhere, I spotted something you should think of getting, tire covers. They'll reduce the damage that the UV rays will cause to the sidewalls.

Thanks again for all the great tips! I will start another thread on the results of our first week camping in the new trailer As for the roof vents being open, I only asked that as I heard a lot of people talk about combating humidity in the trailer, so I was not sure if that helped or was needed when using the AC or heating.
All the best,
Chuck

I use it all winter long. Put it away during the summer months.

At least once a month I have to empty the tray which holds about a pint of water.

It's a great product.

I use it year round even when we are in it. I have 3 of them now (41'). Bathroom/frontroom, kitchen and back room. Just empty them when they are full and keep the stuff in em. They do a good job pulling th mostiure out and they pull out the odors to!!
