14-2 is borderline for a 1500 Watt heater, I would think 12-2 would have been better. 14-2 is only rated for 15 amps.

We were lucky that our Flagstaff came with a fireplace, and since it is already hooked into the microwave circuit, we could run it and a portable heater at the same time. But even with night temps in the 30's, the portable on low keeps the camper plenty warm.
The fireplace sure is nice in the morning though, sitting by the "fire" with a cup of java is a great way to start the morning.

It was a one beer job!
Dan you need to follow the RV Electrical Weekend Engineers procedures.

Beer #1 - Divising a plan for the electrical outlet.
Beer #2 - Doing the actual work.
Beer #3 - Admiring the work you accomplished.
Beer #4 - Optional if you really like looking at your work.
