Fireplace is a nice idea, but our trailer isn't big enough. We don't have slideouts. The only place I could even think of where one coulde go would under the stove top where the actual STOVE would go had we opted for that extra.

I guess you didn't read my follow-up post to OP's response.

Yup, sure did, nothing to do with you. Just adding my 2 cents with you. I was intrigued by it's reference to "cheap". I will try not agree with you in the future ;-)

we installed one of these in our ac unit that turns it into a decent electric heater. couldn't be any simpler to install. it's not as warm of heat as the propane, but does the job. just takes longer to get to the temp you want. I figured it was cheap enough there was nothing to loose, and would be better to use the park electricity than propane.

I just did a little checking and found out this heating element just plugs into a plug inside the Coleman 15,000 BTU AC. Thanks for the idea.

I just found the installation for it on page 8 and 9 how to do it. If anyone wants the pdf document just email me. It looks like you just attach it in front of the AC coil and just plug in. The Thermostat controls are a little tricky but a easy MOD.

We use a small oil filled heater and just keep the ac fan on to circulate. Works good and safe around the kids....

Can't remember the exact dimensions, but I'm guessing 6-8".
The height was an exact fit for the space somewher around 22-24". The fit is snug from top to bottom. I have no fasteners to keep in in place. The width allowed me enough space toaccess the video and cable outlets as well as the electrical outlet.

Check out RV on demand water heaters. They now come in a size that will replace your 6 gal. heater.
