How well does your heater heat you toyhauler

On the trailer platform - how well does your furnace heat your toyhauler 30- 50degrees and what model do you have - I'm looking to replace mine to a bigger size in my Hyperlight because it's only a 19BTU and was wonderful how well the 30BTU heats in your toyhauler and what model it is

Mine is a Suburban 45,000 BTU it does good. I turn it on to heat it up quick then turn on the 2 electric heaters to keep it warm after that if we are hooked to shore power.
45,000 would be way to big of a furnace for your unit though. If your hooked to shore power use some ceramic electric space heaters.

Heats it alright. The main bedroom gets less heat than the galley area and the garage is pretty much non-existent since there is not vents that go in there. I will need to add a space heater for the colder weather camping times.

As some of the others do, we have used the gas to get it to heat and then used electric heaters. Last year, I skirted our 43 footer, and only had to use the electric fireplace and one space heater. It has worked out better than I ever dreamed.

We have a 2015 sandstorm 28.5. We also do a lot of boon docking. We have the 30000 btu heater and use a small 15000 btu electric as well. The bedroom slide was a little drafty last winter so I plan to try putting a noodle around the inside edge this winter. Seams like I read about that in a previous thread. If we are on shore power the electric is generally enough.

Probably a thread that is going to vary greatly as some like it cooler than others. If there is not frost inside when we wake up the DW is not happy

But seriously as others have mentioned there are no heat vents in our garage so an electric heater is needed for the rear our 30,000 BTU furnace keeps us comfortable but we keep our bricks & sticks house cool in the winter. Ours is a 36' Puma 356 QLB

Trying to talk the DW into turning on the furnace this weekend as it is to get below freezing..........
