Acadianbob it is really nothing with your wiring as it is for your breakers.

For example if your wiring in the RV is hooked to a 30 amp breaker. The chances are that both the wire and outlets can handle lets just say 35 to 40 amp.

It's very similar to a idiot light in a vehicle. You can't really over load the circuit cause the breakers won't let you.. In this case the breaker pops.. You reset and lessen the load.

We use this heater, it works great cause it has a thermostat, it's pretty heavy duty, it has a fan, and it's best feature is that it has a switch for 750/1500 watts. We can put it on 750 during the day when we need more power in the RV and at night we can switch it to 1500 when it's colder and we aren't using near as many Amps. Even on 750 watts it makes a big difference.
