Alternative Heat??

Unread postby Zinger on Sun Aug 14, 2011 9:13 am

Anyone have any heat upgrades like the wave or others like that we use an electric heater when plugged in. I just dont like the trailer furnace loud and the temp swings can be uncomfortable let alone if you arent plugged in can kill batteries very quickly I would like to find something safe and affordable that doesnt consume power like the wave heater.
Have a good one

we use a basic electric heater. It's about 2' tall with a fan, temp setting, and it rotates back and fourth. Does a great job for early Spring and late Fall camping. We don't go camping in the winter, but I think it would work pretty good.
i don't like the RV furnace because of the noise, temp changes, and to me, there is a distinct smell from every RV furnace I have ever seen. Plus, we don't pay for electric at the campground.

I use a catalytic heater instead of the RV furnace. It's not as noisy and doesn't require any battery power whenever I use it, which is great since I'm not limited to campgrounds with an electric hookup.
