so far I have decided this type of heater is basically a waste of money. a hand held hair dryer puts out more heat than any of these types of temporary heaters. this particular one was as big of a failure as any other brand I have tried, unfortunately. I don't have a photo. I gave it to my friend down the street to see if he could make it work. 454909

Great products, the heater is a great solution for a failed heater core in a pinch. The insulated vents inserts is perfect for insulation in winter, sun shade in winter. Thank you! 322613

I bought this heater because a Teardrop Trailer I rented had one and I wanted one for myself. It is easy to use, warms up the cabin area nicely and quickly, and doesn't blow the fuses. I tucked it in an empty cubbyhole where I wouldn't knock it onto the bedding and start a fire, then rotated it on its foot so it pointed down toward me. There is a note on the tag to turn it off for 5 minutes after running it for 20 minutes, which I did. It is probably not a good idea to go to sleep with this on unless using a timer of some sort. etrailer shipped it immediately and packaged it well. 453532

  • Recommended 12V Heater for Motorhome
  • For your 12V RV heater replacement, I recommend the Rampage Radiant Backseat Heater - 300 Watt - 12 Volt # RA3501. This heater has and integrated swivel mount and is 8 inches tall x 7 inches wide x 6 inches deep. I've attached a video to assist. Another even more portable option is the Performance Tool 12-Volt Heater and Defroster # PTW5009. This unit plugs into a 12V aux power port and has an integrated 15 amp fuse.

  • Installing DC Power And Power Inverter To Cargo Trailer
  • For DC electricity, I can help you out. You can run a 10 gauge wire like # 10-1-1 sold by the foot from a 6-way or 7-way connection from the 12V to a deep cycle 12V battery and then run the battery to a ground on the trailer. You can use a solenoid like # TR118665 in your tow vehicle if you want to ensure you don't drain the vehicle battery when your truck isn't running. This will isolate the deep cycle 12V trailer battery. To charge your battery, you can use a CTEK D250S DUAL Universal...

  • Can This Unit Be Installed With An Auxiliary Switch To Function When Truck Is Off?
  • The Performance Tool 12-Volt Heater and Defroster can be left on between power cycles with an auxiliary switch if you desire. It will draw about 13 amps at 12 volts which equals out to about 156 watts, so you will want to take that into consideration for your application. I don't recommend leaving it on for long periods of time as it will eventually drain your vehicle battery and I do recommend having a fuse in line of your system to protect your vehicle and the unit itself.
