I'm not familiar with a Holiday Rambler basement heater, mine is heated by a duct from furnace. If I want more heat, a 100 w lightbulb keeps things liquid. What brand, model of heater are you looking for?

Not sure...

I'm not sure of the brand, as it is missing in my rig... the wiring is there & the bracket is there, but someone else must have needed it before we bought our used rig...

Nike,
What you are looking for is "Cargo Heat Model 3000RV" heater. They are no longer being made. I would recommend searching for 12v ceramic heater on the internet for a suitable replacement. Another recommendation would be to search the Monaco owner's forum for "bay heater". You'll find lots of info on wiring, repairing, testing and some available replacement options. As an example, Camping World has one that might work for you. Good Luck!

The heater is a cerermic one and resides in the water/black water dump comparment, driver side bay. It is a size of a small shelve speaker, if it is not there than your coach does not have one.

Our furnace is non-functional. It ate LP like CRAZY when it worked. Survived down to 16 degrees last winter with (2) 75W bulbs in those aluminum clip-on lights in water hold. Only needed one down to about 25 degrees. Never got below 40 degrees on the remote thermometer I kept down there.

Remember, you can't buy 100's anymore.

The basement heaters only work once the ambient temperature in the compartment reaches a certain temp, I believe my owners manual says 34F. You have to switch the system on at the main power panel. Your switch should be illuminated showing that the system has power. Due to its draw once the heater is cycling on and off it is recommended that you are plugged into 50amp shore power.
