We use the electric heaters or a small fireplace we occasionally put in the coach to save propane. Works great, never have to use the furnance unless it's really cold out.

Supplemental Interior Heat Superb, w/One Caveat

Hey, for the Ice Road Truckers among us -- and I know you're out there -- I gotta say DW and I learned a great neophyte lesson during last year's record-setting blizzard: when it's REALLY cold, bite the bullet and use coach heat. As the temperature drops below 10F or so, you might curtail the portable source all together.

Why? Because, at sub-freezing temps, every BTU your portable heat source puts out upstairs means the basement heat comes on less; it's easier to freeze pipes/pumps downstairs.

*Question: What's it mean when you hear <clip clop clip clop bang bang bang> outside when boondocking in rural Pennsylvania? Ans: There's been an Amish drive-by shooting!

I would like to say thanks to all who offered their suggestions. Cuttently running webasto for initital warm up then switching to the electric heat strips from the AC to sustain comfort. Seems to be working, however I am interested in the electric heater route as plan 'B'. Is it safe to use most small portable electric heaters in the motor home? Any do's or don'ts.
By the way....should anyone be interested in having work, or up grades [modifications] added to a Vogue, Prevost, or Newell coach, I have a great contact in Joplin Mo.
