Good point.
However the fact remains that "Cheap Heat", although it may be inexpensive to use, (and sometimes even FREE to use).... it is definitely NOT "cheap" to buy and install.
I happen to have wasted enough money on RV stuff nobody needs.
BTW no one is making you NOT buy one.

Since u indicated that your 5th wheel has heat pumps, cheap heat would be using them if electricity is included in your camp ground fees. Best of luck and happy RV'ing.

Google it.. (just put Cheep Heat RV System in the search box)

It is an electric heater add-on for your RV furnace,, Forget the wattage but the idea is to use the electric which the park provides as part of the rent instead of the propane you pay for... Of course if you are paying for electricity.. propane is the "Cheap Heat" system.. I have looked at it in the past and declined.
Home is where I park it!

I have got to go up North at least once or twice just so I can experience the cold.

"Cheap Heat" is manufactured and sold by RV Comfort Systems. www.rvcomfortsystems.com It is also available at Amazon. It uses a heating element inside the plenum to give the option of LP or electric heating with the flip of a switch. The new kit is designed so the DIY person can do the installation with basic tools and minimal electrical knowledge. All that is needed is the ability to read and fallow instructions. All wiring is color coded.
The biggest advantage to me is the even heating throughout the coach through the ductwork, including the holding tanks, and no space heaters to contend with.
