Heat in the toy hauler section

We plan to camp year round. My daughters sleep and play in the toy hauler area. We have no heat in the toy hauler area.
What is the safest, most economical way to provide a comfortable heat in their space?

Electric heat is the safest heat. Most companies have heaters with tip over sensors.

We use a small elect. heater for the toy hauler area and works great. You may also want to consider a dehumidifier while wintering in an RV, condensation builds quick.

Having thought about this myself..... Maybe "T" into one of the current furnace vents and run another vent in the garage area? Or maybe cutting a hole in the separating wall and installing a vent to allow air to pass through? Not sure but I would say that if the garage was going to be a bedroom then maybe insulating the bottom would help with hot/cold days.

Heat in TH section

I just tested my heater in my TH. There is a vent hole near my washer/dryer setup that blows heat into my TH section. The spec sheet didn't speak of it, so I guess it was added on. I will still purchase a ceramic heater to back it up.
