Great feedback everyone. DW had suggested using an old oil radiant heater but I don't like the weight and size and the fact that it has something in it that could potentially leak. I'm going shopping for a ceramic heater. :-)

I have the same heater for my coach. Used it quite a bit the last two trips out and it works incredibly well! It heats the entire (32') coach with no problem. Excellent heater! I recommend it too!

We like our electric fireplace. Heats the forward part of the MH nicely, doesn't do much for the bedroom. In the bedroom we have a heated mattress pad if it gets cool enough to need it.

Like a lot of people here I use two cube ceramic heaters, the only difference is that I also use these to control the temperature, rather than using the very inaccurate heater thermostat, Lux WIN100 Heating & Cooling Programmable Outlet Thermostat. You set the heater on its max setting and then plug the heater into the thermostat. They work great and are programmable so they can automatically set the temperature back at night and then turn on early in the morning to warm everything up. I got them at Amazon.

I have a 1500/750 watt Coil ribbon Holmes safe touch electric heater that's about the size of a box of cereal. I replaced the original factory 2 prong cord with a 3 pronged heavy appliance cord as the original cord got hot enough to start melting the plastic around the plug head if run for an extended period of time on the 1500 watt setting.

The unit has blower speed settings and a thermostat, it rarely gets used anymore, usually only when it gets really cold as supplemental heat.
