Normally, if it draws too much current, a circuit breaker will trip. It's just a matter of resetting the breaker after turning something off i.e. changing the heat setting on the portable heater from high to low..

We picked up a cheap heater at the store. We plugged each one in at the store and bought the quietist one with a thermostat.

We also leave the propane heat on and set at 60. That way, if we do pop a circuit breaker orthe power goes out and we're not 'home,' the propane heat kicks on and the pet rabbit is kept comfy warm. I'm into backups.

We have used a small space heater (electric) and it works great. Have had it for over four years and no problems. Never leave it on when we are gone. Most of the time we stay in warm parts of the US (now in FL) but it got cold here the past two nights and we used it before going to bed and again in the morning. Saves on propane and works for short periods of cold.

We use a small electric heater in the front part of the motorhome. It works pretty good. There is a good LP heater that could be used to replace your LP furnace. WE all know that more heat goes outside than inside. The Wave heaters are 90+% effecient. They use very little LP. I have talked to people that use them and they are very satisfied. Just info.

We use a Mr. Heater in our motorhome when boondocking. Safe to use inside, runs on propane cylinders, good for about 6 hours. Pick it up and take in bathroom while showering. Can take it with us when visiting neighbors. Available from Camping World, etc.

Exactly what we picked up while boondocking a couple of weeks ago during hunting season. Saved the battery & made the inside of the trailer nice & cozy. Good little unit.
