We have one in the Babies room. He is 1 plays around it all the time. More expensive but worth every penny. That heater you are looking at is knock off of the original sunheat heater.

Worth every penny???
You paid $199 for a 750watt 2559 BTU, heater.
FYI you could have purchased a 1500 watt 5115 BTU electric space heater for as little as $25 and you would have had $174 left over... (to pay your electric bill ... or buy beer).

There is no comparison between the two. The sun heat heater is awesome. Besides I needed something safe for the kids room. I can brag it up until I'm blue in the face but you wont know until you experience it yourself.

We tried it yesterday, the MH was cold to start with. After 2 hours the mh was just starting to warm . Everything in the MH was cold like 15-20 degrees so I didn't expect it too heat it up but you couldn't see you breath.
I think after I get it up to upper 60's with the furnace I will use the heater, I think it will be able to maintain that temp. I had it on the highest setting.

IMO if it ever gets COLD were you are you will be blue all over using a 750 watt space heater for heat.
However.....it's your money and you can spend waste it however you want to.

OK--doubt if you are running a heater on a MSW inverter[using inverted battery power]--not for long anyway. The fact that you have "burnt-out" numerous heaters, at different campgrounds over the years suggests to me that you have a serious wiring issue with your rig. Swapping out to yet another 1500 watt heater is not the solution here. Need to check for weak breakers or loose connections--either the plug-in or the wires.

Yesterday I worked in the MH, it was 20 above and she was COLD. Turned on the furnace and set to 65. Waited 20 minutes then turned on the new space heater and the furnace only kicked on twice in the 4 hours we were in working. I had the space heater set too 72. I was working in a T-shirt and jeans.
I was Comfortable so I will keep it.
