Anyone tried these?

This looks like it might be useful on those damp or chilly evenings.

350 watts is not a lot of heat!

I agree that that unit will not be putting out a bunch of heat! It could do a nice job in a bedroom area, with the closets closed. Or maybe even the bedroom bathroom area, with again a door closed to the front of the coach. One major concern I would want to really understand, is the quality of the unit. That closed to a wall, has added ramifications for safety.

We've personally went with a unit that came highly recommended on this and the Escapees board. The Vornado unit below, does a good job in temps down into the mid to high 30's, on keeping our coach warm. in moderate temperatures, say 45-55, we can set it on the low setting and leave it on overnight to keep the 40' 2 slide coach comfortable for sleeping. (We set it on the dining table, and clear everything out of its path!)

That being said, my wife and I are considering going with the below combo Dyson. It's pricey, but one unit covers three functions: 1) Heater; 2) Fan; 3) Room air filtration. It is a bit bigger then any of the individual units that covers these duties. But the 3 in 1 would end up taking less overall space then the three individual units. And we have a place in our closet that we can carry it without a problem. Have not yet decided to do so, but sure thinking about it.

No right or wrong on these kinds of equipment, well - except for I recommend buying as good of quality as you can...

Best to all,
Smitty

about 3 amps 120vac, or 30+ DC amps if powering off your inverter....as a rough order of magnitude.

1/4th to 1/3rd of a hair dryer....

Are you aware that you can buy over 30 ordinary 1500 watt electric space heaters for the price of one of those ...every one of which will provide as much heat as one Dyson Pure HOT Cool Link?

We use a Vornado in our house. Rugged, simple, quiet and reliable.

Most small electric heaters put out 1,500 watts...which is the max allowable. We have two Lasko towers, about $40 in Wal Mart.

I have a couple 500W heaters. Pretty worthless. Don't put out enough heat to help anything larger than a small closet.

I do use a small 500w electric heater in the water bay to prevent freezing when needed. Plug it into an outlet that is temperature sensitive and only passed power when needed.

We have a similar small heater. Use it to warm the wet bay if needed.
