2. Having already winterized the coach with RV anti-freeze is it safe to leave the electric hot water heater on for the heat in the basement?
3. If using the electric hot water heater element is there a way to heat the inside of the coach through that heat source?
Thanks for all your help, I appreciate any comments
1.Yes but it does not produce a lot of BTU's on electric.
2.Yes, no problem.
3.Sure just turn on the heat - it will kick on till it hit's the low temp limit then cut off.
IMHO a good light in the Basement will do as much, maybe more.
If you really want heat just plug in a couple of electric heater, (asuming you are hooked up) or fire it up, the diesel is fine when the unit is winterized.
Best of Luck,
