RV furnace or wall mount

3 posts in this topic

which would you do? a RV furnace that needs a battery to run but will blow warm air across the floor. or a quiet vented wall mount with no fan or battery. I already have the furnace from my camper and if I buy the wall mount it will run me about $400.00. the furnace has a 3 amp draw so I'm concerned about battery life and install of the furnace would be alot more work because of where I want to install it.

I personally have an RV furnace in my 6.5x12 fish house. I really like it and would have a hard time using anything else again. The battery draw is not as bad as I expected it to be. I can usually fish 2 long days on one battery's charge. The comfort offered by the fan blowing is second to none. The heat is distributed so much more evenly, which means a great night's sleep. The best thing of all is the fact that your holes will rarely freeze up with the air moving like it does. I fished some extremely cold nights last year and was suprised how well it kept the holes open. Oh yeah and the fact that it lights the pilot light automatically every time the heat kicks on, makes it alot more efficent as far as LP usage.
