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.

    • First off, the comment I made which you replied to with a hypothesis never stated that there was proof they did anything wrong. I merely and accurately stated that there was a chance they did some of the same things and it appears that may be the case.   You said plainly that VW could have chosen the Daimler tech but chose not to. In the end doing so may very well have found them in the same boat.    
    • Haula is probably going to see a lot of playing time so I don't doubt he will have some nice years, kind of like how Brodziak scored 20 playing as our first line center. I like Schroeder as first call up or emergency player but he just can't consistently bring it in the NHL, that is no crime because when he gets hot he is fun to watch but he just can't stay there. 
    • That's some good info, Thanks.
    •   I think they're shut down, too.  Smells like no money and more welfare...    
    •   Not sure if their still producing cardboard up at that plant anymore?
    • Now Haula and Tuch will have career seasons next year.  Haula is the odds on favorite to win the Ross trophy and Tuch should have a couple Norris' in the next 5 years.     Sounds like Wild might not bring Schroeder back either.  I really hope they are contenders for a strong center or a really nice goal scorer.  
    • Good point about the center support.  I wandered out to my ground blind on one of the last days of archery season to find the roof caved in and two poles busted. 
    • MMmmm Cloquet....   Smells like money.
    • I am a little concerned with it fading but it needs to be left up for the deer to get accustomed to it so no way around that.   I assume the sun is the main culprit in fading so I'll do my best to protect against that.  One spot I'm considering is tucked into some pines which create a lot of shade, brushing it in heavily should also help keep it out of direct sun as well.   Good point about a center support to help with the snow.  I'll make sure to add something.
    • interesting? oh its raining here too!!!!!!!!!!!
