Here in Az the parks can charge what ever they want for electricity. The price can range from 8 cents a kwh to 17 cents a kwh. We use gas if the electricity is high and electric heaters if it is cheap. I will keep the gas option open. Besides that we already have a $1200 electric heater. Some call it a fireplace.

Still using my Mr. Heater when boondocking--I plumbed the LP hose into the trailer and the system works great. Get's hot enough that we don't mind having a window open a tad (just in case).

You should keep two windows open just a tad. That will eliminate the moisture buildup. Water vapor is a byproduct of burning propane.

CO2 and CO are also byproducts of combustion. Our heater, (Kozy World), has a sensor that will shut it off if levels get too high but I really don't trust it so two windows cracked just a little.

Been fine with one window open- no problem with condensation -- and Mr. Heater has a low O2 shut off as well, but we've never run the heater while sleeping. Turn it on and get the chill off then get into bed. When nature calls -- I turn it on again for a few minutes, then turn it off.

I can buy a few more of my ceramic heaters & pay for lots of electricity if charged by a campground or even run the propane,before spending the cost to get one of these installed.Just my opinion.
It got down to the mid 30's saturday morning while we were at Brushy Creek.One electric heater with a blower kept us toasty(we do have the Polar Pkg).It got back to 80 yeaterday and will hit hi 70's today,you never know this time of year
