New Camper questions

Hi
We just got our first Jay Feather x17z. 2015 Model.

During our orientation the technician mentioned a small fan/heater that can be plugged into some hole on the ceiling area by each bed to provide additional heat to those areas. I cannot seem to find this product online. does anyone know what he was talking about?

Thank you!

This is what our dealer said we could get to go into those bunk plugs. He just mentioned fan and light. I have not come across any with heat.

What would be a good option for a small heater inside the camper to provide additional heat so we don't have to use up all the propane?

We have an X23B. We have camped in 30 degree weather and we use a small 1500 watt heater when hooked into campground power. It has a fan, thermostat and it oscillates. It does a really good job of maintaining temp to around 66 to 68 degrees. Bought it at Walmart for around $30.00.

If you've got access to shore power, any 120V heater will do fine. The original owner of my old trailer did that when they parked in campgrounds.

If you are boondocking, you'll have to use the propane. And carry a spare bottle.

I just purchased a 2009 Jay Flight G2--6200 lbs. Will a Ford, F-150 supercab with Ecoboost be enough to tow it?

You will have to check the stickers in the door frame for that.

I always find that at night most of the cold I feel is coming up from the damp ground under the bunks not from the sides of the tent. I started putting a comforter on top of my mattress and sleeping on that and found I didn't feel the cold anymore. Though of buying a topper but a old comforter from home was cheaper and worked well.
