Over the years, many.. many times I've mentioned "You can never miss, what you've never had." Usually, that was aimed at folks looking to buy an all molded towable WithOUT a bathroom.... you know a Flushy.. not a porta potty.

Guess I'll never own a PU without heated mirrors or seats again I'm NEVER going back...

Know whatya mean. Our MKX was the first vehicle we've owned with heated and cooled seats. They're great.

Dated a lady in her 60s a few years ago who commented on my heated seats that she thought she was having a "senior episode" after she got in my car.

I'd look for a different name for that Trauma heater.

"Truma"... but it still might not be an optimal name. On the other hand, it doesn't seem to bother the Europeans, and "trauma" is about the same in most western European languages (it's Latin).

Problematic name aside, Truma has a range of interesting RV products... including a LPG(propane)-powered fuel cell (electrical power source) - VeGA. Not a reason to buy the heater, but this certainly appears to be a capable manufacturer.

Hi: Donna D... Down here in the Great Lakes Basin we don't have "Hot Flashes" but we sure do have a lot of "Power Surges". Alf

Forget about the floor - just wear socks. Go for the big winner at that early morning stop - heated toilet seat (plus bidet.)

From the (attached) male gender.. We suffer these hot flashes no matter the time of year. Thank goodness those days are now gone.
