Disc Furnance vs Oil filled
After recommendations from a previous post, we purchased an "Original" Pelonis disc furnace (Actually labelled Pelko now)
Tested it out on a 40 degree night and it is indeed quiet, not silent but night and day compared to the Atwood cranking on all night, which kept us awake.
The catch 22 as most have noted is ventilation, we cranked the Maxfan open about half way and opened the kitchen window a couple of inches. Laying in bed wondering if this is enough, so opened them a bit more, however, seemed to be fighting a losing battle with the cold air poring in.
My question is - do those small oil filled heaters also require ventilation? I assuming not so much as there is no combustion. With the extra insulation/thermal window/spray foam package, I'm surprised our 19 gets as cold as it does, on the plus side, it stays relatively cool on hot days.
Most of our camping since we've had the Escape has been at higher altitudes, hence the cold nights.
Some may say just rug up and tough it out, which we've done boon docking but you end up with a sore throat breathing cold air all night and it's really dry at 6000ft.
Comments on the oil heater option please?
