I've not seen a "small" oil heater, what do you use?

Thanks Jim, I've got a bigger one similar to the first one you show but find it too big for traveling. The smaller you show is what the ladies used under their desks, I would think it too low powered to heat the trailer. That's why I asked what Barb uses. Of course there is probably a big difference in heat requirements for a 19 vs a 5.0TA.

You might want to check the escape warranty, last time i looked it does not cover fulltiming.

The 700 watt unit we carry in the winter to supplant the furnace....

Fulltiming is like speeding, do at your own risk

If I recall one of my backpacking tent manuals said it was not designed for full-timing. Probably is the reason I’ve waited so long to do it.

Some things are better left unsaid.

Lets hope the new company changed the warranty terms.

Barb, I use an oil heater like that in my bedroom, which is the farthest away from my heat source, a propane "wood stove". I'd be interested in a small one for the trailer. Do you know the brand and model? Thanks.

I have been reading the manual while waiting for my 5.0. You should check out ”Chapter 2 Effects of Prolonged Occupancy” if you are going to live in it.
