Hat,

I kind of like the free-verse format.

I use the Vornado space heater - learned about it from the forum. Quiet and effective.

is there a way for an original poster (me) to edit the title of a thread for clarification?

I'm thinking this thread should be called "Using the heat pump/strip instead of furnace."

instead of

"Using the heat pump instead of furnace."

Ah -

I gotta say I hated the heat strip and wouldn't use it unless I had run slam out of gas and I didn't have enough blankets.

Other than that, it was just fine.

Has anyone rigged up a thermostat to the roof mount AC/heat strip units that will give you a true temperature setting?

Thumbs up

As a relative newby I can relate an experience that happened to us while camped in Northern Arkansas. It was our first cold weather outing and we had our heat pump on that night. The temp dipped into the 30's and the furnace kicked on for the first time. The "burn-off" fumes set the smoke detector off! We got our first Fire Drill at 5:00 am on a Sunday morning. I wasn't sure what was going on but soon figured it out. Had an early breakfast and saw a beautiful sunrise. Also, hit the trout water before the mist was gone. All's well. The thermostat will definitely switch the heat pump to the furnace.

Welcome to the forums, *ship capt...and ain't those night-time fire drills a hoot? Not only do they freak people out, but they really freak out the pups!

Thanks for sharing...and the fact that you made the most of it with an early breakfast, sunrise and an early start to fishin'...

Hi, no, but I did replace the manual thermostat for the furnace with a digital one. The heat strip works just fine as is. Sometimes I wonder why people don't want to use the furnace, airconditioner, heat strip, propane, or anything else their trailer came with; Why not order an empty trailer?

I found a post where a thermostat had been added... looks like a good start to solving my problem...

Thanks Nick.

Tried the heatpump once on ours-too noisy for my liking, I'll pay for the propane and use the furnace instead.
