I had a 3-way in a previous SOB trailer. The 12v element was barely big enough to hold the current temperature in the box most times and would not hold temperature above about 95. The downside is that it pulls a lot of 12v and at every stop of any length, I had to relight the propane and then switch back to 12v when leaving. I found that once the stack was allowed to cool down, the 12v element took forever to get it hot enough to cool the box again.

Yes the 12V option is not all it is cracked up to be.
