Crack a Window to use Electric Heater?

We purchased two of these electrice heaters for the camping trip this week. I know you're supposed to leave a window cracked when running a portable catalytic heater that is powered by propane. But do you have to leave a window cracked when operating this electric heater that we purchased? Link to the heater specifications below:

Electric heaters don't release carbon monoxide - you can leave the windows closed.

Steve and Dave - thank you both for your replies. Ok, good to know. I don't know why I always get confused on this subject. But glad I now know.

With the electric heaters you still want to get the moisture out, or it can condensate inside walls, as well as windows. Yes, crack a window quite a bit, if many residents, or bathing, cooking, crack even more.

For me, these trailers are not large volumes of air (oxygen). I like to keep plenty of fresh air coming in.

Frank&Mike is in Pflugerville, where we are still suffering heavy pollen in the air, so opening windows has its own special hazards!

I say this as a person who cleaned their truck yesterday and came out today to see it covered in the yellow dust :/

Ooooh, I've got to post that video!

You don't need to crack a window when you use electric heat - except whenever you see condensation on the insides of your windows. Then you should increase your ventilation.
