Going to look into this for myself. But it does have a high energy usage. Can be run off solar or wind it says but if you will be plugging in that shouldn't be a problem. I am looking at this because I am in Montana and need good heating and a high R-Factor insulation. I too have a really really hard time finding any information searching the forums here. Not sure why but whenever I search for something it comes up with 4k+ results and none of them have anything to do with what I am looking for. I must be doing something wrong.
I wintered over one year in the Colorado mountains. The coldest it got was a week of -20F at night and 0F in the day. The rig was an older 5th wheel originally with an uninsulated unskinned belly and no tank heaters. I put tank heaters on the three tanks, lined the underside with Reflectix (foil faced bubble wrap), put heat tapes on the water in hose and the dirty water fittings to just on the downstream side of the dump valves then wrapped those with Reflectix, made a skirt for the main part out of the plasticized paper lumber gets wrapped in, kept the gas tanks full and the heater on - never froze.
