Electric heating pads for pets...

You can buy electric heating pads that are especially designed for pets. We bought a cat sized one for our outdoor cat which seemed to be much appreciated. As I recall they do come in different sizes.


Only he who attempts the ridiculous can achieve the impossble.

In this video you will see what we used for heat. Mr. Heater attachments are great, we evn cook with it if we have too, heat and boil water for coffee. We had a seven day blackout last year and this set up is what saved us from ruin. They cost about forty five dollars from most hardware stores.YouTube - 1970 Airstream in Winter storm
Mind you YOU MUSTunder skirt that trailer...Bales of hay is kind of dangerous...but you want mostly to block the wind from going under neath. Your central heat is going to EAT YOU UP! Just get a tank with a Mr. Heater and set it on the corner by the front door...and position it in just the right way that you know it is not going to roast a wall. Because it does not take long at all to heat the house with it, you can roast hotdogs etc and boil water if you are carful using the right cooking stuff.

using those Mr. Heaters indoors is a recipe for disaster. A propane heater needs oxygen to mix with the propane in order burn. The unit will slowly burn up all the oxygen in side the trailer. They do burn clean as long as they have a supply of oxygen and emit only carbon dioxide (not harmful). But carbon dioxide is lighter than air and will rise to the ceiling as the heater burns the height of the oxygen in the room will drop until it falls below the level of the burner. Once that happens the burner can no longer burn clean and starts emitting carbon monoxide (this kills you). Please do not use open flame burners in an enclosed space.
People die every year from doing this!!!!!!
