Combine with a Mini-split A/C for efficiency and you should be very comfortable.


Note that with some of those furnaces in the link above it's stated that they won't operate at very high altitudes. What's the deal with that?

Would need to re-jet or adjust the propane flow for proper mixture.

I've looked into them but, for 970 dollars I can figure out a way to charge may battery or do something else for the few times I need heat and don't have electric.

I would love one if it was cheaper. I also think that maybe they are way to many BTU's for small campers.

My furnace is 25,000 BTU's. Some of the ones in the link are smaller than that.
