Electric Heater Source

Looks like it would be a good heater for an egg.

Their advertising states: "1500W electric heater delivers more heat than any 120V heater."

I'd like to know how they accomplish this. 1500 watts of heat is 1500 watts of heat.

Save your money. Get a $25 - $30 electric heater from Target or Wal*Mart.

There ya go, complicating things with math and science.

They accomplish this with crystals, prisms, and Amish cabinetry and if all else fails, with smoke and mirrors. Of course, eye of newt is always a favorite.

I just liked it due to the size and it looks like you can't tip it over.

I just bought an inexpensive one from Walmart. The one I had before was either off-low-high and it was a PITA as it was always on one of those modes. The one I have now is thermostatically controlled and with a tip over switch and I know it will do the job. I wanted to keep it inside and on low to keep things from going too cold even though the water system is winterized. I will stay out of the thermal efficiency and heat dispersion methods discussions.

It is handy to have a heater that can be set @ 1550 W or 750 W , if you are at a site that only has 15 amp service 750 W leaves room for other uses.
One thing that is helpful for us is an outlet for the heater that is controlled by a line voltage thermostat - then the temp. can be set and held especially nice at night .

This one has a very strong fan and will heat your camper more evenly.

I have two of these broan heaters. One for the Scamp and one in my bathroom. They work well, however the thermostats ore touchy. Just a tiny movement can change the temp 10 deg. I've never needed the high heat setting even in the coldest weather. They are hard to tip and have a tip safety switch if they do.

Smile Our heater

We found this type to be the best. It can be close to the kitchen. The fan ones are noisy, drafty and have the potential for igniting things.

This type, beside being silent does not get hot enough on exposed surfaces to ignite anything.
