I have been living in a fifth-wheel camper for nearly a year, and I will be the first to tell you that it is a completely unusual experience than normal living; Campers are intended for getawaying purposes, and they are not meant for full-time living, however though my camper was made to be used for any season, the heating system in the camper was not created for use year-round.
I have had a lot of trouble with this heating system, however it has served me well so far.
Camper heating systems are identifiable because they are created for small spaces, however when I first moved into our camper, I couldn’t find the heating system someplace! Eventually, I opened a small closet and noticed that the small metal box inside of there was the heating system! The heating system was smaller than our water furnace and was straight-forward to carry. The camper heating system runs on propane, and the people I was with and I correctly only spend $40 a week on heat, which sincerely is pretty affordable! However, the people I was with and I also supplement that with a space furnace since you don’t have to pay for electricity at a campground, but since the heating system runs on propane, it is legitimately pressing that the heating system is properly vented, then during the ventilation process, your heating system can lose up to 15% of its heat, making propane heating systems legitimately inefficient, and another reason camper heating systems are identifiable is that they are super costly. Camper appliances, in general, are lavish because they are considered recreational, which allow them to price the wares more than the standard units. The heating system of a camper is legitimately not intended for constant use.
