View Full Version : Portable Heating Options

I know it's July, but I'm starting to think about Winter ☹️. We will be spending this winter in the foothills of North Georgia, which will be a little colder than our last winter home in McAllen TX. I'm looking at portable space heaters since I don't want to refill my propane every 3 days. I'm looking for some recommendations from those of you with experience in the colder climates. Right now I'm looking at a 30" Lasko Pedestal Ceramic heater. I've also thought about the Dyson heaters, but I've never been impressed with Dyson.

We live in North Georgia and use a Lasko portable heater purchased off of Amazon. We can set it to 60 or 65 at night and then set the camper Furnace just above that. Very rarely will the small portable heater not keep the camper nice and toasty.

I have two Lasco's and they were both purchased at Walmart. They work fine.

If it gets down into the 20's you'll need to run the furnace to keep the water running. You might want to take a look at our owner-written Water Systems Winter Usage Guide (http://manuals.heartlandowners.org/?man=User%20Guides).

Just use your fireplace, if you have one.

I bought this Pelonis oil filled radiator type heater at WalMart.


I bought the small one which will keep the bedroom and bathroom upstairs nice and toasty . . .

I plan on getting the bigger model before our fall campouts for the living room and kitchen area.
