I have an old Dyna-Glo Tag-a-long that is rated for indoor use (says right on it, all over the old box that I finally tossed and in the paperwork). I found one just last week at work that LOOKS identical to my old Dyna-Glo. Called a"Tag-a-long" Mr Heater/Sunbrite
(same company as Dyna-Glo but different names?). I didn't look at it much.
Here's a pic of what ours looks like but ours is putty coloured.
We mounted it on the bathroom wall (so I can just heat the bathroom are rather than kick on the heat for the whole place). It has a ceramic flame pad. Heats great. Downside.... uses LP. On LOW, it heats well uses little LP. On HIGH.. it sucks a tank dry pretty fast. It can warm up the whole 40 ft bus on low, not greatly but liveable (I need to wear a sweater and shoes... ick). Still putting together the AC/LP hydronic system (need to work on the duct work... need more $$) . It will be our "whole house" heating system. Currently we are running two of those $20 Patton milkhouse heaters from Wal-Mart
. 1350/1500 WATTS
One is in the front living area (between the front wheelwells) turned on most of the day and the 2nd is sitting about 10 ft from the rear of the bus (at the back edge of the rear wheel wells) facing forward. It kept the bus toastly overnight (low was 28°F) with the front set at "LOW" heat (or 1350 Watts) and the dial set all the way up, the rear is set on "LOW" as well and the dial set about 1/2 way (straight up). We get a lot of sunshine in the bedroom in the daytime, so we turn the heat off during the day. I plan on putting an electric faux fireplace in the old mantle we installed (LCD TV is in the top section where the mirror used to be). Maybe I can save the $$ up by Christmas.
Either this one that is actually in my store
or this one that I would need to order
So immediate gratification or the anguish of waiting for it to come in.... I kinda like the 2nd one.... decisions, decisions. And which one will fit better into the limited space available.
We stay in campgrounds on a monthly basis and that has tended to include our electric, we heat with electric. Because we have lived for decades in the mountainous areas of NC & TN, we have experienced power outages in the winter. So we are set up for both AC and LP. If the power goes out, we still have heat (LP), ability to cook (LP) and lights (inverter). Even when we have had metered electric, electric was cheaper than LP. We like the flexibility of using either electric or LP as the situation dictates.
