Thanks Tom. I'll switch the heater to low power next time I'm on the boat. I don't think the circuit breaker can handle 2 space heaters on low.

We also have a 70 watt bilge-type heater in the engine compartment. That's the one that matters the most. It's plugged into the same outlet as the webcam. And we have a 75 watt light bulb that's securely mounted.

Of course, if I put the salon heater on low, the bottled water and beer might freeze.

Regards,
Brad
