Re: Winter Moisture Control

I wouldn't use any 'unvented' propane heaters below.. danger of CO buildup.

Our electric fan heater has a 'tilt' switch and shuts off if it falls over, I think the biggest advantage of the oil heaters is that they are quieter.

Espars and the like are thirsty both for fuel and power.. so there's no 'free lunch' as they say. If you've shore power available I think a combo of a dehumidifier and a modest heater should work. (the dehu gives off some waste heat too)
