Re: Issues with Heating in Annapolis, MD

Question: What amperage are you drawing from the two oil-filled heaters? I'm running one, and then feel I'm pushing it to add a heating pad in the V-berth, but that is making it tolerable up there. My rooftop HVAC is on the secondary shore power line, but that is the only line with an ameter, so I'm not able to see exactly how far I'm pushing my house circuit. I want to make sure I'm never running past 80% capacity (i.e., 24 amps) on that line.
