Heating Your RV in the Winter – A Novel (and economical) Solution

A few weeks back I was contacted by a gentleman who clearly has a heart for his fellow RV’ers. His name is Hank and he is clearly a very capable gentleman. He wanted to speak with me about heating your RV in the winter.

During the course of our discussions, Hank caused me to realize that while many RV’ers are in RV’s because they love the lifestyle, some have been “downsized” to existing in an RV due to limited financial resources. As one who is very “in tune” with the economy, I have little difficulty believing this to be the truth.

Of course, regardless of your financial circumstances, who doesn’t love to save money? And… since heating an RV in the winter, something one must do to one degree or another through much of the nation is literally burning money!

Save on Propane?! (forever)

For most, propane is the primary choice for heating – especially when it gets below freezing and the forced-air heating in most RV’s is the only way to keep the plumbing (tanks primarily) from freezing – and the subsequent costly repairs should that occur. Last winter, with severe weather across much of the nation, propane costs spiked and became literally prohibitive to some RV’ers.

As you watch this video, Hank’s invention literally changes all that…

Neat idea, eh? Consider the fact that building this is a “one time fee” (Hank told me it costs about $700. to build it) and could save far more than its initial cost over a  few years use. Last season, I know I burned about $500. worth of propane.

Hank’s goal is NOT to manufacture or sell this device. He offers the information freely and hopes others benefit from learning about it. He IS available should you wish to contact him, his email is hank0879@netzero.net

story continues below, but please do read my brief message here…

*****************A Brief Announcement***********************

While you’re here on RV Across America, please DO feel free to “poke around” and if you find something of interest, know that I developed this page as a source of worthwhile information AND as a means of supporting my “on the road” lifestyle (I ONLY promote that which I personally USE and BELIEVE IN). One product I am PASSIONATE about that I’d like to recommend is called Arginine Infusion.

What does it do?

Simple… Arginine shows GREAT promise in reducing the risk of heart disease.

This is NOT some “goofy claim” made to support the latest “miracle solution”. It is based upon solid scientific evidence.

Why not have a look at Arginine Infusion and the scientific research on Arginine to see for yourself. After all, if you enjoy the RV Lifestyle, don’t you want to be around for a while longer AND be healthy enough to enjoy it?

Remember – Heart Disease and Stroke is the #1 Killer in our nation today.

  1. The idea of alternate and/or multiple methods of heating was going to be my next project (my present ongoing ‘electrical energy ‘ project going slower than planned)and I’m excited to have come across this -Heating your RV in the winter- information.

  2. It is absolutely crucial to have heating in a van. Things can get bad real quick. If you’re in a van in winter, you MUST have a generator and an electric heater. It’s not negotiable.
