Default circulating warm air

We have a suggestion for circulating warm air throughout the TM when boondocking. We carry a portable fan which is very compact and runs on 4 "D" cells. It has variable speeds and a soft blade that won't hurt fingers. Best of all, it is extremely efficient - we place one behind the wood stove in our family room and only replace batteries once a season. They claim 300 hours before changing batteries. We bought ours from www.westmarine.com where it is model number 1844851 and sells for $19.99. We use it during the summer as well and even carry it when canoe camping in a tent in July and August. -Camp2Canoe

We do almost the same, only we use the 12 Volt Endless Breeze Box Fan. It can take the hot air from the ceiling and push it to the bed area. It doesn’t seem to take a lot of current on low, so it will run all night with the furnace cycling off and on. Our battery is a group 31.

We use the smaller model of the Buddy Heater with a seperate 20 Lb bottle and a 12 Ft. hose which lets us keep the propane outside and bring the hose into the trailer through a small gap either by the door or one of the vinyl flaps depending on where we want to place it. With temperatures outside as low as 40 degrees F we've never been uncomfortable. For sleeping purposes it's placed by the fridge and pointed towards the bed area. I don't like the idea of placing a heat source in the hallway itself nor have I ever felt the need to do so.
