I’ve been looking for a couple items on the thrift store / garage sale scene.
My understanding is that ceramic heaters put out the same amount of heat but the elements themselves run at a lower temperature. Supposed to be safer.
I wanted one that had at least one setting below 1000w, since that is how much of 15A shore power I allot for non-charging loads. (The converter consumes the rest)
Mission accomplished: Patton PCH4199 ceramic heater for $2. I ran it on the kill-a-watt and it has a low setting of 750w.
I have heard many ‘dwellers say it is easier to vacuum than to sweep in a van. I was thinking about one of those “bucket head” wet-dry vacs but ran into this little Dirt Devil for $2 at the same garage sale. Works fine.
I got a dinky 300w inverter to run cordless drill chargers and I’ll run this off that if needed. The inverter claims to be PSW but I suspect it’s a smoother MSW.
