Does it have power to it? I have to have my a/c switches on for mine to work.

Dana: As you found out, the front toe heater requires the front A/C switch to be in the "on" position. The heat is then acivated by moving the thermostat which is normally in the galley to "heat". The "cool" position would be for the "kool-o-Matic" ceiling fan The A/C unit does not have to be switched on at the thermostat.

For some mysterious reason (to me at least), the bathroom toe heater works solely from the thermostat on the wall in the head. "On" or "Off"

Temperature of both heaters is just like you analog thermostat at home.

Cleaning them out is not a bad idea since they tend to accumulate a lot of "dust bunnies" and make sure your heaters are not the ones that were recalled. There is archived information on this forum about the model that was recalled.

You will soon find out the heaters work very well in keeping the coach warm when it is cold but not way down to and below freezing.

I run mine all the time when my coach is parked and not traveling in the winter. A small ceramic "milking heater" in the front basement bay will keep your basement warm.

40 watt bulbs on a long extention cord and hung in your outside wash station and another in the bay where your fresh water pumps are located will keep them from freezing.

Dana-

I think you may be making an incorrect assumption about the recall. My unit did not have a thermostat on the front of the heater--just the wall thermostat--but it did have the very fine wire elements that get hot enough to become a fire hazard if enough dust accumulates on them. You can get bolt-in replacements for $100-150 each (with larger heating elements) and the peace of mind is worth the money, IMHO.
