Re: Heat

Sunbeam fan forced with a manual adjustable thermostat. 120 Volts, 12.5 amps. Cost very little at Walmart.

Re: Heat

Although not real cheap, I get great use out of an electric blanket. I sleep on top of it. You can run it from you inverter, uses very little electricity, 180 watts on high, but I run it on two (out of ten). Would mean not running your generator when sleeping. Toasty!
