If your camper is already heated, even if the heat pump shuts down, the fireplace will continue to heat and it's probably enough to maintain for a couple hours.


Gotcha. Have you ever measured the temp coming from the heatpump? Just curious what it was. I know our house heat pump works down till about 10 or so with the new 410 freon.
Im not planning on camping in anything much below freezeing but you never know.

Sorry, I've never measured it, but it does produce a nice comfortable temp and when combined with the fireplace is very nice.

The floorplan we likes they quit making it. The 3536re.
Were going today to look at a couple big horns to see how they are built.

Im pretty sold on keystone though. Just gotta find the right floor plan.

Figured it was CW or HW. We bought ours there as well. Had some service done there but most at League City since it is closer.
They cleaned house at the League City store service department. Sounds like they may have at Katy as well, assuming that is where you bought.

I think you will be disappointed with the Big Horn. They are a nice unit, but look at little things like closet latches and other hardware compared to the Alpine. We were originally going to get a Big Country or Big Horn, they have some nice floor plans, but the little things metal vs plastic steered us to the Alpine.

I notcied that!

I also noticed on the montana the floor latches are not up to par as to the alpine.

I thought montana was above alpine but it seems alpine gets the goodys.

We are back to finiding a alpine.
