It may work as a heater for some people's trailers. For some it may not work very well, but have a look.
I have heated floors in my bathroom at home and it's paradise on those cold winter mornings!
This last time I set the thermostat 1-7 at about #3 or #4 then we went swimming then went to town for dinner and drinks so the bed heated up for about 3-4 hours before we got back to the trailer. The wind was blowing badly and it was about 15 degrees outside + wind chill. After swimming the walk back to the Tear our hair actually froze. When we got back after dinner and drinks we set the thermostat at about #5 then the rest of the night we would adjust only if needed. I kept it on all night long; it is not suppose to drain the battery even on high. I have used the trailer on 12v with the lights and heat pad for 3 days over a weekend. The only time I have problems with my 12v system is when I try to watch TV then I like to hook up to a landline.
I hope this has helped if I can answer any more question let me know. I am sold on the bed pad as is my lady friend, she has been hinting that she would like me to get her one for Christmas for her motor home where before she swore by an electric blanket.
