ceramic cabin heaters:
We are fortunate that the previous owners foresaw the potential challenges of winter life aboard the boat. They installed power outlets connected to three of the four HVAC systems which can power the electric heaters when the reverse cycle heat is off. This means that the large amperage draw needed for the electric heaters is distributed evenly through the installed HVAC breakers therefore not affecting the normal outlets and appliances. Before we plugged into these "new" outlets, our wonderful heaters were tripping breakers and causing headaches.
