Here is a photo of the space heater box so you can be sure to get the right one.

Oh dear, got to return it ... didn't come with a cat!  (Just kidding, dog person here.)  ;D
 
Box looks familiar.  I think differences in model numbers may reflect nothing more than color.  Mine is black with silver in front.  Some others are all silver colored.  All other specs match.  Whatever the color, it's a great little heater.

Thanks for the post seilerbird, I think I'm going to pick one of these up instead of using the radiator one I'm using now.

The one thing I like about this one is that you can set it to a certain temperature and when it gets there it shuts off. I was looking for something like that.

One review I read that I didn't like was this one: One thing we don't like about the heater is that you can't set a specific temperature on the low fan setting. It automatically jumps to the high fan setting if you try to set a specific temperature.

Is this the best heater to get? This is the first heater thread of got to so far.

Does anyone do like I do and turn on the RV propane furnace for a bit to blow some hot air in the RV quick while the electric heater is heating up?

I would SO love to use the RV's propane heater all the time but my propane heater is built in and I don't want to be driving to the RV station every few days. So I will just use it like I said above just for short periods to quickly get some heat in the RV then switch to the electric heater.

Why can't propane be cheaper and not get sucked up so fast. If I could run the propane heater all the time I would be in heaven. It pumps out heat so quick. But having to drive over to the RV store every few days would just be to much for me. If I only had to go every 2-3 weeks that I could handle.

We had an oil filed heater and found the only way it heated a room was if a fan was blowing on it.  Got rid of them and got two little lasko ceramics that look like flowerpots.  Quiet and effective.  And about half the size of the towers.  We've been using them for several years without a single problem.  WalMart has them as well.  IMHO Lasko builds pretty good heaters.

I also tried an oil filled heater before buying the Lasco. I had to virtually wrap myself around the oil filled heater to get warm. The Lasco puts out heat all over the room. I have been using it for five years now and I am still very happy with it.
I would like to apologize to anyone I have not yet offended. Please be patient and I will get to you shortly.

I've had the exact same Lasko ceramic tower heater for 2 years now and agree it's fantastic.
Hate the oil filled ones. Takes too long to heat and sounds like you're making popcorn.

I know propane in the parks is high and it was in Houston.

A neighbor just topped off her 2 huge 500 gallon propane tanks
for $.99 a gallon.  That is the cheapest we have seen it here in
many a year.  But we buy from a place for MIL's house that you
prepay for the year, pretty neat.

I have a couple of Voranado's, they are good heaters.  My bathroom has 9 foot ceilings,
not warm enough for me in the winter so I run one when taking a bath.  Also use 2 of
them in the motorhome at times.
