    I'm so happy because I though it wasn't any heat nor AC but now I just gotta find a way for the AC. Thank you all so much for helping me. I have a window unit for AC

    If its an either/or situation, I think that heat would be deemed more important than hot water. [:)C]

    I wasn't really concerned either way because I was told I didn't have neither. So my mind set was you can buy a buddy heater if the ones I haven isn't sufficient. I was thinking of hot water heater because it's a sink there and to me a sink suppose to have hot and cold water. In all I was prepared to buy things to make this camper comfortably living. I am extremely excited that it has heat, although I don't know if it is hook to the gas line or electric. To respond to your response, yes I do believe heat is more important then a hot water heater when it comes to pop up camping especially in the cold months.

    If it's got an exhaust, it's gas. If you're going to use the gas furnace, and the prior owner said it didn't have one, be sure to get it checked out first. It may or may not be functional.

    Also, you'll need to have a functional carbon monoxide (CO) detector in the camper.

    It is definitely the furnace. Make sure it is clean prior to starting the furnace, it is for air exchange

    Stacey, your profile doesn't specify what part of the world you live in so I don't know how cold it will be when you're camping. But I can say that I've never had to light the gas furnace in my (admittedly small) popup. A 1500 watt electric heater has been quite sufficient to keep us warm when we camp in chilly weather. We're in the South and typically camp in AL, GA, or TN at state parks with electric hookups. We're not camping when it's below freezing. But we have camped when it's in the 40's at night and the little electric heater (and an electric blanket on the bed) kept us comfortable.

    Stacey. Water heaters are 6 gallon capacity heater with foldable outside access door. You don’t have one based off your previous discussion over shower.
