    JeffKonturWhy didn't I think of that? Tips and Tricks:
    February 17, 2021I am installing heated floors in my class A. The entire project is about $500 or so up front but then ongoing operating costs should be negligible. I have done this twice before in traditional homes and don't see how an RV is very much different.

    I am bu...  more

      David Leslie Jasper & JoJo February 17, 2021 I think I'll stick with my $20 pair of slippers and mostly carpeted floors.

      Bandit455 February 17, 2021 Of course when you say water, you mean glycol, right? Don’t want your grid freezing during a cold snap. Also, do you boondock a lot? This sounds like it may suck some propane. Why not go electric?

        Hellonwheels February 20, 2021 I have a similar system (that I paid a bloody fortune for) which uses glycol and is tapped into my gas tank. It uses a negligible amount of gas and would shut off before draining the tank and stranding me in the boondocks. The electric systems use much mo...  more

        JeffKontur April 6, 2021 I live in my RV full time so water is fine in my case. It will never just be sitting if/when it turns cold. (Someone who was not a full timer would be well advised to use glycol or winterize their system.) Yes, I do boondock a lot. This thing sips propane...  more

      Habadabeer February 17, 2021 That’s one ambitious project, kudos for taking it on!

      Paul & Kay Legare February 17, 2021 I'd like to suggest something to allow for the expansion of the heated water. Since it is a closed loop you would only have the T&P Valve at the water heater.

        JeffKontur April 6, 2021 Expansion is exactly why I will underfill the system. Water isn't going to expand more than 10% or so. (I'm just making it hot tub warm, not boiling it.)

      SilverSport February 17, 2021 Not something I would do, I don't have the heigth or space to give up, beside the reason I built our coach was be in warm weather, not hot, not cold. We like the ambiance of a propane fireplace when needed.

      Jim & Sharon Ham February 17, 2021 Good information in your write-up.  Seems simple enough with a closed loop but also sounds like a lot of work on the install.  We agree it will be nice comfortable, noiseless, dry heat when complete.  Hope you really intend to use that hydrofluid stuff th...  more

        JeffKontur April 6, 2021 Nope. I will just use water. After all, when cold temps hit is precisely the time I will be running the system. There is no chance of it freezing. (Make note that I live in my RV full time. The case would be different for someone who didn't. If your RV wa...  more
