Default Logan and Trails West Heaters?

Anybody have any experience with the factory supplied heaters in a Logan or Trails West? Looking at a new Logan trailer and wondering if I need the new 70,000 BTU Hot Dawg heater? It is only available in the 2019 and apparently is now standard in the Zbroz edition. Is the basic 40,000 BTU heaters these come with enough to warm the trailer? I want to be able to hang out and sleep in this trailer at times, with young kids. Just wondering if the extra money is worth it for the dual heaters?

I have a 2016 burandt 28í bumper pull. The 42k furnace is more than enough.

Get the hot dawg. It is the bomb. The 40k is not enough when cold. The hot dawg will warm it up and the 40k will maintain. They all have the same heater and they aren't enough.

Btu isnít the factor In the space were talking about.

CFM Is the real issue. And air recycling. All these trailers suffer from intake and exhaust differential. They produce great heat but they donít circulate the air.

Does the hot dawg over 40k come with a 100 gallon propane tank?

I am sure it eats up some serious propane. Comes with two 30 gallon tanks. Seems to only make sense to use it to warm the place up, then use the smaller heater to keep it warm....

My burandt trailer will kick out on the limit switch when running a long time. To thaw sleds fast I set the thermostat at 90į and the timer for 3 hrs.

The intake for the furnace isnít adequate. Iím currently installing a intake vent right at the heaters intake... Iím also going to add a couple more directional vents and open up the outlet side of the furnace. The heat in the compartment where the heater is mounted was over heating due to restricted outlet flow and a heated intake flow.

You could do a radiant floor heat. They make small DHW heaters for off grid cabins and such. You only get about 80-120 degrees real world temp but if you put in new floor with the aluminum skin and then 1/4 marine plywood over the top it would work well If you could pitch the floor slightly to a one way valve you could drain the water as it melts. You'd loose heating capacity because you'd need a heavy glycol mix but it could work sweet. You'd use about 4-5 amps for a 12 volt pump so it may be impractical for a whole weekend.
Sorry if off topic I'm a heating service tech and this is a project that I'd love to try some day now
