BoatUS has these top four tips when using a portable electric heater:
1. Turn it off:
Never leave a portable electric heater on while you are away from the boat or when you go to bed.
2. 'Tip Over' switch is a must:
Many portable heaters are not intended to be used for unstable locations and don't have the wide bases needed to keep them upright when another boat's wake strikes your boat. Use only an electric heater with a tip-over switch that will shut off the heater automatically if it gets knocked over.
3. Keep the heater separate:
Never use another high-amperage appliance on the same receptacle with a portable electric heater.
4. Don't take the 'Extension:'
Never use an extension cord with an electric heater
Here are some portable heater ideas.
