This RMH is being built in a room on the south side of a double wide Mobile Home. I'm wanting to see if an 8" RMH will heat a 1200 sq (approx) MH.
The generated heat will rise into the higher MH. I have an active fan that will blow that heat to the far end of the MH through it's small attic area to help,
when necessary, distribute that heat.
