RV Comfort Systems announced their patented CheapHeat™ Add-on Electric Heating System is now available to the public, through their web site.  In the past, RV Comfort Systems only sold their product through OEM’s and RV Service Centers.  Because of customer demand, they are now going to offer the CheapHeat™ Add-on and Stand-A-Lone electric heating system, to the public through their web site.

With CheapHeat™  system installed the RV owner has the option of simply flipping a switch to use either Electric, or Gas to heat their coach through the installed central forced air heating system.

The RV Comfort Systems CheapHeat™ product is designed to be a 100% heating system. In most cases with this system, when the RV is plugged to an OEM recommended shore power source, the owner will be able to use electricity to heat their RV, to temperatures as low a zero degrees outside with out any supplemental heat.

The CheapHeat™ system is UL certified and RVIA compliant, in both the United States and Canada.  It uses a single smart controller that works all configurations, and is available with 3 different styles of adapter for the multi stage heater which works with either an Atwood or Suburban furnace.

With the addition of thousands of Woodall’s reviewed campgrounds and amenities, the TripMaker® RVND™ devices now feature more than 250,000 RV-focused locations, such as campgrounds and RV service centers, as well as millions of additional general points of interest.

“A year ago, Rand McNally introduced the first GPS device developed specifically for RVers and campers, and the response has been exceptionally strong,” said Dave Muscatel, CEO of Rand McNally. “The addition of the Woodall’s information provides RVers with a leading source of vetted campground data that no one else provides in a GPS device.”


the TripMaker® RVND™ devices now feature more than 250,000 RV-focused locations, such as campgrounds and RV service centers, as well as millions of additional general points of interest.

Two weeks ago at The Rally in Phoenix, Rand McNally employees demonstrated the Woodall’s information integrated in the TripMaker® RVND™ device. Those RVers who saw the demo gave it high marks. In particular, they raved about the depth of information, the ability to filter by campground amenities, and the option to review Woodall’s ratings and campground costs.

With the addition of the Woodall’s campground data, TripMaker® RVND™’s RV campground feature now includes:

  • RV parks and campgrounds with amenities such as dump stations, electric hook up
  • Contact information and seasonality for each campground
  • Private and public campgrounds including Corps of Engineers, National and State Parks
  • Woodall’s campground data for thousands of commercial RV parks and campground locations, with amenities including:
    • Family-friendly campgrounds and pets-allowed locations
    • “Big Rig” parks
    • “Green parks”
    • Site information such as extended stay sites available, typical site width and pull thru information
    • Services such as fees, escort to site, dumping
    • Essential information about seasonality and rates
    • Proprietary “5-W” ratings, which reflect the views of unbiased inspectors who visit and rate every possible private campground each year.

RVers can find campgrounds and route to them by address, or by latitude/longitude. The Trails feature allows a trail to be recorded and played back, enabling a return to a campsite when traveling on unmarked roads.

Not only is the Woodall’s information being loaded into new devices, but existing TripMaker® RVND™ device owners can download the data for free via the Rand McNally Dock. The Rand McNally Dock is a software interface (via a computer with an open internet connection) that enables Rand McNally device owners to update, back up, and download content to their GPS units. For more information about how to download the Woodall’s content, TripMaker® RVND™ owners should go to

Rand McNally’s TripMaker® RVND™ GPS units are available at Camping World SuperCenters nationwide, at, at RV dealers and at select retailers and online sites.
