STEP® RV – Heating RV/s, motorhomes, boats, etc
STEP® RV 12″ (30cm) wide radiant heating element is designed to provide heating in RV/s, motorhomes, boats, etc.
STEP Warmfloor® has a long experience in providing heating solutions for the automobile industry. The heating elements were originally made to be used in car seat heaters, but the flexibility and energy efficient properties of the heater has later been used in a variety of applications. STEP® RV are made to be installed in the floors of recreational vehicles, but can also be installed in the walls.
STEP® RV has a higher wattage output than the standard residential elements, as these types of applications normally have higher heat losses.
The heating element is normally connected to a 24V power supply, but it can also run on solar or wind power. If the system is connected to 12V, the element will give ¼ of the maximum power – 11 W/ft (36 W/m) x (12)2 / (24)2 = 2.75 W/ft (9 W/m).

✔ Designed to provide heated floors in RV's, motorhomes, boats, etc..
✔ Ideal for both renovation and new construction
✔ Operates on 24 volts (AC/DC); Connect to a power supply, solar or wind power
✔ Compatible with any floor covering including, tile, stone, wood, laminate, resilient and carpet.
✔ Self-regulating; As the material gets warmer, less electricity passes through the plastic – therefore it is extremely energy-efficient
✔ Easy to install; roll out the elements and cut to size on the job site, connect wires to power supply and elements
✔ Maintenance-free when installed
