Heat Strip on A/C

Just purchased a 2014 Voltage 3818. We need heat in the garage. We are lucky enough to have an A/C unit installed in the garage. Has anyone installed a heat strip on their A/C?

I wouldn't waste my time or money. I've had them in the past. Not very effective. Pelonis ceramic heaters do well, may want to consider them.

I have a small slide-in camper that has a heat strip in the ac unit. It does OK but there is no thermostat . That being said, I also have a Pelonis ceramic heater in it. The Pelonis ceramic heater is a much better choice.

My Voltage 3905 has two Olympian Wave heaters. One 6000 BTU unit in the garage and an 8000 BTU unit in the living area. If I head out somewhere and plan to pay for RV Hookups I will take the Pelonis along with me.
