Thinking of getting propex heating after spending a few nights in the van this winter. (-10 one night....water in portaloo froze!). Do you need a second battery as i've only got one?

Do you need one, the answer is no, is it advisable, yes. If you don't have a second battery you could potentially drain you starter battery enough that it wouldn't start your van. With a second battery, (which is seperate from your starter battery), if you drained it flat, you could still start the van
