I can't say that i've tried it myself but it looks like it would do the trick. You could set the thermostat to a fairly low temperature to save power but not so low that it freezes. I was just wondering how you were planning to run it - it says that it plugs in to a cigarette lighter but I doubt you'd have one of those in your barn! Can it use power from a regular powerpoint?

Yeah, I think it plugs in, but has a cigarette lighter adapter. I think it might work, too. As you said, set it low just to avoid freezing. And, if it gets really hot, you could keep everything just a bit cooler. I might try it, just to see if it would do the trick.

They gobble up electricity and I wouldn't trust that it would be reliable. About the time a med. Is needed, that danged thing has quit - Murphys Law.
