Many National Parks parks are still open, or open year round out here, like Pinnacles and Lassen.

Lots of state and local parks with RV sites as well.  Skyline Wilderness Park is ideally located close to downtown Napa and the southern end of Napa Valley.  Quiet place with lots of hiking trails and great views.  Full hookups.

Doran Regional Park in Bodega Bay offers RV sites with no hookups, right on the bay and across the street from an ocean beach.

A number of Army Corps campgrounds sprinkled around some of the lakes (like Lake Sonoma and Lake Mendocino... And I think Folsom Lake)

If you plan to stop a bit up here in the SF Bay Area / Napa Valley Area, give me a shout and we can chat about all the things accessible from around here.

Hey, that's pretty slick!  This would be great for our tiny Pomeranians!  Won't have to lift the little things in and out.

We have a tiny Pelonis unit which does a great job. It can really crank out some heat for its size.
Pelonis Honeycomb Ceramic Disc Furnace - Model PF-1212  (1500W variable, 5A min draw, 12.5A max continuous draw, 5200 btus, $65 @ Amazon, auto/man, heat/fan/off, adjustable thermostat, overheat protection, safety tip-over switch, 6-3/4h x 5-3/4w x 5-1/4d)

Obviously with heaters you need to watch the amp draw as it relates to what source you have (20, 30 or 50 amp campground power....or generator) and what other devices you are using in the rig.

With many heaters the amperage is determined by the setting on a switch (low, medium, high). On this Pelonis unit the amp draw and heat provided is determined by the variable thermostat and current ambient temperature, meaning it will draw a lot if the rig is cold and you have the thermostat way up, but then as the rig heats up the amp draw goes down. 

If you are looking for tiny, they don't get any smaller than this I don't think.  Love the ceramic disc feature, for efficiency and safety too.

Jackson is a pretty good location, too.  The shore from Asbury Park to Cape May (incl. Atlantic City, Ocean City, Wildwood) are all very accessible, and Philadelphia is a nice day trip.  I'm originally from CT and spent a lot of time in Wildwood.  Many campgrounds along highway 9.  Beaches shouldn't be too crowded after Labor Day.

Ya know, there are limited components that cause a lot of heat and if you ignore engine and exhaust then you start to think about electrical issues, which can cause a buildup of heat.  Usually when you have this problem you usually trip a breaker or blow a fuse, but I wouldn't rule out the electrical wiring and devices in that area....side view mirror heaters, electric windows and door locks.....and possibly electric step and leveler.  Other than mice huddling around a little campfire in your door panel, I'm at a loss.

Holly :

I crawled under there this morning and I am totally flummoxed (that's a word, right?) about what is causing your heat problem.  My exhaust runs straight down the rig, a bit off the centerline and about 3 feet away from the passenger side of the rig.  It also is right next to the framing member that runs down the rig, and this framing member is between the side of the rig and the exhaust..  Between the frame and the side of the rig is a very large open space running from the passenger door down to the battery compartment.  This is the area I think you were describing, and on my rig there is absolutely nothing there but space....almost enough to warrant another storage compartment!  I hope the attached pix show what you need to see.

We've never been here, but this place was recommended more than once to us.

Liberty Harbor Marina and RV Park
Jersey City, NJ

The views look amazing and appears to be a great location for side trips to NYC.

We have a 2014 2552 and just did an 8500+ mile trip cross country with a lot of steep long climbs.  We didn't notice any extraordinary heat anywhere in the cab area except a bit warmer on the floor between the two cab seats.

I don't have any direct experience with (or anything more than general knowledge of) chargers, but during our last trip we met some folks who love and recommended this portable solar charger....
