We've used ours a lot. As with all heat-producing DC stuff, it doesn't put out a lot of heat. Ours has a 45-minute timer. Historically, we used it to pre-heat (actually warm vs. heat) the bed on cold evenings and maybe fire it in the morning before we get up. It worked fine on our standard 12V outlet fueled by 14 AWG wire, by the way.

It's probably in our past since this electrical powered propane appliance walked into the galley:

I use some thing like what you have, built by AT Overland, portable forced air heating uses the Proplex H2000

This is the blanket I have. Unless there’s a timer function built in someplace, it doesn’t seem to have one.

Done? Surely you jest. A teardrop is never "done".

Ours has a selector switch for either 30 or 45 minutes. It’s an line little box.

$30 or so on Amazon. It’s not real big.

When shore power isn't available we use 2 12 volt bed warmers on our queen size bed

For years we had a queen sized one on the bed all the time but it finally gave up.
They discontinued all but the bunk size after the 2008 recession.
They keep us nice and toasty, one of the reasons we have 2 batteries.

Which fridge do you have? Is it kept in your trailer or TV?
