Vented Propane Heater
#11
I got the Suburban 16,000 installed in my van. I am putting the thermostat in reach of the bed. I didn't pay near those prices, though. I bought on Amazon in October for under $400.
I haven't tried it yet, so no report on overheating until I try it.

I spent hours looking one day and the smallest rv heater I found was 15,000 but. I only need 10% of that with this polyiso insulation.

So it will only run 10% of the time!

Nice stove. I like those tiny cast iron ones. Great if you have the floor space.

I grew up with an old cast iron pot-belly stove back in the 50's. I hated that thing back then... we had no coal so I had to chop lots of wood to burn in it. Now, I wish I had it, for old-times sake.

I just want to mention that those "traditional" rv furnaces from Suburban etc. REQUIRE a good house battery to run.  Lots of stories over in the mainstream rv forums about furnaces that quit working in the middle of a very cold night because they ran the house battery down.  If you DO go this route, make sure you've got a big enough battery bank to handle it.

I don't like to make advance plans.  It causes the word PREMEDITATED get thrown around in the courtroom!
I'm NOT crazy!  My mother had me tested! Cool
