I agree with Andy that heaters should be installed in a location where they are away from combustible things, particularly draperies and bed linens.

I'm not a fan of catalytic heaters for reasons I've written about elsewhere at length; there are better alternatives for boondocking.

But if cats are installed they should not be in the bedroom. Too easy to end up with a sheet, blanket, or article of clothing in contact with them.

I have an Olympic on both my 34' and have often thought of installing a second in each stateroom. The radiant heat is great. Safety sense should prevail!
My only complaint comes from the moisture accumulation from the propane. A vent left open solves this but lets out heat.
I think I'm opting for a tiny wood stove in my Classic just to avoid messing with lpg plumbing.

Smile Thanks

THINK I'll move on to replacing the bathroom flooring. The heater can wait a while but it would really have come in handy in the boonies for two weeks with temps approaching freezing each night with no generators.
