I was thinking of going with a cat heater in the rear and one in the front. We will most likely not be camping when it is super cold, but want the family comfortable on a early spring morning. I read about warping if cabinets.... is this something to worry about in terms or placement? Is that the Infra red heater that does that? I cannot see anywhere a cat heater could be mounted in a trailer that would have a clear line of site. Has anyone had these warping issues?

Old thread, but I'm finally getting off the dime. When you vented to the refrig compartment, did you have to attach something to the grille (to the outside), or did you just vent into the compartment?

Thanks - Pat

Somebody, please, point me to the road.

into the compartment only and then INTO the flooring of the compartment for direct outside air...

clearly having 2 vents (high/low) for the fridge or a fan is useful here...

the plat/cat used to come with a pleasant looking round chrome? vent covers ...

so that IF the ducting goes directly to the exterior skin it looks good.

they may still have models/styles with 2 vent options (fresh and exhaust)...

i haven't checked with them in a while...


all of the true things that i am about to tell you are shameless lies. l.b.j.

we are here on earth to fart around. don't let anybody tell you any different. k.v.
