The moisture problems referred to in earlier posts don't seem to be a problem in your back yard. We ran the same heater in our 26' Overlander in Lake Havasu City and Death Valley Junction this week. My notes say that it was 34 degrees outside at 2900 feet. We ran one heater with plenty of ventilation and we kept the trailer at 63 degrees. Note that we had Prodex in all windows.

If you need it warmer or need more heat due to lack of window insulation, consider the Wave 6 or -- like us -- 2 Wave 3's. We like the ability to warm the rear of the coach in the morning and run the main one up forward overnight.

I mount them on hinges with a flex line. See my Caravel thread for details.

Hi Kevin245, I have a '68 Sovereign 30 and wonder where you installed the Wave 6 in your rig?

We mounted ours on the left cabinet bulkhead just inside the entrance door.

Timely posts here, as I just installed a Wave 6 in our 65 Caravel. It fits pretty well in the space originally home to the old Hydroflame. I had to cut .5" off the top and bottom of the cabinet opening and add a 2" piece of wood to the left side to fill some space. I mounted using the recess mounting kit. The original post here shows the Wave 3. The Wave 3 cannot be mounted with a recess kit, only the 6 or 8 can. The Wave 6 mounted, using the recess kit, looks and works very much like the original hydroflame. I am happy with it and it seems to heat the camper well. Will try it out more as the temps are expected to fall here again soon.
