All I need is to connect a flexible hose from the capped-off propane line under the dinette seat to the heater. Temporarily mounted at the moment.

Got our Wave 8 heater plumbed last Sunday. Works good! Just need to make one more stop at Lowes to get an in-line valve and a fitting. Would be smart to have one close to the heater, under the dinette seat.

So how do these things compare to the furnace? Been so curious about that.

After arriving at a NP campground at 9:30pm, no light and raining, I determined that I needed back-up lights. Lights that would flood the rear of the TT and the side area.

So I installed two Lumitec 101292 CapreraLT LED Cockpit Flood Deck Light with Bracket Mount to flood the area. I wired it to the switch over the dump valves. This way, we can just turn them on and they stay on as opposed to going on and off when going between drive and reverse. Plus, you can turn it on when disconnected from TV if you need to flood the rear with light.

Well, that's to be determined. Compared to you full-timing, we're at the recreational end of the spectrum, so far lucky to get to use it for 6 or 8 weekends or extended weekends each year. I'm hoping to expand that a LOT as we get more and more situated to do so. Since we usually stay at places with full hookups, it's not that we "need" a heater like the Wave 8. I am more of a planner..."if" we don't have power, I want to be able to stay warm. Eventually, I envision installing a Kimberly wood stove in the trailer so we don't have to rely on power OR propane to stay warm. Same thing we've done in our house by installing a pedestal wood stove.

I expect that with the insulation qualities of our Avion, the Wave 8 will keep us comfortable most of the time. So far, I don't foresee using our trailer in really frigid weather.

Once I get a Kimberly installed....... Bring it on!

Gsmblue, it is from Marinco and is available from several online sources. Google:

Marinco 7879CR-FI Marine Stainless Steel Waterproof Electrical Cover with Lift Lid (Fits GFCI Duplex Receptacles)
I wanted to get one for a long time but when I look to buy one it seems it only has a hinge on the short side of the unit so it only opens from the end. I need one that has a hinge on the long side of the cover.
Has anyone found one where the hinge for the lid on the long side of the cover?
jayseejay, how does one you posted have the hinge mounted?

Bluto - mine mounts on the short side, and in my searches I did not find anything similar with a long side hinge.
