Hey Todd,

I don't recall if I posted my useage experiences, but I have been using an RV-500 in an RV since 2000, an have NEVER had a single issue with them. I like them so much that I became a dealer for them.

Any questions? Fire away!

Lew, I'm glad I found a RV-500 user! I have been exploring replacement possibilities in my '75 model here: http://www.airforums.com/forums/f445...dor-40764.html Several posters in that thread suggested I contact you and I just got lucky and happened to find you here. I'm not sure if a discussion of the RV-500 and the on-demand systems is okay in this thread and with Rodney's theme of propane usage during boondocking? But briefly, my first concerns are about mating the RV-500 dimensions with the older Bowen. What I'd hoped to do is build a discussion in a thread devoted to this topic, perhaps in the context of an actual replacement, and assessing the pros and cons of these systems.

Todd,

Maybe start a new thread to address your new topic.

Update on my AS education

Hi All,

Here is it in Burma Shave Fashion as perfected by a prodigious poster.

New batteries worked great.

Took a charge to beat the band.

Had heat all night long.

Heat is good when it is 29.

I am a happy guy, the wife is happy, the dog is happy.

The Honda 2000 does the job.

Except my Micro Wave is a hog so we don't use it.

See you in a week.



Thanks
