76 scamp13 original heater?

At least I think it is. It's about 10" wide by about 18" tall. A max of 4" thick. I called Scamp and talked to a guy in parts. He said he had been there 25 years and never heard of it and knows nothing about it. I wanted to know if there was a thermostat originally with the unit. So Scamp was a dead end. This thing has an electronic ignition you push like on a propane BBQ in the lower right hand corner. Lower left is (what i call) a thump lever you push left while snapping the ignition while trying to start (I assume). just to the right of that is the gas control knob. Off, Hi, Low, etc..

It's called "THERMX" Caravan MK II A, It has a chrome wire grill. Anyone know something about this old dog. Do I need a thermostat? Was it never intended for one? Any info at all will be greatly appreciated.

Sounds like a Wave !!! early model. With the hi/low and push to start on the unit I doubt you can use a thermostat.

Yeah that is an early cat. heater.

ACtually a quick google brings up this thread...

Heater Thermocouple needed

This one like yours, correct?

I love this forum, but google does a much better job of searching

I have one of the early Wave heaters, never been used and actually has an Oxygen sensor.
