I don't suppose you would be wil;ling to ship it to Canada?

Do you know it does not work or just nnever tried it?


I have no problem shipping to Canada, but let me take some pictures and post them (tomorrow)
I do not believe it works, it is fairly rusty and old.

Take a look at the pics and decide!

Thats the same heater I had in my 13 footer when I bought it.

It worked well, but it has a fan and needs to be vented. Power consumption.....
Power consumption? Did you replace it? If so, what did you replace it with?

If you are looking at these, I have seen the prices vary up to 100 bucks either way!

Shop carefully (I got mine from an rv part salesman friend, so I got the good old boy discount)

Could you be a little more specific as to parts needed to terminate the gas line. My Casita has a tee connection and I'm removing the heater. Could I install a quik disconnect of some kind for the catalytic heater? ANY simple instructions would be greatfully appreciated!!!
Thanks in advance, chuck h.

There are two schools of thought about these heaters. Some believe that when ever there is an unvented heater indoors it is unsafe.

Others believe these catalytic heaters are totally safe.

This is a good read.

Your gas line is probably 3/8" copper line with a 3/8" flare nut on the end where it was connected to the heater. You need to plug this nut with a 3/8" flare plug. You need two crescent wrenches to do this. It is also helpful to put some propane rated thread lubricant on the threads of the 3/8" flare plug. This will make a good seal without having to over tighten the connection, which could possibly crack the flare nut. Feel free to ask questions.
