If you have experience with these, how does mounting the heater on an inside wall work for when you're traveling? Won't all the jostling tend to bang the heater around? Or will those three screws that the heater slides onto hold it tight?

I mounted a different, but similar, vent-free heater in my Scamp 13 by bolting it to the closet wall below the closet door. No problems.

I have seen an installation in a Casita where the owner fastened it to one of the lower kitchen cabinet doors so it was totally out of the way when the door was closed.

Since you probably have access to the backside of the surface you're attaching the heater to, you might consider using round-head screws with matching nuts, washers, and lock-washers to hold the heater tight to the wall. Just pre-drill the hole pattern (make a paper template that matches the hole pattern on the back of the heater) so the screws just barely fit through the holes, put the nuts and washers on the inside of the cabinet, round heads to the heater, and tighten from the inside of the cabinet.
