To go a step further, Peatle, there is a a recent thread (Canadians, Should I fear them?) initiated by the estimable Ms. Knowles. The tone of the thread was light and self-deprecatory thruout. In the course of that thread, we celebrated the ways in which Canadians differ from the average plain vanilla North American. Alternative spellings, no doubt transmitted from Blimey, were mentioned. No noses were put out of joint in 23 pages and 200+ posts. Take a look at it; you'll understand.

I took the furnace out because I don't foresee doing cold weather camping ( we are new to this RVing thing and planning our first trip, across country, this summer when the reno is done). I thought however that I'd hang on to it in case we liked the life so much that we'd do some fall camping and might want to put it back in. I'd envisioned that if that was the case then I'd just recut a hole for the vent but now so many people have mentioned the aluminum patch on the outside I can see that this makes a lot more sense. If I wanted to reinstall the furnace then I could just remove the patch and use the original hole.

Thanks to everyone that took the time to reply and offer suggestions. I can't believe the number of replies that I got to this query ...... i hope I can return the favours. Maybe when I post more photos of the progress of the reno they might be of some help to others ....... thanks again.

A furnace can be pretty nice, even in warmer weather, if you get all wet, like caught out in a canoe in a rainstorm. Don't ask how I know.

Before you take the furnace out, try a weekend at Kane Lakes near Merritt in mid-Sept. when a cold front blows through. At almost 4,000', that wind blows cold.
Best would be do do nothing until you've spent some time camping in the new trailer.

Get some consistency, why dontcha?!?!

Whooops ..... obviously I confused the quote and misread who the query was directed at ! I can see humour in the remark when, as in this case, it is addressed to someone that one is familiar with and with whom a certain spelling might be out of context. My mistake entirely ! ...... thanks for the clarification Francesca

It's already out Glenn, but I am configuring the reno of the kitchen cabinet so that it could go back in if desired. Also, since getting tips from this forum, I'm simply putting a cover plate over the vent opening in case that needs to go back in.

Thanks Jack ...... I'll look for the cited thread.

I am wondering if your remark "transmitted from Blimey' should read Blighty which is a slang term for Britain whereas Blimey is a short version of gorblimey which is in itself a contraction of God Blind Me, an exclamation of surprise. Just curious, maybe you are meaning something else completely.

On one of our first camping trips after arriving in Canada ( 1970 ) we camped in a tent at aspen grove near Merritt on the May long weekend. We woke up to the tent covered in snow after the first night .. could have used a furnace then to.

Blimey, I didn't know that. The things you learn on this forum

1970, Aspen Grove! My dad owned the log cabin General Store, small world.

Cover plate going on rather than an iffy patch, I can sleep easy

Hmmmmmm! Just when I thought a level headed 3rd party was posting on here to help us Yanks interpret Canadian we get this, err, whatever you call it. LOL!!! I'm thinking a conspiracy with a lot of code. I did see a black helicopter a while back with what I swore was a Maple Leaf hidden amongst the camo.
