Hi all. I haven't had chance to take pictures and post a more detailed account yet re: the installation (it will happen, I just have to find the time...
). I will give a high level report for now and am happy to respond to specific questions for anyone considering the purchase a proper heater.
First, I purchased mine from Propex Canada/Aurora sales through their Website. They are located in Duncan BC and do primarily marine installations of the Propex but also distribute to Canada. There support was fantastic (and needed since the wiring harness came incorrectly wired from the manufacturer). Once we determined the problem, Chris sorted it out and got me a new one in 1 week.
Is it quieter than the new suburban heater mine came with? -- Yes.
Does it work well in the space? -- Yes - It really kicks out the heat.
Is it easy to install? - Relatively simple. It does come with a male 3/8 gas fitting out the back which is threaded to british standard thread
so you will have to order that from a specialty gas fitting website online. My view is that being sold in Canada, Propex should have included it or at least mention that it is required but...minor frustration.
I ended up installing it inside the RV after all but may move it outside later as it's not too hard. I still ended up gaining storage space by replacing the installed Suburban.
Anyone looking for a suburban heater give me PM and I'll send you the details. It works great but was too loud for this light
