I've given lots of thought to removing my heater also. The pilot light won't stay lit, and I have no idea how much effort it will take to fix it if it is easier just to remove it and use the space for storage. It just seems like too much heat for a Boler. I camp from April to October, and if I'm not at a plug in for a space heater, then it's warm enough to have the windows open. (I must admit that I camped in Mission, BC in late June and froze all night because the power was out due to a huge storm. Everyone else had turned on their propane heaters...) There are a few reasons to keep it if it works!

I see you are in WA-so much great camping over there!

You would be REALLY impressed with the road down to that spot. I can only describe it as painful to even walk down or up. It's only 150 ft with 2 switchbacks, but its a cardiovascular challenge. Once I comitted it was a breeze, but SOME people in my family had doubts.

Could be a < $20 thermocouple.

Check out Roy's reply. It MAY be a simple and (relatively) inexpensive fix!

I just purchased a 1973 Trillium that has been gutted. If you have any manuals I would be more than happy to pay you for it, Flora

Flora on the home page of this forum on the left hand side you will find a link to the Document Center there you will find manuals for most appliances as well as trailers. Most of the appliances are the same makes/brands regardless of trailer brand.
