Derek, we've had no Internet for a few days so apparently missed something. Did you get a new trailer?

discovered something new....the heater will stop putting out heat when the battery gets low...even though the fan still runs....and the low voltage alarm didnt go off...first i filled the low tank...no change (it was low and otherone was too) when that didn't work i backed my Rav4 over plugged it in waited 5 minutes tried it again and boom i have heat again lol....guess i will need that generator if im winter boondocking lol

I'd get a solar panel up on the roof with VHB tape and run the wiring down the channel by the sink where the thermostat is. I discussed this with Chandler when contemplating a Parkliner purchase with solar, that is the chase to use. With dual Optima batteries and a 80 watt panel you will not need a generator. If your batteries are dead now, then I'd bet they are wired incorrectly which I noticed Parkliner does. Wire them correctly before you lose one of those new Optimas. Charge them up, plug in a multimeter into one of those new 12v outlets and monitor them.

These conversations re. heaters that won't heat without external electricity sources always remind me:

I do so love the little fan on my catalytic heater that generates its own electricity from the heat produced by the heater itself!

I agree Francesca... if I would have went with a new ParkLiner, I would have went without the heater and got this DickinsonMarine.com - Propane Fireplaces

I had the P-12000 on my first boat, but the 9000 and installed it next to the bathroom door and would of made the screen door open in the middle, hinged on both sides so the heater would have fit. It can run without the fan, but .2 amps per hour is almost nothing. It would be awesome to have a fireplace to look at while layin in bed!

It does not appear to be correctly wired. It appears the converter charge wires (+ and -) goes to one battery and then back fed to the other. This is not correct. You want the positive from the converter to one battery and the negative from the converter to the other battery. You then connect the battery positives with a cable and the battery negatives with a cable. This makes both being treated as one big battery.

Jim Im not sure. It looks like in photo 3, that they do the positive and negatives connected together but looks like all 4 battery terminals/posts are going off the charger...Im gonna have to ask Chandler what is going on.

thanks

I don't see a problem with the wiring, but if the battery hold down strap is original, I'd be a little disappointed.
