Work very well and easy to install

I was somewhat reluctant to pay out $200 for a backup heater but it was well worth the money. I have had to live in my 5th wheel this winter in New England. I was afraid that, with all the use my regular furnace was getting, I might need an extra backup heater. As it turns out my furnace has been up to the task ( 11 deg so far) but I am still glad I have this as a backup because it doesn't need electricity. It works axactly as described and gives off a warm glow that you can feel all the way across the room. It does not give off any odor even the first time we used it. We mounted it on it's side, which they say makes it harder to light, but it was still easy to light. It takes minor skill and trip to the hardware store to installI the pipe from your tanks to the heater. Once I got all the parts (copper pipe, fittings and pipe compound) I only needed a drill, a pipe flaring tool ,a screw driver and a cresent wrench to install it. I recommend this heater.

Great Little Heater

I made the mistake of buying this on an auction site. I ended paying more than CW's sale price. I installed this heater myself, but I'm a very experienced installer for LP appliances. If you do not have the know how, tools, etc, have a professional do it. It's not worth the danger or pain of installing it wrong.------- This is a great little heater. I kept it on 'low' last night and it kept it about 55F while it was 25F outside. This little one uses the least amount of LP. It only consumes about 1/8 lb per hour, which if left on 24 hours will last 6 days on a 20lb tank. It does however take a few hours to heat up the area from 25F to get to 55F. I imagine that if I'd kept this on high it would be much warmer. I live in a 24' Class A and heat front/back separately which this works great. It heats approximately 100 sq ft effectively.------- I usually only use this when it's extremely cold outside or when I'm cooking in the front and need it to be a little warmer since the floor is tile.

Great for camper

Got this little heater for our camper. Used on the floor with optional legs. Did not have the wall space next to a gas line for wall mounting. It saved the battery on a 9 day hunting trip! All past trips had to use generator (not used at all during trip) to keep battery charged due to heater use. Used almost every night on low all night. High setting to much except for those who like it very toasty. Not sure about gas usage.
